The Surprising Cancer-Killing Cocktail
Erectile dysfunction drugs such as Levitra combined with a polyphenol abundant in Japanese green tea may be highly effective in fighting cancer when consumed together.
In a study published last Friday in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, professor Hirofumi Tachibana of Kyushu University and fellow researches announced the results of their research, and explained how they made the finding. Several years ago Professor Tachibana’s research established that the major constituent of green tea known as ECCG suppressed cancer cell activity, but lacked potency. Tachibana suspected that the human enzyme PDE5 (phosphodiesterase 5)might be weakening the curative properties of ECCG. ECCG and other polyphenols have long been known to slow cancer growth but the mechanism is not completely understood.
Knowing that Levitra and other erectile dysfunction drugs block PDE5, Tachibana injected them into a mouse suffering blood cancer together with the active ingredient in green tea and found that the cancer cells stopped growing.
The Green-Tea/Levitra Martini was highly effective on pancreatic, stomach and prostate tumors. This is a good thing because if you’re going to be taking Levitra, you definitely want a healthy prostate. The possible side effect of a four-hour erection from taking Levitra is maybe something you don’t want but still it’s better than prostate cancer.
Malignant cells also vanished during the treatment of a mouse that had been implanted with human breast cancer cells. The study asserts that in-vitro experiments have proven the erectile dysfunction medicine and green tea combination treatment to be more effective than existing treatments.
In other words, Levitra synergizes with EGCG to induce cancer cell death. (It’s not known if the two taste good together.) The Green-Tea/Levitra Cocktail (or Martini if you like) was highly effective on pancreatic, stomach and prostate tumors. This is a good thing because if you’re going to be taking Levitra, you definitely want a healthy prostate. The possible side effect of a four-hour erection from taking Levitra is maybe something you don’t want but still it’s better than prostate cancer.
Kyushu University warned that people shouldn’t be mixing up their own batches of green tea and erectile dysfunction drugs at home, as this could be dangerous.
Although testing in human is not scheduled to begin next year, one thing is for sure: there are a lot of men who are going to misuse this study to justify drinking green tea.
