‘I am a biochemist, and have specialised in the relation of diet to health for 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, and we have

accumulated a number of favourable case histories.

Here are a few examples.

Case No. 1,

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 who suffered from cancer of the bladder for

16 years. After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement,

he went on asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumour

had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

Case No. 3,

a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971 he 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 back at his regular business routine.

Case No. 4,

a woman who was troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She finally developed

different skin cancers which were diagnosed by a skin specialist as advanced. Within 3

months after starting on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin looked fine and

no more skin lesions.

This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease, which

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.

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.

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, and therefore canned asparagus

is just as good as fresh. I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant

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, and store in the refrigerator.

Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening.

Patients usually show some improvement in from 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 I 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 specialises 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 normaliser. 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.
