  1. The grape cancer cure

    As far as I'm concerned, a grape is a ball of sugar wrapped in a purple or green skin -- and unless it's in a wineglass, I want nothing to do with it.

    But the grape seed is another story -- because locked inside all that sugar just might be the next great cure for cancer.

    In a series of experiments in both a lab dish and on living mice, researchers found that grape seed extract can ignite a self-destruct sequence in head and neck cancer cells without doing a drop of damage to any of the surrounding healthy tissue.

    In some cases, the extract slowed the growth of the cancer by a stunning 67 percent.

    This isn't the first study to find grape seed can beat cancer -- previous research has shown the extract can also do a number on leukemia cells.

    It's only a matter of time before Big Pharma catches on -- but they won't sell you grape seed extract. They'll sell you some patented chemical copy that's not nearly effective and comes with big risks to boot.

    Isn't that how it always works?

    Don't even bother waiting for their version: You can get plain old grape seed extract right now in just about any health food store -- and that's not the only potential cancer cure hidden in a piece of fruit.

    Next week, my Douglass Report newsletter is going to have the inside scoop on the most promising -- and delicious -- cancer cure yet. It's a tropical fruit you already know and love, and in a recent study it ran circles around one of the world's leading chemotherapy drugs.

  2. A dangerous squeeze

    A dangerous squeeze

    For many years, I have been saying that people are misled by the false paradigm of "early detection of cancer leads to a cure." This mantra has been especially touted for breast cancer, with women being urged to get mammograms early and often. Now I have support for my position from a distinguished doctor, Professor Michael Baum of University College Hospital, London.

    "Thousands of women are being deceived by the national breast cancer program they are led to believe that early detection of cancer will save their breasts," Professor Baum reported to an international breast cancer screening conference in Brussels. Up to half of all women with "early" breast cancer are having mastectomies that might later prove to be unnecessary, he said.

    Dr. Baum stunned his audience of breast cancer specialists when he said, "One of the false promises of the NHS screening program is 'come for screening, catch it early, and we will save your breast.' This is not true." He went on to add: "I think there is a deception going on."

    The problem comes with so-called ductal carcinomas, small, localized, very confined lesions that usually require no therapy. They can be closely monitored with no risk to the patient and may never have to be treated. Yet, women are misled and panicked into an unnecessary mastectomy.

    As I have pointed out in previous reports, the very act of performing a mammogram may activate an otherwise quiescent and benign condition. I call it the "compression syndrome." To get good pictures, the radiologist must compress the breast, and the more he squeezes, the better the pictures. If he misses a tumor, he is subject to litigation, or at least embarrassment, so he squeezes away.

    "It seems to me," Dr. Baum said, "to be a breach of trust. I am not for or against screening; I am for women having the right to make an informed choice. Women are socially engineered into thinking that breast screening is a good thing. I believe that if women were given the full story at least half would still opt for screening."

    Which means that half wouldn't

    A critical eye on bilberry

    There was a romantic story early in World War II about grandma's bilberry preserves enabling bombardiers to better see their targets. It was just that, a romantic story. Despite supplement sales over $97 million in 1999 alone, there is no scientific evidence that bilberry has any positive effects on vision.

    "RAF pilots who survived and continued consuming the jam or other bilberry products had perfect vision both near and far as well as a complete absence of eye disorders throughout their lives," writes one herb vendor.

    Bilberry has become one of the 10 most popular herbs in the United States as a result of the "Grandma Jams the Germans" tale.

    Claims have been made linking bilberry with improvements in all sorts of medical conditions--from hypoglycemia to stress, to inflammation, to night blindness, and, of course, macular degeneration. All with no science behind them, just folklore. This is the kind of trash that gives the natural health movement a bad name.

    So what did dramatically increase the accuracy of bombardiers as the war progressed? It was VITAMIN R-also known as radar. Wanting to keep radar top secret, the Allies said the improved accuracy of the bombing was due to something added to the diet.
