Dr. Nixon began studying Ellagic Acid in 1993, recently published results:
Cervical Cancer Cells - HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) exposed to Ellagic Acid from Red Raspberries experienced apoptosis
(normal cell death).
The tests reveal similar results for breast, pancreas, esophageal, skin, colon, and prostate cancer cells. In addition,
positive responses are observed in: periodontal disease, radiation induced chromosomal damage, slowing the degenerative process of aging, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetic retinopathy.
Scientific evidence is available that Ellagic acid may impede
cancer of the cervix and prostate. Early test in
some patients show Ellagic acid is present in cervical-tissue
after ingestion of meeker red raspberries. One test has evaluated
women with atypical-squamous cells of unknown significance
in which there is no therapy or medical evidence
available. ASCUS shows about 10% of Papanicolaou-smears in
the United States and could indicate approximately 5-million
women. Among this sample, females affected with HPV types-16/18
are at most risk risk of growing cervical Tumors at sometime
in their livetime. This group of people indicates approximately
one-million patients in the USA. In India
is one of the 2 prominent cancer effecting females.
at the NCHS Maryland, discovered a relation
between lowered incidence of heart-attack and elevated absorption
of salicylates. They realized that in the course of a 10-year
test starting in 1960's, when heart-attack occurrences began
to reduce, salicylate use increased due
to salicylates in convenience foods which had a synthetic
version to add taste and odour.
are also considered by herbal-medicine practitiners to be useful
in addressing the management of diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting
and morning-sickness during pregnancy. Herbal practitioners
do not advise using meeker red raspberries for these uses
at home though red raspberry-leaves are also indicated in many
herbal pformulas available in the United States for females
with a past recordof miscarriage or complicated pregnancy for
the reason of balancing uterine-contractions, morning-sickness,
hot-flashes, diarrhoea, and for
regulating increased menstrual-flow. Red raspberries are also
used as a mauth-gargle for sore-throats.
