*** Cannabinoids and tumor inhibition in the news again this week!: http://www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v08/n0... On this video filmed in 2006, Dr. Robert Melamede, Professor of Biology at the University of Colorado, explains how the body's Endo-Cannabinoid system (and plant based Cannabinoids as suppliment) kills cancer cells and inhibits tumor growth. Refering to 1974 U.S.government-sponsored study when THC was found to slow growth of cancer cells http://projectcensored.org/publicatio... and to recent research in Spain finding that THC stopped brain tumors in rats and protected surrounding nerve tissue, demonstrating neuroprotectant aspect of Cannabinoids. PDF of Dr. Guzman's research: http://americanmarijuana.org/Guzman-C... Refering to "Homeostatic Regulation" of several body systems by Cannabinoids, Dr. Melamede concludes that Cannabis is indeed a "Miracle Drug", also recommending hemp oil as excellent source of EFAs the body needs to fight disease. View Dr. Robert Melamede at 2004 Cannabis Therapeutics Conference: "Holistic Biochemistry of Cannabinoids" http://video.google.com/videoplay?doc...
