So the article for grape seeds is a bit of a mishmash of real facts and misinformation. First I want to point out the lack of sources, leaving the reader to go and find all the information for themselves. It’s almost as if the writer didn’t know what they were talking about. There is one source link at the bottom, unfortunately it doesn’t take you to an article discussing the subject at hand but the home page to Natural Healing Magazine where you’re left to search for the origin of the story on your own, again. That’s ok though because the article from healthy living house is a 100% copy of the story from Natural Health Magazine. So we’re left to look this shit up on our own. Destin sent me a couple links to studies on grape seeds and their effect on cancer cells.

First we have a study on the website for the American association for cancer research. According to their wiki page they are the world’s oldest and largest professional association related to cancer research based in Philadelphia with over 34000 members in over 90 countries. The study is titled Abstract 901: Grape seed extract decreases visceral adiposity and impairs the pro-tumorigenic adipose tissue secretions affecting colorectal cancer growth and progression and it took a little digging to find anything beyond the abstract. The thing here is that this is not a supplement study, this is a study of extract applied directly to cells. After reading far too much of this study I realized though, that this isn’t even the study that the article is talking about. This was a hell of a rabbit hole to dig through with tons of research into grape seed extract and its effects on different kinds of cancer cells. I couldn’t seem to get to the actual University of Kentucky study mentioned in the article but I did find a BBC article discussing the study that was fairly good, though with a click baity headlin. As near as I can tell, the study at the U of K that is talked about was from 2008 or 2009 and was the first time Grape seed extract has been tested on a blood cancer, in this case it was Leukemia. In the U of K study they introduced grape seed extract to leukemia cells in the hopes of activating a protein called JNK which can induce apoptosis in cancer cells. According to Kat Arney Cancer Research UK senior cancer information officer, “it’s still a long way from being a treatment that we can give to patients”. With some measure of success it seems like there may be something to the grape seed cancer treatment idea. I’ll include links to all those articles and studies as well as another study for its effects on colon cancer in the show notes. All in all, it took a lot of work to find out that there was a study done at the University of Kentucky that showed promising results in incorporating grapeseed into prevention and treatment of blood cancers and possibly other cancers. However, the article from Healthy Living House and Natural Health Magazine are both still wootastic and full of shit because they assert that, “the real truth is that we all know that there is a cure for cancer, but the big pharmaceutical companies decided to keep it secret” and that “this seed can cure any cancer in just a few days”
