Chemotherapy is one of the most well known ways to treat cancer. Unfortunately, chemotherapy drugs by nature are extremely toxic and usually work against your body’s natural mechanisms to fight cancer.
It destroys your host immunity instead of supporting it.
Along with inhibiting your immunity, it destroys healthy cells in your body as well and can lead to more severe health problems going forward. The other side effect chemotherapy has is the fact that it can actually support the growth of more cancer cells by destroying the immune system.
An alternative to chemotherapy can be found in natural compounds that can kill cancer cells without destroying the healthy cells that are essential for recovery. It is an effect called “selective cytotoxicity.” The result is a targeted, intelligent cancer treatment that doesn’t hinder the body’s ability to fight cancer.
One particular compound is found in pineapple stems, called bromelain. A study published in the Journal Planta Medica discovered that bromelain treated cancer in an animal study better than the chemotherapy drug 5-fluorauracil. The effect of bromelian was superior to that of 5-fluorouracil by approximately 263 percent, compared to the untreated control.
The impressive part of this study was that the bromelain worked in a way that didn’t cause additional harm to the animals, whereas the drug 5-fluorauracil was relatively unsuccessful.

“As a highly toxic, fluoride-bound form of the nucleic acid uracil, a normal component of RNA, the drug is supposed to work by tricking more rapidly dividing cells — which include both cancer and healthy intestinal, hair follicle, and immune cells — into taking it up, thereby inhibiting (read: poisoning) RNA replication enzymes and RNA synthesis…”
“When a person dies following conventional cancer treatment it is all too easy to “blame the victim” and simply write that patient’s cancer off as “chemo-resistant,” or “exceptionally aggressive,” when in fact the non-selective nature of the chemotoxic agent is what ultimately lead to their death.”
There is no chemotherapy drug that has been proven to produce effects like selective cytotoxicity. Apart from bromelain, there are a number of other natural compounds that have been known to produce the same results:
