Science Daily reports on a University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and VA Medical Center research trial to evaluate the effectiveness of Frankincense oil on bladder cancer cells.
We most often hear of Frankincense as a gift made to Kings and Nobles in ancient times. The oil originates in Africa, India and the Middle East where it is used for many medicinal, religious and cosmetic purposes. Now new western research suggests that it has the potential for being an effective agent against bladder cancer.
Bladder cancer is twice as common among males as females in the United States, and is the 4th most common cause of death among American males.
The new research supports the idea that Frankincense Oil suppresses cancer cell growth by arresting the cell cycle progression and killing the cancer cell. It is believed to cost a great deal less than other therapies for Bladder Cancer, and may become a recommended alternative therapy.
