Chinese herb fights tumours
The herb, thunder god vine (lei gong teng), is a Chinese herb generally used for inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. But researchers from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine have found that it can also stop tumour growth. Its active ingredient is triptolide. Researcher Jun Liu, professor of pharmacology and molecular sciences found that low doses of thunder god vine blocked cell growth in 60 different types of cancer, and even killed off some cancers in laboratory conditions.

However, Europeans may have to find sources in Asia as new laws are coming into effect the effect of which will be to reduce access to many herbs. Those interested in getting hold of this herb might wish to contact Chris Teo in Penang www.cacare.com
