Cancer is second leading cause of death in the US, humic extracts arrest cancer growth according to medical studies
According to the National Cancer Institute, about 1,228,600 new cancer cases were expected to be diagnosed in the year 2000. Since 1990, approximately 11 million new cancer cases have been diagnosed.
In the year 2000 about 564,800 Americans were expected to die of cancer, more than 1,500 people a day. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S., exceeded only by heart disease.
Patients with cancer causing tumors of the esophagus had 100% success rate in preventing tumor progression into the cancerous state when treated for two years with a humic extract solution.

One of every four deaths in the U.S. is from cancer. Since 1990, there have been approximately 5 million cancer deaths. Overall annual costs for cancer run $107 billion per year.
Breakthrough cancer research studies supported by the National Institute of Health clearly indicate that oxygen-containing molecules known as oxidants or free-radicals, play an important role in causing cancer, and that antioxidants or free-radical scavengers help suppress cancer.
In a surprising new development, the study shows that cancerous cells themselves are causing an overproduction of free-radicals. This alone can account for cancer's typical runaway cell growth.
Cancer cells have now been shown to produce oxidants that act as messenger molecules and send signals through protein pathways, bombarding surrounding cells uncontrollably with damaging free-radicals.
The study shows that certain super antioxidants work to obstruct the signaling protein pathways, neutralizing the spread of cancer and can potentially prevent it in the first place. Unique protein inhibiting antioxidants block the necessary signals that normally allow adjacent cells to become cancerous. Studies point to antioxidants as new anti-cancer treatment and prevention strategies.
Humic extracts (Fulvic acids) are nature's most powerful antioxidants. Pharmacological studies throughout the world have shown that various mechanisms within the humic molecular structure make it both a donor and acceptor free radical scavenger and antioxidant. Also noted are powerful superoxide dismutases (SODs) and metalloenymes of every conceivable kind.
While all humic extracts do not always destroy cancer cells, they generally halt their growth and spread. Sometimes tumors disappear almost immediately and spontaneously. Humic extracts are certainly cancer preventative, and it is certain that the higher the quality of humic extract, the better the ability to reverse and completely cure cancers.
Outpatient medical hospital studies on thyroid tumors, some cancerous, showed that injections with a special humic extract was 90% successful in stopping tumor growth and diminishing size of tumors, with 80% of patients having complete cures.

It has been found that naturally-occurring humic acid preparations can stimulate the production of cytokines, including interferon-gamma, interferon-alpha, interferon-beta, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha. What this means is that a valid mechanism has been discovered, proven, and documented, whereby humic extracts are able to work with the body to selectively seek out and destroy cancer cells.
