A Cancer Killer in Plain Sight?
In August last year (2019) one of the newsletters I subscribe to wrote of a commonly used deworming medicine for pets (and humans, but requires a prescription, and costs far more) that kills virtually all cancer cell types, including cancer stem cells. For most therapies, aimed at fast dividing cells, stem cells are not killed because they are not dividing at all; chemo leaves them behind to reseed the malignancy.
The deworming compound, known as Fenbendazole, an off-patent, really cheap drug, is use for parasite control and is available at pet stores for around $10 for a weekly treatment protocol of three packets of powder taken three days in a row (I used the 2-gram packets) then four days off.
Here is what it does to cancer cells according to recent research:
1. It attacks the Microtubule skeleton of cancer cells, preventing them from dividing and from eliminating their own metabolic waste
2. It impedes them from up-taking glucose, starving them to death
3. It increases the activity of our Natural killer Cells in the presence of a masking chemical cancer cells produce to hide from our immune system
4. It blocks the formation of new blood vessels cancer needs to feed their rapid growth
There is now a rush to repurpose this drug as a cancer therapy happening all around the world, but you can bet the price will go up by about a thousand times, when it is offered as chemotherapy.
About 5 months ago I had a PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) Test and the result showed that my PSA score had jumped from 4.6 to 6.1, indicating that I likely had gone from prostate inflammation to the start of prostate cancer. I had an MRI that showed two hot spots, one transitional and the other likely stage 1 cancer.
Three weeks before my next PSA test (Jan 29, 2020) I started buying Safe-Guard Canine Dewormer . I took the tasteless powder with water on an empty stomach in the morning for three days (2-grams/packet) for the next three weeks before my test. Based on the acceleration seen at the last test, I should have expected a result heading into the 7s to10s with no treatment. On 2/23/2020 the results came back at 3.4! My Urologist told me “Whatever you are doing, keep doing it”, and he could hardly keep from laughing as I told him what I had done. “You better keep this quiet or the FDA will be sending troops to your house to lock you up”, he joked.
I’m continuing the treatment for the next 3 months to see what a longer-term treatment does, but I hope it will come out near zero, and I/we will have conquered the dreaded beast. We shall see! One other positive indication: I am experiencing better urine flow since that first treatment, and far fewer incidents of urgency to void suddenly; a good sign on its own. There are blogs in operation and popping up, so check for other stories using google search. One I found interesting was (Here).
