Black cumin seed oil and its extract (thymoquinone) are a powerful weapon against melanoma, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer, cervical cancer, bone cancer, breast cancer, stomach cancer, lymphoma, prostate cancer, colon cancer, and brain cancer.
Besides decades of black cumin oil research, scientists have not yet made any advances in human clinical tests, even with almost no risk of side effects.
As we can conclude from some studies, black seed oil is an efficient way of treatment for many types of cancer.
However, it is still doesn’t get enough recognition from modern medicine. This article will try to examine the political pressures that might be holding back tests on humans, and will also try to learn why the drug industry wishes to subdue the use of black seed oil.
Black seed oil has been used as cancer treatment for ages
The oil and the extracted component called thymoquinone are both effective against many diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular complications, diabetes, asthma, kidney disease, etc. It is a safe and effective agent against cancer in the blood system, lungs, kidneys, liver, prostate, breast, cervix, and skin.
The scientist also noted that the exact mechanism behind its anti-cancer properties is still not completely understood. Some studies suggest that the thymoquinone has an antioxidant role and reinforces the immune system.
What we know for sure is that the black cumin seed oil induces apoptosis in cancer cells, without compromising the immunity. It controls the Akt pathway as well, meaning that it has control over the cell survival of all cells in the body, healthy and cancerous.
Although nigella sativa’s power is known for thousands of years, modern medicine has recognized it only recently, in the last two to three decades.
Black Cumin Seed and Honey Work Together
Egyptian scientists have been studying the effect of honey and black cumin seed oil on oxidative stress and cancer by exposing rats to a strong carcinogen. Four groups in total were exposed to the carcinogen – some groups were then fed black seeds or honey, and only one group was fed with both ingredients combined.
After 6 months, the rats were evaluated – the ones that ate only black cumin seeds had 80% protection against oxidative stress and cancer formation, but the group that was fed black cumin seeds and honey had 100% protection against oxidative stress, cancer formation and inflammatory responses.
