Polyynes from various plants help fight cancer 來自各種植物的聚炔有助於抗癌

Tuesday 06/22/2021 (jkzx.com) — Some plant foods such as carrot and parsley possess strong anticancer phytochemicals known as polyynes.   Studies suggest that plants with such compounds may be used to treat cancer.   And many cancer patients use them and eradicate their cancers.   The best known plant is carrots whose juice is commonly used by cancer patients to fight cancer.  However, carrot juice is not the only vegetable you can use to get rid of cancer.

Scientists have been searching for anticancer phytochemicals in other plants or vegetables that are similar to those found in carrot juice, falcarinol and falcarindiol – two polyynes.   Up to now, 24 families of higher plants have been identified as polyyne-producers of which, six produce these polyynes in high quantity.  They are Asteraceae, Campanulaceae, Apiaceae, Araliaceae, Torriceliaceae, and Annonaceae.

Some vegetable plants with anticancer chemicals belong to families of Apiaceae (carrot or Daucus carota; celery or Apium graveolens; parsley or Petroselinum crispum; parsnip or Pastinaca sativa; fennel or Foeniculum vulgare; caraway or Carum carvi), Asteraceae (lettuce or Lactuca sativa; artichoke or Helianthus tuberosus; and Solanaceae (tomato or Lycopersicon esculentum).

Polyynes can possess all sorts of biological activities including antimetabolic, anticancer, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory activities.   Anticancer properties have been found in the following plants:

C. albida (Asteraceae)
B. pilosa (Asteraceae)
A. lactiflora (Asteraceae)
G. koraiensis (Asteraceae)
V. scorpioides (Asteraceae)

Carrot or Daucus carota (Apiaceae)
A. graveolens (Apiaceae)
celery or Apium graveolens (Apiaceae)
parsley or Petroselinum crispum (Apiaceae)
parsnip or Pastinaca sativa (Apiaceae)
fennel or Foeniculum vulgare (Apiaceae)
caraway or Carum carvi (Apiaceae)
Notopterygium incisium (Apiaceae)
Mitrephora maingayi (Apiaceae)

M. glabra (Annonaceae)
M. maingayi (Annonaceae)
C. latifolia (Annonaceae)

A. cordata (Araliaceae)
P.quinquefolius (Araliaceae)
P.quinquefolius (Araliaceae)

Many people may not know this, but over 70% of anticancer drugs are developed from phytochemicals and or their derivatives. Many polyynes from edible plants contain natural anticancer products.  (Dr. Lu)
