Butyric acid.

Multiple studies have shown butyric acid’s potential ability to fight cancer, especially cancer in the colon. It’s actually shown an ability to “modify nuclear architecture” and induce the death of colon cancer cells. This is likely a huge reason why increased fiber intake has been linked with less colon cancer since higher fiber intake can typically equate to more butyric acid present in the colon.According to 2011 research published in the International Journal of Cancer, “the role of short chain fatty acids, particularly butyrate, in colon cancer therapy has been extensively studied, and its tumor suppressive functions are believed to be due to their intracellular actions.” This laboratory study further shows that butyrate treatment led to an increase in the programmed cell death of colon cancer cells.According to a 2014 scientific article, it looks like “a high-fiber diet protects against colorectal tumors in a microbiota- and butyrate-dependent manner.” What does that mean? It means that most likely getting plenty of fiber isn’t what fends off cancer on its own. It’s eating a diet rich in healthy fiber AND having enough good gut flora AND enough BTA present in the body that can provides cancer defense in the colon.

Thanks for posting the articles.  The whole issue of gut biome is an interesting one.  Many of the helpful foods and supplements seem to have a positive effect on the biome.  There is so much to learn.

Interesting. Have you heard about the researchers in Isreal (I think it was) saying that they expect to have a cure within a year? It's going to be a mutil-pronged treatment similar to what they do for people with Aids. I wouldn't be surprised if this was part of it.

Jan:  It would be great if the Israeli program is true, however, I think there are some reasons to be cautious about it.

Yes, like everything else. They say it's working in mice. A number of possible cancer treatments have worked in mice but then fail in humans. I can dream, though. Can you imagine being the group or person that actually finds a cure? You'd be the hero of all time! My God, cancer's been around since the dinosaurs!
