Barb (operacat), here are the references to cancer in the FAQ. I am sorry
that I do not have the stamina to pull out all of them for you. Look
through them and see if there are any that you specifically want to see and
I will send them to you. They are of course available on-line from the FAQ.
I hope your Hubby gets better.

Searching for: cancer
kombucha_faq_part01a.txt(92): * Green Tea: Skips the oxidizing step. It has a more delicate taste and is light golden-green in colour. Green tea, a staple of the Orient, is gaining popularity in the US due in part to recent
scientific studies linking green tea drinking with reduced cancer risk. kombucha_faq_part01a.txt(170): The American Cancer Society’s Guidelines on Diet, Nutrition and Cancer state there is no indication that caffeine is a
risk factor in human cancer and the National Academy of Sciences’ National Research Council reports there is no convincing evidence relating caffeine to any type of cancer. [17, 18]
kombucha_faq_part01a.txt(186): A large case-control study conducted by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in 1986, involving more than 3,000 women, showed no evidence of an association between caffeine intake and benign
tumor, fibrocystic breast disease or breast tenderness. [35] Both the NCI and the AMA Council on Scientific Affairs have stated there is no association between caffeine intake and fibrocystic breast disease. [37,26]
The original findings suggesting such a relationship have never been corroborated.
kombucha_faq_part01c.txt(92): Persons at risk for severe cryptosporidiosis include persons with AIDS, persons who have cancer or organ or bone marrow transplants who are taking drugs to that weaken the immune system and
persons who are born with genetically weakened immune systems.

kombucha_faq_part01f.txt(1221): * American Cancer Society’s Medical and Scientific Committee. Guidelines on diet, nutrition, and cancer CA-A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, 41 (6):334-338, 1991 (18)
kombucha_faq_part01f.txt(1289): 7. Aflatoxin. A fungal toxin which is a powerful liver carcinogen. It is produced by Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus, which grow easily on beans, grain, and peanuts which are
inappropriately stored in warm, humid conditions. The presence of aflatoxins in contaminated food supplies is thought to contribute to the high levels of liver cancer in undeveloped and developing countries.

kombucha_faq_part02.txt(57): * Cancer of the Kidney
kombucha_faq_part02.txt(189): 10. CANCER OF THE KIDNEY
kombucha_faq_part02.txt(190): I must share a success story with you that I feel KT has been a part of. In April of last year I was informed I had kidney cancer that had invaded the vena cava and was at the entrance of the
heart. Surgery took place immediately and a double operation was performed. Due to the size and nature of the cancer, it required open heart surgery and removal of the right kidney. Needless to say, it was frightening. One
of the things I did to cope with it was research cancer. We all hear so much about it, but really know little about it until it strikes home. During my research, I ran across at letter from Canada that had been posted
by a lady by the name of Victoria. She mentioned Kombucha tea in her story of her father’s cure. I had never heard of it before. Since we get desperate when we do not where the cancer is and where it will surface
next, I decided to try Kombucha in addition to my regular visits to the doctor–CT scans, Xrays and blood tests—on a 3 month cycle. This week was my 3 visit to the doctor. He is amazed how quickly my blood was restored to
normal. There have been no signs of the cancer metastasizing yet. Matter-of-fact, they do not want to see me until June. We are the happiest people in Pennsylvania right now. Does it mean I am cured? No. Could it
come back? We all know there is that possibility. Did Kombucha do it alone? I doubt it. Prayer and a healthy lifestyle makes a difference also. But, considering I am not on any medication or chemotherapy, I sincerely feel KT
has contributed greatly to my condition. My wife and daughter are now on it. My doubting older sister, although a bit skeptic, has started it. (I believe the disappearance of my grays along with the intestinal benefits I
have realized has convinced her). Enough for now. I have learned much from all the web pages, this digest, etc., about KT. I am using it successfully in cold Pittsburgh and we are enjoying it more each day. Thanks to all of you.
kombucha_faq_part02.txt(192): Hi, Colleen. My computer crashed a few weeks ago so I have no record of my testimonial I submitted in January. However, I continue to take Kombucha although my kidney cancer has recurred and I am in the midst of IL-2 treatment at the Pgh Cancer Inst. Kombucha was the first of many holistic type remedies I have been using. It continues to prove beneficial to my intestinal system even if it did not prevent the
cancer from recurring. During my first week of IV treatments, I continued to take at least 6 oz of Kombucha a day in the hospital. I also am using essiac in addition to a number of herbs and supplements. If you should have
any additional questions/concerns, please let me know. kombucha_faq_part02.txt(195): Authors note: John explained to me that “IL-2” means interleukin-2. Unlike chemotherapy, the biological agents such as interleukin and interferon are used to enhance your immune system to the degree that it attacks the cancer and hopefully destroys it.
kombucha_faq_part02.txt(209): By the way, we got our Kombucha from a former co-worker (girlfriend). This Kombucha was generations before given to a desperately ill father of another co-worker (this is third-person stuff, –
I never met the ill person). He suffered from a virulent cancer and was pronounced terminal, and sent home to die. His son brought home a Kombucha, father is back at work. Cancer is not in remission, cancer is no longer
detectable in the man’s body. Man has been examined by his doctors, and was asked to visit another hospital for confirmation.kombucha_faq_part02.txt(336): Even my nephews’ pet rat, who was riddled with cancer was able to survive for about nine months longer than the vet predicted. My sister put the juice into his water, his tumors crusted up and fell off, his hair grew back thick and shiny and he was fine. When she stopped the juice for a few weeks, the tumors grew back. She put him back on the tea and they fell off again. The rat lived far longer than expected
and if he’d drunken the tea from the start, then he might never have contracted the cancer. Same goes for humans. It’s been drunken as a preventative tonic in rural communities around the world for over 2,000 years, so this “fad” is here to stay.
kombucha_faq_part03.txt(123): * Cadminum: Bronchitis; anemia; gastrointestinal upsets and cancer in rats.
kombucha_faq_part03.txt(137): * Lead:Damage to nervous system, kidneys, reproductive system; cancer in rats.
kombucha_faq_part05.txt(176): 1. Make tea in the ordinary way. Per litre (quart ) of water, infuse 2 teaspoonfuls (about 5 g = 0.2 oz) of black or green tea in freshly boiled water. You may also use tea bags. Let the tea
leaves “soak” for 15 minutes. Green tea comes from the same plant as black tea and is distinguished from it principally by the way it is processed: it is not fermented. Japanese doctors found out that green tea prevents cancer
growth. I would suggest to use green tea for the Kombucha beverage. If you don’t want to use black or green tea you can also use herbal teas.
kombucha_faq_part05.txt(226): * 4 black (Lipton is okay) or green tea bags. (I personally like green tea because it might have anti- cancer properties). Don’t worry about the caffeine, there’s almost none left at the end of the fermentation process.
kombucha_faq_part06.txt(531): Hauser, S.P. 1990. Dr. Sklenar’s kombucha mushroom infusion-a biological cancer therapy. Schweiz Rundsch. Med. Prax. 79, 243-246.kombucha_faq_part06.txt(579): Scientific exploration of the fungus commenced in the 1950s with the Moscow Bacteriological Institute (as part of their research project on the investigation of cancer throughout the country).They discovered that it was not as initially thought, a single
organism but a symbiotic colony of several bacteria and yeasts with highly complex and sophisticated metabolic pathways. They isolated the following organisms: Bacterium xylinum, Bacterium xylinoides, Bacterium gluconicum, Saccharomyces ludwigii, Saccharomyces apiculatus varieties, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Acetobacter ketogenum, Torula varieties, Pichia fermantans and other yeasts. This group of organisms shows a distinct antibiotic effect through the presence of usnic acid which is present in some lichens. There is also evidence that usnic acid may deactivate certain groups of viruses
kombucha_faq_part06.txt(581): In 1951, the “Central Oncological Research Unit” and the “Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow” statistically analyzed the incidence of cancer throughout all the cities and districts of
the USSR. It follows that any particular area with a low incidence of cancer deserved special scrutiny from the research teams. In the research program, data was collated on environmental conditions and the everyday
habits of the people were closely examined for any possible clues about their extremely high resistance to cancer.
kombucha_faq_part06.txt(584): Living conditions, sleeping, eating and drinking patterns were investigated. Ethnic differences were taken note of together with genetic origins of all the inhabitants. Age was also considered and despite the thorough analysis of numerous factors, the research teams lead by Dr. Molodyev and Dr. Grigoriev were unable to discern any appreciable differences to other districts in the USSR that displayed a higher cancer rate which was closer to the national average.kombucha_faq_part06.txt(586): On questioning where she had obtained the
fungus from, the woman said “that travelers had brought it with them from China many centuries ago. It was thought that the Chinese had originally obtained it from the Japanese.” To further substantiate the possibility
that there may be some connection between drinking “Tea Kwass” and a very low cancer rate, Dr. Grigoriev in Beresniki also found that every household in the region possessed the fungus and drank large quantities of the
ferment each day.
kombucha_faq_part06.txt(587): CANCER SUFFERERS AND LACTIC ACIDkombucha_faq_part06.txt(588): Cancer patients rarely exhibit the L-lactic acid (+) component in their connective tissues. If present in sufficient
quantities, it is thought that cancer may not develop. When lactic acid is deficient then cellular respiration starts to fail and consequently there will be a build up of D-lactic (-) in the tissue. If both of these types of lactic acid exist in balanced proportions in the tissues then cancer may be the outcome.kombucha_faq_part06.txt(596): Over thirty years later in 1961, Dr. Valentin Koehler wrote in the periodical “Medical Practice” about the medical
effects of glucuronic acid and how that this natural method was giving courage to cancer patients. This sparked off a debate about the existence of the Kombucha culture and Dr. Koehler was encouraged with the results
that he was observing in his patients. He considered that in the long term, Kombucha may well increase the overall performance of the immune system and boost interferon production. It seems to be that around the late 1950’s and
early 1960’s that the scientific community became aware of the cancer healing properties of the fungus.
kombucha_faq_part06.txt(598): The medical doctor, Dr. Rudolf Sklenar of Lich, Oberhessen, reported in 1964 in the periodical “Experiential Healing Science” about his methods of diagnosis and therapy successes: “An
outstanding natural remedy is the mushroom beverage named Combucha, which acts detoxifying in every regard and which dissolves microorganisms as well as cholesterol.” Dr. Sklenar had developed a biologic cancer therapy in
which Combucha, as well as other biologic remedies such as Coli-preparations, held an important place for the sanitation of the intestinal flora.
kombucha_faq_part06.txt(599): In a small publication of 8 pages, titled “Cancer Diagnosis Based on Blood and the Treatment of Cancer, Pre-cancerous Conditions, and other Metabolic Diseases with Kombucha and
Coli-Preparations,” Dr. Sklenar reports that “vitamins, lactic acids and glucuronic acid are (viruses, bacteria, fungi) and to the dissolution of waste matter and toxic deposits (uric acid, cholesterol, etc.,) Kombucha
effects an outstanding detoxification of the organism.Through enjoying this beverage there is, additionally, a noticeable invigoration of the entire glandular system and enhancement of the metabolism.” Dr. Sklenar reports
“that he was able to treat successfully with the mushroom-tea: gout, rheumatism, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, dysbacteria, constipation, impotence, nonspecific draining, obesity, furunculosis, kidney stones,
cholesterol, cancer and especially its early stages, etc.”
kombucha_faq_part06.txt(601): A few years later in 1964, in the publication “Cancer diagnosis based on Blood and the Treatment of Cancer, Pre-cancerous Conditions, and other Metabolic Diseases with Kombucha and
Coli-Preparations” Dr. Rudolph Sklenar of Oberhessen concludes that “it is able to produce an outstanding detoxification of the organism. Additionally, the glands are revitalized and the metabolism is considerably
enhanced. For cancer patients, this detoxification process that is triggered by the ingestion of glucuronic acid is good news indeed, for many medical specialists feel that there is a direct link between the overall toxicity of the body and the potential for the onset of tumors and other malignant growths.”
kombucha_faq_part06.txt(603): Dr. Rudof Sklenar of Oberhessen reported in the periodical “Experiential Healing Science” about his various techniques of diagnosis and therapy. The tea fungus is mentioned as an outstanding
remedy which he considered to be a powerful agent for detoxifying the human body since it dissolves micro-organisms and also cholesterol. Some of his specific cancer treatments were based on the use of fermented tea for the balancing of intestinal flora. With the tea fungus he successfully treated gout, rheumatic conditions, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, dysbacteria, constipation, impotence, non-specific draining, obesity, furunculosis,
kidney stones, cholesterol and finally cancer in the early stages of detection.
kombucha_faq_part06.txt(607): “In the Netherlands, A J Lodesijkx of Ermelo – a natural healing specialist – describes the health-giving benefits of the fungus in his book “Life Without Cancer”. He concludes that “the
Kombucha fungus has strongly antiseptic properties. It purifies the glandular system and promotes the elimination and neutralization of uric acid.” He concludes that “the fermented beverage is an excellent remedy for
gout, rheumatism, arthritis, kidney stones, intestinal dysbacteria and early stages of cancer due to its influence on disease causing endobionts. (Red corpuscles are eliminated by these endobionts when the pH of the blood
shifts unfavorably to the alkaline side.) Kombucha is considered to be unique in that it actively re-balances the blood pH and thus helps to counter any disease processes that are in operation.”
