Why is Mebendazole Ignored As Effective Cancer Treatment?
The pharmaceutical industry and the medical establishment are making a lot of money and so-called effective cancer treatments. However, there are many other treatments that are more effective and cost less money.
Mebendazole (MBZ) is a commonly found, over-the-counter anti-parasite medication, used most often to rid the body of pinworms. It came into use in 1971, and now retails under a number of product names including Vermox, Ovex, Antiox, Combantrin and Pripsen. Found in most pharmacies and even available online, the drug is widely used, yet very few are aware of the effect it is seen to have in fighting cancerous tumors.
In the fight against cancer, the main attempt is to isolate then attack specific cells with poisons or by surgically removing body tissue. Radiation and chemotherapy are dangerous to the entire body, killing much more than just cancerous growths. MBZ, on the other hand is a unique treatment because it does not seek to kill cancerous cells with poisons, targeting instead the reproductive process of cells that have been replicating beyond their natural limit.
Known as micri-tubule inhibitors, this class of drugs prevents the replication of cells who’ve overgrown their capacity to reproduce correctly, which is the very nature of cancer
Human cells have a maximum number of times that they can reproduce themselves before the accumulated errors finally prevent reproduction — it’s called the Hayflick Limit. Most scientists agree that this number is around 60 times.
First synthesized in the late 1960’s subsequent research has revealed more about the drug’s potency in stopping cancer cells without causing collateral damage. A 2014 study entitled, Repurposing Drugs in Oncology (ReDO)—mebendazole as an anti-cancer agent, concluded MBZ holds great promise in treating tumors, especially when used in combination with other existing cancer treatments.
“Mebendazole, a well-known anti-helminthic drug in wide clinical use, has anti-cancer properties. Based on the evidence presented, it is proposed that mebendazole would synergise with a range of other drugs, including existing chemotherapeutics, and that further exploration of the potential of mebendazole as an anti-cancer therapeutic is warranted.”
Taken orally as a chewable tablet or in liquid form, the medicine has appeared in a number of cancer studies, including this study that looked at the effects of MBZ on cancerous tumors of the lungs.
This commonly found over-the-counter medicine stops the growth of cancerous tumor cells.
The last manufacturer of mebendazole in the United States was Teva pharmaceuticals who for unstated reasons discontinued the product in 2011, however, foreign-sourced brands are available for sale in pharmacies and at Amazon.com in the US. It is not yet recognized by the medical establishment as an anti-cancer drug, however, it many physicians are able to recommend its usage for reasons other than treating worms.
Add mebendazole to the growing list of so-called ‘alternative’ cancer treatments which are affordable, effective, widely available, yet broadly ignored by the cancer industry.
