There is a connection between cancer and nutrition, it does not matter what we eat. We know more and more secondary plant compounds that can help the body prevent cancer, even eliminate cancer cells. In the 1990s, professors Dan Burke and Gerry Potter of the University of Aberdeen discovered an enzyme they called CYP1B1. The extraordinary thing about it is that it occurs exclusively in cancer cells. When CYP1B1 is activated, it causes the body, in short, to kill the degenerate cell. There are substances in plant food that can support this process. Collectively, the researchers called these substances salvestrols.
Discovery of a cancer-specific tumor marker
The two English cancer researchers, Prof. Dan Burke and Prof. Gerry Potter, have discovered in over ten years of research that all cancer cells in all types of cancer contain a protein that does not occur in healthy cells, namely CYP1B1. This is the first time that a universal cancer-specific enzyme has been found.
The English research team found that the active ingredient styloserene, a type of prodrug, is converted by CYP1B1 to metabolites that trigger apoptosis, the natural cell death in cancer cells.

Search for CYP1B1-activating substances
The search was now on for natural substances in foodstuffs that are similar to stilserene and have the same anti-cancer effect. Resveratrol was found, which is contained in grape seed extract, for example. Interestingly, this is only converted into anti-cancer picetannol by CYP1B1 in very small doses (10-12 mg daily) and becomes ineffective at higher doses. In the search for other natural substances with the same properties, plant phytoalexins were found, of which there are probably about 50. Prof. Burke gave this class of substances the name salvestrols.

What exactly are salvestrols?
Salvestrols are secondary plant compounds that the plant produces to protect against rot and fungal diseases.
In the human body, the substances have a special effect in cancer cells. They are able to metabolize the cytochrome CYP1B1, which is only found in cancer cells, creating new molecules that can cause the cancer cell to die. Salvestrols therefore explain why eating fruits and vegetables can prevent cancer, but this only applies to organically grown plants. Unfortunately, conventionally grown vegetables and fruits are treated with artificial “pesticides”, which is why they hardly form any protective substances of their own. These foods are poor in salvestrols.
Salvestrols are chemically very different compounds. Salvestrols are found in various vegetables, fruits, berries and aromatic herbs. Many traditional medicinal herbs also have a high content of salvestrols.
It is not uncommon for these to be tastily bitter or pungent plant substances, which act as salvestrols. Nowadays, unfortunately, it is precisely these flavors that are bred out of the plants, so that the plants can only form a few salvestrols.
Salvestrols are also available in special dietary supplements.
The researchers were also able to show that the effect of salvestrols can be enhanced by exercise on the one hand and by the following substances on the other: biotin (vitamin H), magnesium, vitamin B3, vitamin C and iron.
A study that gives hope
In April 2022, an interesting study was published on the effectiveness of Salvestrol products as an adjunct to conventional cancer treatment. It is a randomized, placebo-controlled study with a Salvestrol product and amazing results. A total of 102 people with different types of cancer (head and neck, gastrointestinal, ovarian, breast and lung) were included. The aim of the observations was to determine the effect of Salvestrols on quality of life and life expectancy in combination with conventional cancer therapy. The results of the patients who received additional Salvestrol showed, among other things, a significant increase in life expectancy between 99 and 280% (for all cancer types except breast cancer).
