methyl jasmonate update

There’s really a lot of info on this site so do browse. This supports and extends the info and critical discussion in my two cancer books.  For more information go to

Methyl Jasmonate

(Sadly Steve Martin, author of this article has since died of his cancer)

Steve Martin of writes:

There is increasing evidence that methyl jasmonate, a plant stress hormone, may be the ultimate stand alone treatment for ALL cancers and leukemias. The original research on MJ as a treatment for cancer began in Israel, but now scientists in other countries, including the US and Japan, have begun their own research programs on the anti-cancer properties of this simple compound.

MJ is a simple compound that in crude form is used to prevent the infection of plants by bacteria. In pure form, it is used by cosmetics companies as a scent. Now we know that MJ is a viable treatment for cancer and different forms of leukemia. Eventually, the Israeli scientists who discovered the anti-cancer properties of MJ will receive the Nobel Prize.

The ultimate anti-cancer compound is toxic to cancer but not normal cells. Preferably there would be no side effects such as vomiting and hair loss. Also, it would be nice if this compound was relatively inexpensive and easy to administer. Naturally, this is all wishful thinking. No such compound exists.

Or does it?

We all know that damage to the outer mitochondrial membrane is a primary signal for programmed cell death. However, the initiation of apoptosis AKA programmed cell is a complicated process. It requires the activation of many genes and the inactivation of others. Genetic defects in key gene activity can block the initiation of apoptosis. For example, during periods of oxidative stress or DNA damage the universal tumor suppressor p53 is activated. This protein promotes programmed cell death, thereby inhibiting the development of cancers. Unfortunately, over 50% of all cancers harbor genetic defects in the p53 gene rendering it ineffective in promoting cancer cell death.

Methyl jasmonate selectively kills cancer cells by binding to their mitochondria membranes and inducing damage. This damage initiates apoptosis, BUT it bypasses the normal complicated biochemical steps involved classical programmed cell death. MJ induced cell death is direct. It does not depend on the activation of other genes or the p53 status of the cancer cell.

We now know why MJ is so effective in killing cancer and leukemia cells.

Methyl jasmonate is administered in two different ways.

As an aerosol MJ is added to distilled water in a small personal steamer such as that manufactured by Vicks. It is sold by and large drug stores. 2 grams (2 milliliters) of MJ is added to the surface of the water where it will float as a light oil. The steamer is turned to high and the steam/MJ is inhaled into the lung. Breathe through the mask for 15-20 minutes. This is done every six days. I see no reason why it could not be done more often.

Topically 10 grams of MJ is added to 4 ounces of 70% DMSO gel. sells the gel that we prefer. It is made by Clinic Service Company.

This gel is applied up the nose for the treatment of brain cancer and onto the scrotum for the treatment of prostate cancer. As a more general method of delivery, the gel is applied to the arm pits. The arm pit area contains a high concentration of lymph nodes and lymphatic fluid. This is an excellent portal of topical entry into the circulation. The hair follicles in the arm pits are literally holes in the skin where MJ can be intoduced into the body. But first the hair follicles must be thoroughly washed with a detergent shampoo like Selsen Blue. This shampoo cleans out the crap clogging the follicle shafts. The topical formulations can be applied daily, although I would be careful sticking too much MJ at once up the nose.

Methyl jasmonate is used by Grouppe Kurosawa for our skin cream SkinAlive(R). We will sell 10 grams to others in the US for $180 including priority mail shipping. The total cost is $200 for shipping to Europe. Shipping costs vary for other parts of the world.

It is my opinion that methyl jasmonate is the ONLY stand alone treatment for cancer and leukemia. Unlike other promising anti-cancer products which cannot be obtained by the general public, MJ is made by different manufacturers for sale to the cosmetics industry. It is a tad expensive, but a little goes a long way.

  1. I noticed that this is not the first time at all that you write about the topic. Why have you decided to write about it again?

    I have found something that worked for me. Methyl Jasmonate! It has been around for sometime now, it seems FINALLY much more studies are being done. I took a chance and it WORKED!!! Two sites sell this product they seem to have almost the same domain names.. Check out this Website Methyl-Jasmonate.Com they are located in the USA and they have strict quality control. Forget the company in Australia they get Methy Jamonate from Japan. I would not buy anything from Japan from Crops to Cars seems to be contaminated. GOD BLESS JAPAN! GOD BLESS METHYL JASMONATE Check out Methyl-Jasmonate.Com
