Hydrogen Peroxide and Prostate Cancer – Is there any truth to the claim?

Someone once claimed that he treated himself for prostate cancer once by using hydrogen peroxide, and that the disease was “stopped.” Specifically he said “?How I Stopped Prostate Cancer by Inhaling Hydrogen Peroxide Using a Nasal Spray Pump,” describing an intriguing process in which he shunned chemotherapy and stayed on hydrogen peroxide inhalations every day for the past five years since he was diagnosed, and the disease has not progressed till date.

It is interesting to think that that might be true and have evaded all the experts that have been in the study, research and clinical trials concerning this disease for the past? for ages. Not impossible, but intriguing. So could it really be true? Could hydrogen peroxide be that miracle prostate cancer cure that has eluded mankind for all this time? Well, let’s look at a few of these facts the way that they are recorded.

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is generally a very pale blue liquid, slightly more viscous than water, which appears colorless in dilute solution. It is a weak acid, has strong oxidizing properties, and a powerful bleaching agent. It is used as a disinfectant, antiseptic, oxidizer, and in rocketry as a propellant. Hydrogen peroxide is generally recognized and used as an antiseptic and anti-bacterial agent because of its oxidizing effect. Like many oxidative antiseptics, it is effective at rapidly stopping capillary bleeding, and is sometimes used sparingly for this purpose, as well as cleaning.

But what about prostate cancer?

Well, quite straightly, the American Cancer Society states that “there is no scientific evidence that hydrogen peroxide is a safe, effective or useful cancer treatment”, and urges that all cancer patients should stick to the treatments recommended by their doctors. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), there are a lot of standard therapies for cancers, and proven methods of treatment and approved clinical trials of promising new treatments. Patients should learn to be patient (forgive the PUN there). The inhalation of hydrogen peroxide at a concentration of about 1% is one controversial alternative medical procedure that has been frowned upon by people in the medical community. For one, such internal use of high concentration H202 has a history of causing fatal blood disorders, and several deaths have been linked to its recent use as a therapeutic treatment.

So is there any truth to the claimant’s claim that there is a link between prostate cancer and H2O2?

Well, there might be; it’s just that there is no medical evidence to corroborate his story. The man did say that he self medicated on the substance because according to him, ‘viruses cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment,’ but prostate cancer is not as much a virus as it is a malignancy. The said remission of the carcinoma may then well be a spontaneous one. In any case he did add that he was over eighty years old, a time when early stage prostate cancer may not cause any outward symptoms before other ailments associated with old age take you.

The best thing to do would be to wait for the outcomes of the doctors’ and researchers’ clinical trials.

    I was diagnosed with prostate cancer 4 years ago. My doctor scarred teh hell out of me, he said that without immediate surgery I had 5 to 15 years to live,
    I started drinking Hydorgen peroxide and my PSA levels dropped, they were only 3.5 in the first place, but dropped to .6 after about 3 years I stopped drinking it and my PSA’s are now 1.1. Originally I had 2 prostate stones and they are gone as well. I only had 1 one positive out of 12 cores, so my cancer was caught fairly soon. One positive side effect is my arthritis went away, it still shows up on a scan, but no pain or stiffness.
    I used 35% food grade and put drops into 8oz glass of water. (started at 3 and worked up to 25, then back to 15). started at 3 times a day and worked down to once every 4 days.
    Does it really work, I will never know, because if they took more cores they can easily miss the cancer. I hope i killed it, but I will never know. I still get my blood checked every 3 months. I have read articles that say that it may even promote cancer sell growth. so, it is your call. when I read the side effects of the surgery, I deceded to try H2O2.
    So far so good.

    It’s been about 1.5 years since I posted the above.
    PSA’s are still at 1.1. Arthritis has not come back so far either.
    Dr. now tests me 3 times a year rather than 4.
    Dr. now says with my readings if it were he, he wold not have surgery either!
    My wife drank it with me for awhile and for the first 20 years we were together, she wold get up 2 or 3 times a night to urinate. a week after she startred drinking it, she was abel to sleep through the night and although she only drank it for a month or so, she has been able to sleep without having to get up ever since.
    I will never know for sure IF my prostate cancer is gone. But I am 100% sure it got rid of my arthritis pain and stiffness and that alone was well worth it!

    Another update. Last year I ran into an old guy who had PSA’s in the 50’s, I told him about my experiance with H2O2 and he wanted to try it. I tlaked to his grandson yesterday, His Grandpa’s PSA’s are now Normal and He is moving to Texsas to head a transmission shop for GM. He attributes it to the H2O2.
    I switched to inhaling it just before brushing my teeth. Makes breathing easier and teeth cleaner. It also helps prevent colds.
    Last year I found that if I drenk some when a cold started, the cold would be gone in about 4 to 6 hours.
