Here’s the direct quote from their just recently updated Frequently Asked Question page about marijuana:
Research studies carried out in mice and rats have shown that cannabinoids have the capability to inhibit tumor development by causing cell death. It also blocks cell development, and obstructs the advancement of blood vessels the growths need to grow. Lab and animal studies have proven to that its possible for cannabinoids to kill cancer cells while securing typical cells.
And it does not stop there! The NCI goes on to list numerous research studies which validate that really statement.
Everybody Ought to Know About This!
In exactly what is rather potentially the most important cancer story ever has been simply sort of half-assedly tossed out there to the public without any major media coverage whatsoever.
Numerous factors can represent that. For one, marijuana has a hard time to be viewed as anything however a laziness-inducing, horrible drug and doesn’t fit the popular story.
Confessing that cannabis really has powerful medical functions would include confessing that our law enforcement sector is horrendously in the wrong.
Of all the drug arrests made in between 2001 and 2010, 88% were for cannabis possession. The DEA still categorizes marijuana as a Schedule 1 compound, a step above cocaine.
Cancer is a $100 billion a year industry.
That number is expected to rise to $147 billion by 2018.
Can you picture what would take place to major pharmaceutical business and their federal government backers if everyone discovered that a simple herb you can grow in your backyard (not that we’re recommending you do that– follow the law, people) might treat cancer for a portion of the cost of pharmaceuticals.
