Scientists Find Milk Thistle Has Triple Action Against Skin Cancer

AMAZING news – please share: Scientists have found that Milk thistle protects against both UV-induced skin cancer and “photo aging” (light degradation) of skin.

Two University of Colorado (USA) Cancer Center studies, the second of which was published on Jan 28th 2013, have demonstrated that silibinin – the main active ingredient in milk thistle seed extract – has efficacy against both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB)-induced skin carcinogenesis and photo-aging. [1]

What’s truly astonishing is that silibinin has been found to act selectively – killing cells that have been mutated by UVA, while simultaneously being non-toxic to healthy cells and also accelerating repair of UVB-damaged non-cancerous cells.

That’s pretty remarkable: Milk thistle simultaneously a) wipes out cells with damaged DNA [2] b) selectively leaves the healthy cells alone and c) repairs the UVB-damaged ones: It behaves in three different ways when in contact with three different types of cells!

(cue applause for nature…)


The team from the Colorado Cancer Center, led by Rajesh Agarwal PhD, has been studying milk thistle for an astonishing twenty years. Rajesh Agarwal is co-program leader of Cancer Prevention and Control at the CU Cancer Center and professor at the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

How’s that for dedication to the cause? Pretty amazing. Let’s be honest – these are unsung heroes of our time. I take my hat off to you and your team, Dr. Agarwal.

Milk thistle is also widely regarded as having remarkable liver protection / healing qualities (this is what it is currently most often employed for) and has also shown some promising results in lab research against breast and prostate cancer cells. Did you know that it has also been employed as an antidote in some types of poisoning and is even claimed by some to be a hangover cure?

See the scientific studies for yourself – we’re not making any of this stuff up:

See a more extended list of studies performed by Dr. Agarwal and his team here:

Milk thistle is widely regarded as an excellent herb and is readily available as a supplement in capsule or tincture form. It is considered one of the “tonic herbs” – and lab tests such as this one have reported it not to cause harm when taken over a prolonged period.

The two scientific studies mentioned at the head of the article:

[1] Narayanapillai S, et al. 2012. Silibinin is a potent sensitizer of UVA radiation-induced oxidative stress and apoptosis in human keratinocyte HaCaT cells.

[2] Narayanapillai S, et al. 2014. Silibinin inhibits ultraviolet B radiation-induced DNA-damage and apoptosis by enhancing interleukin-12 expression in JB6 cells and SKH-1 hairless mouse skin.

The info source where I read the news:

Sundem G. Janueary 30, 2013. Silibinin, found in milk thistle, protects against UV-induced skin cancer.

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:


Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.

    am working at a pharmacy an i like this webside but i never come across with milk twister an i live in the gambia .

    What scientists find is that a natural phenol derivative extracted from a very specific portion of the milk thistle plant has some efficacy against cancerous cells in a chemically modified pharmaceutical format and in a laboratory setting in which the cancer cells are isolated outside of the human body. While this is potentially good news for cancer treatment research, it does not mean that you can use milk thistle supplements to effectively treat cancer as this article strongly implies.

    This is very good news,milk thistle supplements give positive good treatment results in certain tests.
