"The doctor said there's not much we can do with her. The doctor at Children's sent her home with more medication; and she wasn't eating or sleeping and they wanted to put her in a hospice. As a parent you want her to grow and blossom. Dr. Kwang has given me back my child. Through the grace of God I found Dr. Kwang on the internet. I told him you are my last resort. He said don't speak that way, there is always hope. The very first time she took the Tea she slept and woke up hungry. Within a few days she started getting better and now she's walking and talking. Dr. Kwang said treat her like a normal child. I have been given his card to everybody. Anyone who has a sick child or loved one I recommend Dr. Kwang. . .Thank You."

Your Food as Medicine
New studies focused on the benefits of using food as medicine have made fascinating discoveries in the last decade. The results from prestigious labs all over the world show us that not only can you improve your general health to prevent disease"¦ you can actively fight disease"¦ with food.
In fact, there are cancer-fighting foods specifically.
You read that right. There are natural foods available in your local market that target and destroy cancer cells and cancer-causing cells.
Top 7 Cancer-Fighting Foods
- Raw Garlic
- Cruciferous Vegetables
- Green Tea
- Leafy Greens
- Cooked Tomatoes
- Raw Garlic:Along with the other relatives in the allium family "“ such as onions, leeks, and shallots "“ garlic contains powerful antioxidants like allicin, proven to remove free radicals from your body. It also boosts immunity, is nutrient dense, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, improves brain function, and is a natural detoxifier. Chop or crush garlic, allow to rest, then use it raw or in your favorite recipes.
- Broccoli:" Known as a cruciferous vegetable "“ related to kale, cauliflower, and cabbage "“ broccoli is high in phytochemicals and the antioxidants glucoraphanin and indole-3-carbinol, which have been proven to reduce the risk of cervical, breast, gastric, and prostate cancers. Naturally anti-inflammatory, good for your bones and heart, and nutrient dense (without the calories), broccoli is a great addition to a healthy eating plan. Since phytochemicals are heat-sensitive enzymes, the benefits of broccoli are best raw or blanched.
- Green Tea:" The catechins found in green tea have made it a superstar in the cancer-fighting food research. They are believed to be more powerful than vitamin C in fighting free radical damage. In multiple lab studies, this delicious beverage has been shown to shrink existing tumors and inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Many experts suggest green tea daily as a natural cancer preventative. As an added benefit, it also reduces your risk of heart disease, lowers your LDL (bad) cholesterol while raising your HDL (good) cholesterol, and lowers your blood pressure.
- Strawberries: Always delicious, there are now more reasons for you to eat these delicate fruits. Researchers found that strawberries slow down the growth of cancer cells, protect your body from heart disease, lower inflammation, prevent memory loss, and help you burn your body"™s fat stores. Strawberries and other dark-colored berries "“ such as black raspberries, blueberries, boysenberries, and, goji berries "“ are packed with flavor so you won"™t even notice how healthy they are.
- Spinach:" Though this leafy green is low in calories, it offers incredible health benefits with vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids that your body needs to stay strong (just like Popeye). It contains bio-chemicals called flavonoids "“ at least thirteen discovered so far "“ that soak up damaging free radicals and flushes them out. Particularly rich in folate and fiber "“ two elements that doctors believe are essential to cancer prevention "“ make spinach one of our favorite cancer-fighting foods.
- Tomatoes:" It"™s all about the lycopene "“ the antioxidant that causes the red color of tomatoes "“ a powerful antioxidant known for preventing the formation of certain cancers. They also lower your risk of heart disease and are naturally anti-inflammatory. The secret to getting the full benefits of tomatoes lies in the preparation. Lycopene is released when tomatoes are cooked. In fact, canned tomatoes have even higher concentrations of lycopene than fresh.
- Carrots:" This well-loved vegetable is a wonderful source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that aids in preventing cell damage and may slow the growth of cancer cells. They contain falcarinol and falcarindiol "“ natural pesticides in the vegetable that scientists believe are the reason for their cancer-fighting abilities. Of course, they"™re good for your vision, skin, and as a natural detoxifier as well.
There are many cancer-fighting foods that we"™re going to explore in more detail but these seven foods are a great place to start." Available year-round, inexpensive, and easy to find at your local store, these foods can help start you on the road to a better diet." And remember"¦ always buy organic!
Eating right doesn"™t have to be horrible. You won"™t regret taking this step in the right direction.
Mini-tumours' created to battle cancer
Scientists have been able to predict how cancer patients will respond to therapy by growing miniature versions of their tumours in the laboratory.
They say the groundbreaking work could lead to "smarter, kinder and more effective treatments".
The study, in the journal Science, was 100% accurate at telling which drugs would fail and this could spare patients from unnecessary side-effects.
Mini-tumours could also be a powerful way of testing new drugs.
Biopsies of 71 patients with advanced colorectal cancer were taken and then grown into miniature 3D cancerous organs in the laboratory.
Growing "organoids" is a relatively new scientific technique and even tiny brains have been made in the lab.
Researchers treated each organoid with the same drug doctors gave to the patient in the clinic.
The results showed:
- If the drug worked in the organoids, it worked 88% of the time in the patient
- If the drug failed in the organoids, it failed 100% of the time in the patient
Just sparing patients the brutal side-effects of a drug that will not work would make a huge difference, the researchers said.
Dr. Valeri, from the Institute of Cancer Research in London, said: "For the first time we proved these organoids not only resembled the biology of metastatic cancer, but also mirror what we see in the clinic."
In one patient, conventional genetic testing had suggested their tumour would respond to a drug.
But the treatment failed in both the clinic and the organoid. The researchers think organoids might be combined with current tests.
Prof David Cunningham, from the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust said: "This promising research moves us forward in the field of personalized medicine, and should ultimately lead to smarter, kinder and more effective treatments for patients."

Previous attempts to predict how patients would respond to treatment included making "cancer avatars" - essentially mice with the patient's cancer growing in them.
But getting the answers quickly enough to inform treatment has always been the challenge.
Dr Valeri said: "This has been a huge issue in the past, when people were using mouse models it was taking six to eight months to get to the results.
"With this tool we can get results in a couple of months and I think we can get even faster."
But if mini-tumours accurately reflect their "parent" cancer then they could be a powerful new tool for testing drugs and for understanding the biology of why cancers can resist treatment.
They could also be used to decide if patients should take part in clinical trials of new drugs.
Prof Charles Swanton, the chief clinician at Cancer Research UK, said: "Predicting how effective treatments such as chemotherapy will be for an individual patient can be difficult, with very few accurate tests available for doctors.
"This new approach could help us test future targeted therapies before trialling them in the clinic."
Primary and secondary cancer
The place where a cancer starts in the body is" called the primary cancer or primary site. Cells from the primary site may break away and spread to other parts of the body. These escaped cells can then grow and form other tumours, which are known as secondary cancers or metastases.
How cancer can" spread to other areas of" the body
Cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body through the bloodstream or lymphatic system." There they can start to grow into new tumours.
Cancers are named according to where they first started developing. For example, if you have bowel cancer that has spread to the liver, it's called bowel cancer with liver metastases or secondaries. It is not called liver cancer. This is because the cancerous cells in the liver are actually cancerous bowel cells. They are not liver cells that have become cancerous.
In order to spread, some cells from the primary cancer must break away, travel to another part of the body and start growing there. Cancer cells don't" stick together as well as normal cells do. They may also produce substances that stimulate them to move."
The diagram below shows a tumour in the cells lining a body structure such as the bowel wall. The tumour grows through the layer holding the cells in place (the basement membrane)."
Some cells can break away and" go into small lymph vessels or blood" vessels called capillaries in the area.
Spread through the" blood circulation
When the cancer cells go" into small blood vessels they can then get into" the" bloodstream. They" are called circulating tumour cells (or CTCs).
Researchers are currently looking at using" circulating tumour cells to" diagnose cancer and avoid the need for tests such as biopsies. They are also looking at whether they can test" circulating cancer cells to predict which treatments will work better."
The" circulating blood sweeps the cancer cells along" until they get" stuck somewhere. Usually they get" stuck in" a very small blood vessel such as a capillary.
Then the cancer cell" must move through the wall of the capillary and into the tissue of the organ close by." The cell" can multiply to form" a new tumour if the conditions are right for it to grow" and it has the nutrients that it needs.
This is quite a complicated process and most cancer cells don't survive it. Probably, out of many thousands of cancer cells that reach the bloodstream," only a few" will survive to form a secondary cancer.
Some cancer cells are probably killed off by the white blood cells in our immune system. Others cancer cells may die because they get battered around by the fast flowing blood.
Cancer cells in the circulation may try to stick to platelets to form clumps to give themselves some protection. Platelets are blood cells that help the blood to clot." This may also help the cancer cells" to move into the surrounding" tissues.
Spread through the" lymphatic system
The lymphatic system is a network of" tubes and glands in the body that" filters body fluid and fights infection. It also traps damaged or harmful cells such as cancer cells."
Cancer cells can go into the small lymph vessels close to the primary tumour" and" travel into" nearby" lymph glands. In the lymph glands, the cancer cells" may be destroyed but some may survive" and grow to form tumours in one or more lymph nodes. Doctors call this lymph node spread.
Micrometastases are areas of cancer spread (metastases) that are too small to see. Some" areas of cancer" are too small to show up on any type of" scan.
For a few types of cancer, blood tests can detect certain proteins released by the cancer cells. These may give a sign that there are metastases in the body that are" too small to show up on a scan. But for most cancers, there is no blood test that can say whether a cancer has spread or not.
For most cancers," doctors can only say whether it is" likely" or not that a cancer" has spread. Doctors base this on a number of factors:
- previous experience "“ doctors collect and publish this information to help each other
- whether there are cancer cells" in the blood vessels in the tumour removed during surgery" "“ if cancer cells" are found then the" cancer is more likely to have spread to other parts of the body
- the grade of the cancer (how abnormal the cells are)" the higher the grade, the more quickly the cancer grows" and the more likely for cells to spread
- whether lymph nodes removed during an operation contained cancer cells" "“ if the lymph nodes contained cancer cells this shows that cancer cells have broken away from the original cancer (but there is no way of knowing whether the cells" have spread to any other areas of the body)
This information is important in treating cancer. Doctors may offer" extra" treatment, such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, biological therapy or hormone therapy if they suspect of micrometastases." The" extra treatments may" increase the chance of curing the cancer.
