Alternative Treatment of Prostate Cancer- Oregano Spice Can Help
A recent submission to six scientific societies in the United States reveals that a herb that is commonly used as spice for Italian cuisines can reduce the risk of prostate cancer. This revelation followed the research conducted on the numbers of Italian men and American men that have developed the disease.
It was discovered that Italian men have lower rate of cancer of the prostate than men in the United States. One major factor responsible for this difference is that Italian men do consume Oregano, which is usually used as spices in Pizzas. The following are more details on this presentation:
Italian men have a lower incidence of prostate cancer when compared to men in the United States. And a recent study by Long Island University researchers may have discovered part of their secret in a common spice they frequently consume—oregano.
The results of the study were presented at the Experimental Biology 2012 poster session on Tuesday, April 24, 2012. Experimental Biology is an annual gathering of six scientific societies—American Association of Anatomists (AAA), American Physiological Society (APS), American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP), American Society for Nutrition (ASN) and the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET).
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among American men and the second leading cause of cancer death. According to the latest statistics available from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control more than 29,000 men died of prostate cancer in 2007. The current treatment options for patients—surgery, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy and vaccine therapy—all involve significant risks and side effects.
Oregano is typically associated with Italian cuisine and a common spice added to pizza seasoning. For thousands of years oregano has been prized as a medicinal herb by holistic healers. Hippocrates, a Greek physician and the father of Western medicine, used it for stomach and respiratory ailments. Benedictine healer and herbalist Hildegard of Bingen purportedly used oregano for female and respiratory problems. The Greeks and Romans used oregano medicinally for aching muscles and spider bites.
Modern science has discovered that oregano possesses an abundance of therapeutic qualities, including antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. Oregano essential oil is used for wart removal, arthritis, respiratory infections and as a digestive aid. The primary active compound of oregano is carvacrol. Click here to read the full extract.
The link of Oregano with prostate cancer is nothing short of a breakthrough. This is an alternative medication and it can work well to prevent cancer of the prostate. It is my opinion that this herb, when included among other forms of prostate cancer treatments, could be more effective with fewer side effects. For now, as more research is being carried out on this herb, there is hope that the medicinal properties of this herb would be extracted to treat cancer in the prostate cells.
Finally, the Oregano – prostate cancer theory provides support for other theories like those linking the eating of Pizza with the prevention of cancer of the prostate.
