The Cervical Cancer Vaccine may Not Work, but Broccoli Does

November 12th, 2009 · 7 Comments

My two favorites for lowering excess estrogen are:



Calcium D Glucarate.

Also Velvet Deer Antler has said to be great at hormone balancer as well but I have not researched it so you should do your own and Symplex F looks interesting as well.

From Natural News:

The Cervical Cancer Vaccine may Not Work, but Broccoli Does
(NaturalNews) Gardasil, a vaccine designed to prevent cervical cancer in women, has recently been the target of debate about its safety and efficacy. While young girls have been dying and key researchers are saying the vaccine doesn’t work, there are dozens of studies using natural compounds in broccoli that DO work to not only PREVENT but possibly TREAT cervical cancer as well.

Cervical cancer is very slow growing and is generally treatable with minor interventions when caught early; hence, pap smears have been recommended as a routine part of an annual physical exam for decades. But a paradigm shift in cervical cancer thought occurred in 1984 when it was discovered that the Human Papilloma Virus causes cervical cancer. Drug researchers immediately went to work on a vaccine and their dream came true when Gardasil, the first cervical cancer vaccine, was released in 2006. A disease mostly controlled with routine screenings became the new public health threat that immediately required mandatory vaccinations for every young woman in the US, whether at risk or not.

But while new evidence is coming to light that young women are suffering serious health effects and even death from a vaccine that may not even do what it is intended to do, readily available strategies for prevention of cervical cancer are being completely overlooked. Broccoli and other ‘Brassicas’ like cabbage and Brussels sprouts have long been touted as health foods- and with good reason. Antioxidants and anticancer agents are continually being isolated from this family of vegetables, making them some of the biggest health powerhouses available. One particular compound in broccoli called Indole-3-Carbinol, also called I3C, has been isolated and studied for over 2 decades for its anti-cancer properties.

“Studies increasingly indicate that dietary
indole-3-carbinol (I3C) prevents the development of
estrogen-enhanced cancers including breast,
endometrial and cervical cancers”
‘Indole-3-Carbinol Is a Negative Regulator of Estrogen’

I3C’s chemoprotective properties are unquestioned in the many animal and laboratory studies that have been done. And with only two adverse reactions having ever been reported, human studies have proven it to have an astonishingly good safety profile. The research using I3C against cervical cancer is extremely promising as well. In one double-blind placebo controlled trial, a full one-half of women with biopsy-proven early stage cervical cancer had COMPLETE REGRESSION of their cancer where NONE in the control group did. That means that simply by supplementing once daily with I3C, 50% of these women’s cancers were completely reversed. In addition, animal studies not ONLY show that supplementation with I3C can prevent cervical cancer in the animals taking it, but it ALSO prevents cervical cancer in their offspring!

“Addition of chemoprotective agents to the maternal diet
during pregnancy and nursing may be an effective new approach
in reducing the incidence of cancers in children and young adults.”
‘Indole-3-carbinol in the maternal diet provides chemoprotection
for the fetus against transplacental carcinogenesis’

The benefits of I3C don’t stop there, though; other studies have shown that it can help to prevent and treat breast, endometrial, vulvar, skin and prostate cancers as well. But even while I3C is being ignored as a natural supplement, drug researchers are feverishly attempting to reproduce its properties in the lab in order to create a patentable synthetic anticancer agent. In the study ‘A potent indole-3-carbinol-derived Antitumor agent’ , the researchers called its anticancer effects “weak” and therefore they are “…exploiting indole-3-carbinol to develop potent antitumor agents”. But “weak” is not the first word that comes to mind when discussing this natural substance that reduces cancer by:

Lowering ‘bad’ estrogen levels,
Killing cancer cells directly,
Inhibiting the viruses associated with these cancers and
Strengthening the immune system.

Like most natural substances, doctors’ offices and medical centers are ignoring this research and, instead, are having teenage girls line up for a shot with a nebulous safety profile that may not even be effective. Yet, it would be far safer, less expensive and likely more effective if public health campaigns were directed at teaching women the benefits of eating foods like broccoli and cabbage that are naturally rich in anticancer compounds like I3C.

    Hi, I'm a bit confused by the article. I'm 29, vegetarian all of my life (so are my parents) and I am currently being treated for cervical cancer. Broccolli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, etc have been and continues to be a big part of my diet. I contracted HPV from my partner and I have had some serious issues dealing with the stigma of having HPV – it seems that a lot of people think that it is the result of being promiscuous when in my case this is certainly not true. Anyway, I just want to know your thoughts – am I just really unlucky? Because according to this article my diet should have provided me with sufficient protection so that I wouldn't be going through this horrible process right now.

    Hi Karen:
    You should read my “girls corner” at the top of the page to the right about how to get rid of HPV. You need to take very high doses of DIM, not just eat broccoli. Bio Response is great. Check it out!

    Hi Bueller,
    Thanks for this post.
    I would like to link it to my cancer blog.

    I have been prescribed IC3 as well as loads of broccoli as part of my anti-cancer diet. I try to eat it raw but cant really stomach it so it goes into my green smoothies.

    Im sorry to hear this. I had stage 1a2 cervical cancer.
    I had a lot of flak from people regarding it being a 'promiscuous disease'.
    I think my diet and stress , as well as sometime in my life contracting HPV has dealt me cancer. My stress levels prior to getting cancer was high up as well as being highly deficient after being on the OC for so long.
    please visit my blog and let me know what you think.

    Hi I forgot to say, thank you for your advice – I'm willing to try anything at the moment. It's been pretty horrible dealing with this both physically and emotionally – luckily I have a great supportive partner!

    I see that you recommend Bioresponse. I was almost about to try Papillex. Have you heard anything about this product. Do you think that Bioresponse might be better?

    Hi. I really can't say!

    Hi Natalie,
    I tried using 3 products together and had good results (got rid of cervical dysplasia in 3 months, after over 2 years of it persisting). I used DIM, Papillex, and Vag Pack suppositories from a company called Wise Woman's Herbals. I also changed my diet to what Bueller recommends and took up yoga practice for stress relief.
