Causes of Cancer
"Environmental chemicals, substances
that are foreign to the body or xenobiotics (including those found in cigarette
smoke and in food), have been linked to the causation of a majority of
human cancers. Such cancer-causing chemicals (carcinogens) are believed
to induce cancer by a two-stage process, namely initiation and promotion.
These chemical substances are thought
to be activated to potentially noxious intermediate forms by certain
enzymes which catalyze the oxidation of these chemicals. The intermediate
forms bind firmly and irreversibly to DNA, the genetic material of a target
cell, leading to certain changes in DNA.
These mutations passed on to other
cells when the original cell divides. This sets off the process of initiation.
Once cancer is initiated, it can be promoted by a number of factors, such
as: other potentially toxic chemicals, fats, reactive oxygen species (ROS)
including free radicals and others.
We are equippped with a wide range
of antioxidant defense systems, including the contribution of dietary antioxidants
(both vitamin and nonvitamin antioxidant nutrients) in order to defend
against ROS." (Pycnogenol, The Super Protector Nutrient, Richard

Flavonoids have cancer-preventing
"Pycnogenol (pronounced pick-nah-geh-nol)
is a patented blend of flavonoids, primarily bioflavonoids, found in fruits,
vegetables and other plants. It works synergystically with Vitamin C, acting
as a "helpmate" and enhancing its activity."
"You may recall how enzymes
may be involved in converting cancer causing chemicals to active forms
in the cells which can initiate cancer. Flavonoids can interfere with the
activity of these enzymes thus providing an ameliorative effect.
Certain flavonoids also abolish
tumor promotion mediated by tumor promoters. In these cases the flavonoids'
effects could be due to its influence on key enzymes as well as interference
with free-radical production caused by the promoters."
be useful in cancer treatment
"In addition to their cancer-preventing
effect, flavonoids can also be useful in the treatment of fully
progressed cancers. Several studies showed that dietary administration
of certain flavonoids significantly halted the growth of cancers in laboratory
Pycnogenol is a
powerful antioxidant radical scavenger
In these studies, cells from human
tumors were allowed to grow in the animals and the effect of administration
of the flavonoid on the growth of the cancer cells was evaluated. Certain
flavonoids also were effective in stopping the spread of tumors (metastis)
"Studies conducted in the laboratory
of Dr. Kandaswana indicate that certain flavonoids, orally administered
to rats can induce hepatic enzymes that are involved in the metabolic transformation
of certain carcinogens. Furthermore, liver preparations prepared from animals
that were fed food flavonoids showed a reduced capacity to convert chemical
carcinogens to their active forms.
In other studies, we implanted tumor
cells derived from human pharynx, from several cancers including: cancer
of the pharynx, breast cancer, colon cancer, leukemia, brain cancer (gliosarcoma)
and others." (Pycnogenol, The Super Protector Nutrient,

Pycnogenol is a powerful antioxidant
radical scavenger and is a prime candidate for further studies in cancer
prevention and therapy. This complex contains proanthocyanidins formed
from catechin and epicatechin units. Certain catechin derivatives
have recently been shown to have potent anticancer effects in experimental
"As an antioxidant, Pycnogenol,
a blend of special bioflavonoids, reduces free radical-caused tissue damage
many times more effective than vitamin E, potentiates the health giving
effects of vitamin C, and protects brain and nerve tissue with its nearly
unique ability to penetrate the blood brain barrier.
It also reduces inflammation and
improves circulation, both relieving the distresses of arthritis, diabetes
and stroke and promoting prevention of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
And its ability to bond to collagen promotes renewed youthfulness , flexibility
and body integrity..." (The New Superantioxidant-Plus, Keats Publishing,1992.)
"The safety of Pycnogenol has
been reviewed in depth by Dr. Peter Rohdewald of the Pharmacology Institute
of the University of Munster in Germany during the 1990 International Pycnogenol
Symposium in Bordeaux. Dr. Rohdewald stated Pycnogenol is a safe natural
product with no adverse side effects whatsoever." (The New Superantioxidant-Plus,
"Although we have traced the
history of Pycnogenol through more than 450 years, and although it has
been used for decades, it seems destined to wider popularity and utility
as researchers understand more about it. We have just scratched the surface."

Shark liver oil, how can it help?
For many years, scientists thought
the secret to the shark's remarkable immune system was to be found in its
cartilage. Today it is known that the shark's liver is the principal source
of its incredible immunity.
"Alkyglycerol, or AKG, is a
family of compounds that play a vital part in the production and stimulation
of white blood cells. It is found in the freshwater fish, cows, sheep and
mothers milk--AKGs are one of the active substances that give breast
fed babies crucial protection against infection until the infants own
immune systems are fully developed. But it is the liver of the deep-water
shark that AKGs are found in greater concentration than any other place
on earth." (Shark Liver Oil Nature's Amazing Healer, Neil Solomon,
M.D., Ph.D., Richard Passwater, Ph.D., Ingemar Joelsson, M.D., Ph.D., Kensington
Immune System and AKGs
"According to Dr. Joelsson,
it is important to note that AKGs normalize the bone-marrow function. They
do not overstimulate. AKGs also have been shown to elevate the production
of white blood cells, called macrophages, which consume yeast and viruses.
This result makes AKGs effective as general strengtheners of the immune
Shark liver oil, rich in AKGs, acts
as a natural booster of the bodys immune system. Adding shark liver oil
to the diet, as a food supplement, not a drug, helps increase general well-being,
stave off common viruses and infections, and battle more serious diseases,
thereby improving the quality of life overall.
AKG's improve the
body's immune defense system
Supplementing ones diet with AKGs,
in the form of shark liver oil capsules, seems to elevate the nonspecific
immune response by causing an increase in the level of white blood cells
that work for the bodys immune system. Enhanced immunoreactivity
is important for resisting colds, the flu, and common infections, and for
chronic immune-related conditions such as asthma, allergies, cancer
and perhaps even AIDS." (Shark Liver Oil Nature's Amazing Healer,
Neil Solomon, M.D., Ph.D., Richard Passwater, Ph.D., Ingemar Joelsson,
M.D., Ph.D., Kensington Health, 1997)
Experiments in humans and animals have shown that Alkylglycerols
improve the body's immune defense mechanism. In fact, Astrid Brohult, M.D.
stated Alkylglycerols help "reduce immune responses to foreign substances".
AKGs as Antioxidants
"There are many different types of antioxidants.
All have been used in varying dosages to eliminat oxidizing free radicals,
which are produced from air and water pollution, smog, ozone, insecticides,
normal human metabolism, strenuous exercise and much else. Free radicals.
which attack the cells of the body and cause overy sixty chronic illnesses,
are a major factor in aging. The traditional antioxidants are most effective
in scavenging free radicals outside of cells. Very few of them are able
to penetrate the cell membrane.
According to Dr. Ingemar Joelsson, the AKGs found in
the shark liver oil of the Greenland Shark have demonstrated a singularity
in this respect. He believes that as antioxidants, these AKGs are uniquely
effective in attacking and eliminating those free radicals which have penetrated
cell membranes and tissues, where they are most dangerous.
Once inside, they are likely to cause cellular structural
damage and to leave the cells weakened and vulnerable to invading germs,
including the AIDS virus. When the DNA inside the cell is damaged by these
free radicals, cancer can result." (Shark Liver Oil Nature's Amazing
Healer, Neil Solomon, M.D., Ph.D., Richard Passwater, Ph.D., Ingemar Joelsson,
M.D., Ph.D., Kensington Health, 1997)
Chemotherapy and AKGs
"More than seventy years of research, in both Japan
and Europe, have yielded remarkable results. For example, scientists have
found that giving cancer patients small dosages of AKGs before, during
and after radiation treatment reduces the sharp and dangerous drop in white
blood cells (leukopenia) which is a common side effect of the treatment.
AKGs are also known to reduce the drop in white blood
cell count that accompanies chemotherapy. Given that white blood cells
play a key role in preventing infection and promoting healing in humans,
these results are of great importance."(Shark Liver Oil Nature's
Amazing Healer, Neil Solomon, M.D., Ph.D., Richard Passwater, Ph.D., Ingemar
Joelsson, M.D., Ph.D., Kensington Health, 1997)
Safety of Shark liver oil
Perhaps most exciting is the fact that AKGs have been
shown to cause no significant negative side effects." (Shark Liver
Oil Nature's Amazing Healer, Neil Solomon, M.D., Ph.D., Richard Passwater,

Not all Shark Liver Oil are created equal
Not all Shark Liver Oil are created equal... Look for
a product that contains the highest percentage (35%) of Alkylglycerols
(glyceryl ether lipids only) available. That is almost double the percentage
of other liquid products on the market. A product that is processed to
remove any significant amount of Vitamins A and D. Look for a product that
is environmentally responsible, not relying on any one species of shark.
A product that is approved by the Scandanavian Shark Association.
Not all Pycnogenol® is created equal... The excipients,
flow agents, and binders used in preparing Pycnogenol® tablets make
all the difference in how it is absorbed by the body. Many companies use
low quality cellulose to hold the tablets together, and excipients that
make the Pycnogenol® practically non-absorbable.
A formulation that enhances rather than detracts from
the body's ability to absorb the Pycnogenol® is the difference felt
by people trying Pycnogenol®. Many brands in North America test only
10% or 12% bio-available, and none of the other brands test over 30% bio-available.
Special formulation enables 95% absorption
Our exclusive proprietory formulation (protected with
a second patent) enhances rather than detracts from the body's ability
to absorb the Pycnogenol® (this is bioavailability). Each 20mg tablet
is 95% bio-available.
"The special formulation of this Pycnogenol®
compound has been proven to bring amazing results in numerous clinical
conditions. There are now many companies in the United States now selling
Pycnogenol® and many others now illegally infringing on the registered
trademarked name, selling grape seed extract compounds and mixing it with
pine bark extract.
There has been no scientific research done on these extracts
that can compare with the research done on Pycnogenol®. The results
that I have had with this product, are from only one company, and it has
the compound with the special formulation that Charles Haimoff (president
of Horphag Research Ltd., the Pycnogenol® patent owner) has granted
them exclusively." -Dr. W. LaMar Rosquist, Aging Long Life & Better
