My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style

asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in

the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did

this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3

lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell

count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week.

Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3



Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a

friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy

of an article, entitled, Asparagus for cancer ‘printed in

Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it

here, just as it was shared with me: I am a

biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet

to health or over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned

of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that

asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked

with him on his project We have accumulated a number

of favourable case histories. Here are a few examples:


Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case

of Hodgkin’s disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who

was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting

the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to

detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a

schedule of strenuous exercise.

Case No. 2, a successful businessman 68 years old

who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years.

After years of medical treatments, including radiation

without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3

months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumour

had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.


Case No. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he

was put on the operating table where they found

lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable.

The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case

hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus

therapy and immediately started taking it By August,

x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had


He is back at his regular business routine.


Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of

years with skin cancer. She finally developed different

skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting

specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting

on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin

looked fine and no more skin lesions. This woman

reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her

kidney disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10

operations for kidney stones, and was receiving

government disability payments for an inoperable,

terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of

this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.


I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of

materia medica’, edited in 1854 by a Professor at the

University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was

used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even

referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of

asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates!

We would have other case histories but the medical

establishment has interfered with our obtaining some

of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to

spread this good news and help us to gather a large

number of case histories that will overwhelm the

medical sceptics about this unbelievably simple and

natural remedy.


For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked

before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just

as good as fresh. I have corresponded with the two

leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I

am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or


Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to

make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the

patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and

evening. Patients usually show some improvement in

2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a

cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on

present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do

no harm and may be needed in some cases. As a

biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what

cures can prevent.’ Based on this theory, my wife and I

have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with

our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to

suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take

mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we

have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as

part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey,

taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the

nutritional approach to health, showed substantial

improvements in all categories over the last one, and

we can attribute these improvements to nothing but

the asparagus drink.

As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all

aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a

result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better

with the latest theories about cancer.


Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called

histones, which are believed to be active in controlling

cell growth.. For that reason, I believe asparagus can

be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth

normaliser. That accounts for its action on cancer and

in acting as a general body tonic. In any event,

regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is

a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you

from using it and it may do you much good. It has

been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that

asparagus is the highest tested food containing

glutathione, which is considered one of the body’s

most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.
