We are all about EMPOWERMENT, not ENTITLEMENT!

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. Arthur Schopenhauer    German philosopher (1788 - 1860)

When I was in the USN I was  stationed in Key West , FL. I worked at the clinic at  Naval Air Station on  Big Coppitt Key just a few  mile north of Key West . The hospital at Key  West was for out patient only for retired armed forces personnel that  lived in the area. If you needed to be hospitalized you were sent to Homestead  AFB Florida. I had the day off and just went inside the hospital( Corpman barracks were next to hospital). There was a retired navy man that worked in the lab and he was very interesting gentleman to talk with. He was a  retired biochemist from the USN. he asked me what was going on that day  and I said I had the day off. I wish I was working as the crew on today was taking a sailor to Homestead as he had a very bad kidney infection. Now this elderly gent told me the man should have eaten more  asparagus  and he wouldn't have that problem. I asked why? I'll never forget him saying do you eat asparagus and I said yes, I love them. He replied you notice how your urine stinks after eating asparagus? I said well I never thought it was what I ate but yes it does have a pungent odor. It is because it is detoxifying your body of harmful chemicals!!! This was back in 1986 when I was stationed there and to read this email again I  had to  share this story...Eat more asparagus my friends.
Asparagus -- Who knew?
My  Mom had been taking the  full-stalk canned styleasparagus, pureed it and took 4  tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons  later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is on  chemo pills for Stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area  and her cancer  cell count went from 386 down to 125 as  of this past week.
Her oncologist said she will not  need to see him  for 3 months.
Several years ago I met a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me  a copy of an article, entitled "Asparagus For Cancer"  printed in the Cancer News Journal, December  1979. I will share it here, just as it was shared with me: I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to  health or over 50 years.  Several years ago, I learned of  the discovery of Richard R.  Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked with him on his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable case histories.
Here are a  few examples:
Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the  lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated.  Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors  were unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he  was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise
Case No. 2, A successful  businessman, 68 years old, suffered from cancer of the  bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments,  including radiation without improvement, he began  taking asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations  revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.
Case No. 3, On March 5th 1971, a man who had lung cancer was put on the operating  table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that  it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. On April 5th he heard  about the Asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed that all signs  of the  cancer had disappeared. He is now back at his regular business routine.
Case No. 4, A woman had been troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She developed different skin cancers which were  diagnosed by the acting specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after beginning asparagus therapy,  the skin specialist said her skin looked fine with no more  skin lesions. This woman reported that the  asparagus therapy also cured her kidney  disease, which had started in 1949. She  had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an  inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She  attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus treatment.
I  was not surprised at this result as`The elements of materia medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the University of Pennsylvania,  stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for  kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates!
We  would have other case histories  but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am therefore  appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us  to gather a large number of case histories that will  overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.
For the treatment, asparagus  should be cooked before using. Fresh or canned  asparagus can be used. I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely,  and I am satisfied  that these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives.
Place the cooked asparagus in a  blender and liquefy to make a puree . Store in the refrigerator. Give the  patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily,  morning and evening.
Patients usually show some  improvement in 2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink.
This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can  do no harm and may be needed in some cases.
As  a biochemist I am convinced of  the old saying that 'what cures can prevent.' Based on this theory, my  wife and have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and  with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as part of our regular checkups . The  last blood  survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed  substantial improvements in all categories  over the last one, and we  can attribute these  improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink. As a  biochemist , I have made an extensive study of all aspects of  cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result, I am  convinced that asparagus fits in better with the  latest theories about cancer.
Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones , which are believed to be  active in controlling cell growth. For that reason, I  believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance  that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic. In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus  used as we suggest, is a harmless substance. The FDA  cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you  much good. It has been reported by the US National  Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested  food containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.
Just a side note... In case you  are wondering why this has not been made public, there is no profit in curing cancer!
