My husband's radiologist told me to look up laminaria japonica (kelp) on the web.
He said his colleagues wouldn't agree with him but he thought it was worth a try.
Have any of you tried this?
If you have tried this can you tell me where you bought it from?
There are 100's of companies on the internet that sell kelp & I want to make sure I am buying from a reputable company.
Thanks

    "A glycoprotein from Laminaria japonica induces apoptosis in HT-29 colon cancer cells."
    Read here: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

    They don't mention how they administer the glycoprotein, or how they
    separate it from the raw kelp; And therein lies the problem....

    There are a lot of common chemicals that can kill cancer cells,
    since cancer cells are quite vulnerable to any toxic substance,
    and a whole world of safe substances. In fact, oxygen can kill
    cancer cells....

    A cancer cell is a very simple life form (like an amoeba). It lives
    by the fermentation process, using glucose for energy and churning
    out lactic acid. Our liver takes the lactic acid and changes it
    back to glucose...... And a cancer cell is nothing more than a
    normal cell that has been damaged in such a way, that it no longer
    can take instructions from our body... For whatever reason,
    some of us have an immune system that didn't take that dying cell
    out of our body, so it began living by the fermentation process to
    continue it's life.

    So a cancer cell is actually fairly fragile... it has no "brain", and isn't
    foreign to our body.... it's only trying to stay alive in any way it can.
    Bless it's little structure, ehh?

    The problem isn't what to use to kill cancer cells, it's how to
    target the cancer cell specifically, and how to transport the
    agent into it. Although grape juice can kill a cancer cell if
    it is injected with the substance, drinking gallons of it just isn't
    going to do much of anything, except perhaps make you visit
    the toilet a lot.

    There are other more viable ways to fight cancer, many of which
    have been tried and tested, and have produced great results.

    So... before you knock yourself out trying to buy stinky kelp,
    let's find out how they used it to get the results they are talking about.

    And with a quick click or three, it appears that the tests were
    all "in vitro":
    See: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=laminaria%20japonica%20&itool=QuerySuggestion

    How things work in a test tube isn't a great example for how
    the same substance will work if you drink it, smoke it, or
    take it as a suppository.... (ouch)

    When we're frightened of death, or having a lousy diagnosis
    of a terminal disease, we have this terrible tendency to disregard
    logic and intuition, and end up listening to people that make wild
    claims for the enhancement of our survival.

    There -are- other options, but you have to relax, and take your time
    and read and understand the options available, and why they are
    more viable than what you hear about "on the street".

    Try not to fear cancer..... you -can- win!

    Thanks for the info John.

    Thanks for the info John.
    My husband's radiologist thinks it is worth a try.
    I still would like to know if anyone has bought kelp online where they bought it from.

    Thanks
