Weed cure for skin cancer

According to a recent BBC News report, the common weedpetty spurge‘ found in most gardens can cure skin cancer. A study involving 36 patients with skin cancer who had to apply the weed on their skins once a day showed that within a month almost 85% of the cancer had disappeared! It seems that was due to a substance called ingenol mebutate which is in the sap of the weed which not only kills the cancer cells but also encourages the activity of the white blood cells in our body that destroy residual cancer cells that could allow tumours to re-emerge.

However, folks don’t rush out to try the herb out without your medic’s approval as its sap ‘results in extreme inflammation and can lead to hospitalisation’, say doctors.
