“This book tells me everything. Why didn’t my doctor tell me this?”- Rev. Bill Newbern



Avemar (apparently named after Ave Maria) is gaining a name as an adjunctive anti-cancer therapy. This is a smart move on the part of the manufacturers who don’t want to be tarred with the ‘alternative’ label – however the fact remains that Avemar has measurable (indeed measured – by clinical research) anti-cancer effects. It is also true that Avemar is really nothing more than wheat germ extract that has been through a fermentation process – ie is not too different, as Vincent Gammill says, from German wheat beer. So if you don’t want to buy Avemar – you can follow Vincent’s instructions here:

Use  wheat germ. Fermentation is done with baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae).
This type of yeast is commercially available. The period of
fermentation varies: about 10-24 hours, preferably 15-20 hours or about
18 hours. The temperature of the fermentation should be about C. preferably about C. The weight ratio of the wheat germ and the yeast is 4:1-2:1, preferably about 3:1, the weight ratio of
the dry matter and water is 1:6-1:12, preferably about 1:9.

And there you have it – all (or most) of the benefits of Avemar without the cost.
