Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2008
Word is out that groundbreaking LifeMel honey can be a of great advantage for the many number of cancer patients in the African American community. As many people know, the rate of African American men affected by cancer is 15% higher than white men and the death rate is 38% higher. So what do these sufferers have to gain from a little bit of honey?
Developed in Israel and now being distributed in the USA, LifeMel Honey has had a positive impact on chemotherapy patients. While accomplishing its primary task of killing fast-growing cancer cells, chemotherapy treatment can harm healthy cells. When the healthy cells are affected or harmed, there are unpleasant side effects, including low blood cell levels. If the blood levels drop too low, cancer patients are unable to continue chemotherapy. Without being able to continue the chemotherapy treatments they risk the cancer taking over and an uncertain future.
In a clinical trial published last year in the Journal of Oncology, 64 percent of patients showed a decrease in anemia and the incidence of severe neutropenia (an abnormally low white cell count). In addition, the honey was found to lower the incidence of potentially fatal thrombocytopenia (low platelets). "The patients taking part in this trial were the kind who had no other solution," says Yaron Shmueli a spokesman for the American distributor New Horizon, LLC. "They had already taken shots to boost their immune system and these had failed." Shmueli said that further testimonials and the clinical trials as well as other information on LifeMel honey were available on the USA website, http://www.lifemelusa.com
LifeMel Honey could be the solution they are looking for. Lifemel keeps their blood levels up and keeps them healthy enough to finish their chemotherapy treatments. "This is a fantastic story about how bees can help treat cancer patients," says Shmueli. "People who have to undergo chemotherapy don't have too many alternatives. We are trying to help them."
Now, although the number of cancer patients is so high for African Americans, there is a solution to help alleviate some of the concerns these patients face on a daily basis. They have so much to deal with already without the fear that they may not be able to continue with their chemotherapy treatment due to low blood cell levels.
