Ann Arbor Health is dedicated to educating the public about the previously suppressed information of medical marijuana. You will be astounded as you read the following! The medical benefits are truly unbelievable. "If the public knew the medicinal benefits of Marijuana they would not be so close minded about its use. There has been a long standing governmental smear campaign about marijuana that kept Americans in the dark as to the help it provides," reveals Senior Director RJ from A2 Health. "Wouldn't it be nice if our family and friends could find relief from the pain and suffering that ailments like cancer will cause. A close friend of mine was diagnosed with terminal cancer. To help with loss of appetite and nausea, she was prescribed the cannabis pills (Marinol) the doctors have available today. Unfortunately she experienced no noticeable effects. At the onset of her illness, she lost a considerable amount of weight, withering down to a mere 90 pounds. In an effort to help, we offered her our medical grade medical cannabis. Not only has she out-lived the doctors estimate of her remaining lifespan, by over a year now but at the time of this article is still fighting for her life. Her appetite has increased, she gained over 15 pounds! She feels better and has a sense of overall well being."
Cancer, the second leading cause of death in the United States, will claim 560,000 lives this year alone, and 1 million new cases will be diagnosed.
The following studies speak for themselves, we are just starting to understand the profound benefits and possibilities. We must ask, is marijuana the ‘wonder drug’ of herbal remedies?
Harvard University researchers found that THC shrinks lung cancer tumors in size and weight by 50%, and THC lead to a 60% decrease in the number of cancer lesions present, in mice studies.
Heavy smokers of marijuana show no increase in lung cancer rates compared to nonsmokers, due to the anti-cancer properties of THC.
Cannabidiol, found in marijuana, has been found to stop aggressive breast cancer from spreading. It's actually the first ever nontoxic substance that stops the cancer from metastasizing.
[note by the diarist: cannabidol is also known as CBD, and has promising medical potential]
The University of Madrid discovered that cannabis kills human brain cancer cells, while leaving normal, healthy brain cells unharmed. A 30 day regimen of cannabis outright killed aggressive brain cancer, while protecting healthy cells.
THC prevents Alzheimer's disease. The Scripps Research Institute in California has found that THC stops the formation "Alzheimer plaques" in the brain BETTER than modern anti-Alzheimer's drugs, "considerably superior" in the words of the published study.
A study sponsored by several Italian universities and health agencies tested cannabis on a panel of several different cancer types, including prostate and colorectal cancer. They found that cannabis is a "potent inhibitor of cancer cell growth" but noted "its use in chemotherapy is limited by its psychotropic activity." In other words, cancer patients aren't getting cannabis out of fear that they may get high.
The really sad thing is that the US government funded a study that showed cannabis fights cancer back 1974, but ignored it. "Researchers at the Medical College of Virginia, who had been funded by the National Institutes of Health to find evidence that marijuana damages the immune system, found instead that THC slowed the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice -- lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia....and prolonged their lives by as much as 36 percent."
The actual study they refer to is here:
