    Default New Discovery Finds Garden Weed Offers Hope For Cancer

    While stinging nettles may be the bane of gardeners across the land, new research found that they offer hope in the treatment of cancer. Traditionally used for allergy relief and as a way to boost dietary nutrition, a substance in the weed identified as JPC11 was found to fight cancer in two ways.
    New research published in the medical journal Nature Chemistry found that these nuisance weeds may offer hope in the treatment of cancer.

    Although I'm told they grow in Maine, I have none on my property and I'm not sure I'd recognize them even if there were!

    Stinging nettles are a sharp pain but strictly short term temporary, and probably reinforce your immune system but who's studying research? No money in that, weeds are just that except for that special one

    You will know when you touch them, it's a distinct sharp pain that is part itch and part stab. But they have as much of a right to live and exist as you and me and the bee and the bird

    I'm one that is always sarcastically cynically analyzing, so when anyone labels "nuisance weed" I tend to think, there's more to that and why they'd be opposed to it, just weed whack them if you must or leave them alone, they are part of nature's life cycle. One man's ceiling...

    Great to hear stinging nettle can help fight cancer. This herb also works wonders in boosting Kidney function. A few weeks sipping on nettle herbal tea, made from caffeine free "organic" nettle tea bags, will work wonders for kidney function.
