Mistletoe will soon adorn hallways and candles with its delightful scent will burn brightly. But, have you ever stopped to wonder if mistletoe could be used for more than just decoration… New research suggests that Mistletoe could actually be very useful for fighting cancer.
In Europe, the leading alternative cancer therapy is mistletoe extract injections. The injections are often used in conjunction with conventional therapy to protect healthy cell DNA. Mistletoe extract also increases the efficacy of traditional cancer treatments while reducing harmful side effects.
The University of Adelaide in Australia performed a study that found mistletoe extract to be more effective and less harmful than chemotherapy, as well. Despite all this, the FDA has rejected approval for use of the extracts.
