Can Dandelion Root Extract (DRE) fight cancer?
Dandelion Root Extract (DRE) induces apoptosis and autophagy in human pancreatic cancer cells with no significant effect on non-cancerous cells according to research(1) published in the scientific journal, Pancreas.
The Dandelion Root Extract killed the pancreatic cells in a dose-dependent and time-dependent manner. It also attacked the cancer cells mitochondrial membrane but had no effect on healthy cells, according to scientists Ovadje, Panday and others. An aqueous solution of DRE killed both Bx-PC3 and PANC-1 cancer cell lines leaving healthy cells unharmed.
Chris Woollams, former Oxford University Biochemist and a founder of CANCERactive said, “We have previously covered research from the same team showing that Dandelion Root Extract could kill certain leukemia cells(2). Both studies show Dandelion has the potential to treat cancers where chemotherapy offers little. In the University of Windsor, Canada, the team led by biochemist Dr. Siyaram Panday has completed a phase 1 clinical trial on Dandelion and cancer in conjunction with Dr. Arnason at the University of Ottawa. Their work(3), using a concentrated root extract, has shown promise with 20 different types of cancer, in each case selectively targeting the cancer cell mitochondria but not harming the mitochondria of healthy cells. 2011 research was on melanoma for example(4). And 2016 research was on colorectal cancer(5).

It’s early days yet, but it seems the potential is there. At CANCERactive we have had several people use DRE with excellent effects against their leukemia.
Dandelion Root Extract has strong anti-inflammatory powers and is used with arthritis; it is used as a laxative, fights gut problems and is a blood thinner. It can also be used to lower blood pressure.
People can collect the roots, dry them and then turn them to powder - it could be the cheapest cancer fighting compound yet!”
