Cancer Fighting Food

This Common Yard Weed is an Anti-Cancer Powerhouse

Dandelion root fights cancer!

The Dandelion Root Project started in 2009 in a bid to investigate the anti-cancer effects of dandelion root extract against cancer cells. 

Dandelion root tea has been proven to kill various types of cancer cells in the lab and in animals (including colon cancer, leukemias, melanoma, and pancreatic cancer), and is now being tested in phase 1 human clinical trials for end stage blood related cancers (leukemia and lymphoma).

In this fascinating 2014 TEDx talk, Dr. Siyaram Pandey PhD describes his research on the remarkable anti-cancer effects of dandelion root tea.

Dr. Pandey also mentions the anti-cancer effects of Long Pepper extract. More about that here.

Dandelion root can be harvested out of your yard, or anywhere you see it growing. Dig up the root, chop or grind it finely, put 1/2tsp -1 tsp in a tea bag, steep in boiling water for 20 minutes and drink it.

If you harvest large amounts of dandelion root, make sure you dry it out (dehydrate it) before storing.

Dosage: 2 or more cups of Dandelion root tea per day

You can also get bulk Dandelion root tea or Dandelion root powder on amazon.

The most potent form is powdered Dandelion Root Extract, which can consumed whole in tea, juice, smoothies, etc. It is currently being investigated in the clinical trial mentioned above to determine the maximum non-toxic daily human dose.

Two sources for bulk Dandelion Root Extract and Long Pepper Extract are kalyx.com and nutricargo.com

And it’s food!
The Dandelion leaves (aka greens) contain vitamins A, K, C and B6, thiamin, riboflavin, calcium, iron, potassium, manganese, folate, magnesium, phosphorus, and copper. Eat the greens in a salad, cook them in a soup or blend them into a smoothie.

    That pesky weed that we gnash our teeth over that takes over the lawn is in fact a little treasure with a golden smile! It healed my irritable bowel syndrome some years ago, as I daily dosed on freshly dug dandelion roots…..my husband thought I was crazy, but I have been free of this problem ever since. It doesn’t taste bad at all – and can be drunk either hot or iced. I scrubbed the roots with a hard bristle brush to get the soil off them, then chopped them up into very tiny pieces and crushed them with my meat tenderizer before popping them into a small pot to boil for about 20 minutes. I strained mine through a small piece if cheese-cloth……very simple to do, and sure saves having to dispose of the little villains in your burn barrel…. O/

      Thanks for sharing your story. I have IBS too so I’m going to try this.

      • Clare

        You are welcome Yvonne. There is another thing too – stress aggravates IBS, even causes it in the first place. Emotional problems can often cause MANY sicknesses – including IBS. Mine was a mixture of emotional stress, “Roundup” and other NASTY, TOXIC herbicides and pesticides. So in treating the problem, I had to find a way to relieve the emotional problems too. I found Jesus, and cast ALL my cares upon Him because He cares for me….and you. I learned to put my trust in God, and peace came. The PEACE of God is VERY healing, and it’s free, and doesn’t need cooking or chopping, just receiving. :-)

    • Chris Wark

      Awesome Clare! Thank you for sharing!!!

      • Clare

        No, Chris…..thank YOU for sharing! God bless you, and what you are doing. I have a friend who has just been told she has rectal cancer, and thanks to you, she now has HOPE instead of chemo, radiation and surgery, and wearing a bag for the rest of her life! Now she can rejoice that there is a way to heal her body and to change what she has been feeding it for so many years. It could also change other things that aren’t working that well in her physically, for GOOD!….I know that she is just one. There will be MANY others who owe you thanks!
        You know, God is SO good….He caters for ALL our needs, if ONLY we will take the time and the willingness to find out, and the humility to receive and put our trust in HIM. In this “technological age” we thought WE could find answers to ALL our problems, and all we did was complicate and mess up what God had ALREADY put into place for us. Stoopid sheep!…..:-)
        The native Americans also used black salve, another herbal remedy. This kills melanomas and removes them. It attacks only cancerous cells and leaves the healthy ones. I have used it, and it works!… :-)

        • D Worrell

          Where can u get the black salve

  • Linda

    That you for sharing this. My family has been eating dandelions for a long time (since I was little). There is not a part of the dandelion that is not good for you, except the seeds. When they are first popping out of the ground in the spring, the leaves are very sweet and make the most delicious salad. As they get larger, they become bitter, so you would want to cook them, the roots are good for tea, as mentioned but if you cook them, and add a bit of stevia, they taste like parsnips. The flowers can be made into a wine or better still, dandelion jelly.

    • Landa Chukure

      Thanks for reminding about other properties of this yellow beauty ==> i know someone who made dandelion liquor and who tried they said it was strong but very tasty , i might try something as i got some big /old ones in the garden as im too busy at work haven`t got time to dig them out . Always knew it was good stuff to drink like tea but …never realy did it ==> it`s on my must do list now ! thanks alot

    • Chris Wark

      Pro tips! Thank you Linda!

  • I’ve roasted the roots and eaten them. Anyone know if eating them you still receive
    the cancer fighting nutrients?

    • Clare

      Don’ know, personally, Tom…..I guess they would have to be very young, tender roots, or they would be like Grandma’s old boot to eat….?….O/

    When making the tea how much water should be used? Do you keep it boiling for the whole twenty minutes with the tea bag in it? I’m thinking that if the water is boiling for twenty minutes then alot of the water will evaporate so maybe a few cups(not just one cup), should be boiled.
    Thank you so much for your help. i am working on Leukemia.

  • chw777

    Also thinking of making a liquid extract by storing it in 80 proof alcohol etc like any other herbal extract.

  • chw777

    Sorry, I found the answer. Thank you anyway.

    great testimony I must share to all cancer patients in the world. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 primary liver cancer in March 2013. The doctor told us there was not much to be done since the tumor was 7 inches covering his lower lobe and also had spread to his lymph nodes. We decided to go home and called hospice which gave us morphine for pain. Ed hated the morphine which made him vomit and also affected his mind. After one week at home we decided to do what we have done for many years, rely on ourselves. We were only in Hospital for 3 days with severe Pain. The cancer had blocked his bile duct, after that we choose a Naturopath doctor and have not had conventional treatments. one day i came across the use of cannabis oil for treatment of cancer and i saw a post on how a cancer patient was cured with cannabis oil. I urgently needed help and i contacted the RICKSIMPSON98@GMAIL.COM to get the cannabis oil, i was given instructional guide on how to use it. After taking a gram of oil per day. Within a couple of weeks his pain and swollen stomach disappeared and with it came hope and a good quality of life. We never saw an oncologist and only have done a blood test after the first diagnose CT scan. His tumor marker went from over 6000 to normal and he is feeling well. We don’t know how this is going to play out, but enjoy every day and give thanks. As i am writing this post, my husband is free from liver cancer and the doctor confirmed that the cancer was cured permanently.

    My wife battle with Breast cancer started 2 years ago, after so many Chemo, Radiation and other natural therapy treatment that i took just to cure my Breast cancer, it all did not work for my condition.

This is a breakthrough in my family with so much Joy in our life today, i do really appreciate all the help and contribution from every member of my family for all they did for me.

    Can anyone offer guidelines on how to consume both the dandelion root extract and the long pepper extract? Mixed with water? Made into teas? How much and how many times per day for general preventive purposes? I ordered both and they arrived today but there are no instructions provided.
