According to a recent study published in journal of Life Sciences, a derivative of the traditional Chinese herb ‘Sweet wormwood’ called artemesinin can kill and destroy up to 98% of cancer cells within 16 hours. The researchers discovered that the herb by itself can cause 28% reduction in breast cancer cells, but when it was combined with iron, it can eliminate up to 98% of the cancer cells without affecting the normal cells.
When the researchers at UW tested artemisinin-based compound on human leukemia cells, they discovered that it was highly selective at targeting and killing cancer cells. The chemistry professor at UW and the leading author of the study, Dr Tomikazu Sasaki says that “artemisinin-based compound is like a special agent planting a bomb inside the cell. This compound is selective and effective for eliminating different cancers including leukemia, breast and prostate in laboratory animals”.-
