Yes. Actually I learned of cyclopmaine in the 'New What's New' section of JH. its a veratrum alkaloid from the False Hellebore plant. So named b/c pregnant cows that ate it gave birth to cycloptic calves. But the Good News is that it prevents not only brain structures but pancreas development and thus stops pancreatic cancer in its tracks. ' too new to be sure yet' but terminal patients have nothing to lose by trying it if they can find it. It is probably MUCH safer and more effective than chemo.

Telomerase inhibitors also make cancer cells 'mortal' and slow them down, if not kill them outright. lots of research going on with them. Pubmed, the medline search, has articles on these things, along with angiogenesis inhibitors and farnesyl transferase inhibitors, as well as the 'vaccines.' God Bless
