The active ingredient in marijuana cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread, say researchers at Harvard University who tested the chemical in both lab and mouse studies

They say this is the first set of experiments to show that the compound, Delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), inhibits EGF-induced growth and migration in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expressing non-small cell lung cancer cell lines. Lung cancers that over-express EGFR are usually highly aggressive and resistant to chemotherapy.

THC that targets cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 is similar in function to endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body and activate these receptors. The researchers suggest that THC or other designer agents that activate these receptors might be used in a targeted fashion to treat lung cancer.

+Jo Sparkles wow !...thats seriously counter intuitive: inhaling burning plant matter is good for your lungs? I guess it's possible but like all these things, there will probably be a report out next year that says THC makes your nose fall off.

Just for myself I am getting pretty tired of these "reports". Particularly the cell phone reports where one year they cause cancer and the next year they don't.
 
You don't have to burn it to use THC, I didn't read this article.
 
+Mark Underwood Please see for yourself that there is TONS of info out there shared right here on G+. Click on any of the hash tags here shown above and you will be totally amazed at all the many benefits of this plant... Even Hemp oil is being treated to heal diabetes and kill brain cancer... It's truly amazing...
They have lied to us for years but the proof is in the pudding... Yes Pot saves lives and hemp can be used for so many things that it would blow you away..
Instead they make more money keeping people in jail and keeping it illegal.. To bad it heals people of so many illnesses and has cured cancer.

Hey Jo, where you goin with that bong in your hand

(sorry could not resist ;-)

...don't get me wrong I am not anti grass, when I was a teenager I was a serious indulger, grass is a great drug if you use it carefully, and I am well aware of how useful hemp is.

My only advice to anyone reading this who smokes is: use it sparingly (like any drug) if you are trying to go anywhere in life. If you walk into a room one day and suddenly realize everyone has become lobotomized (you'll know what I mean if/when it happens) you have abused that drug, it will never make you happy again... and it's time to leave that room.


When the laughing stops, so should you.
Some people however can smoke like chimneys and they don't have this problem, but most do, so just bare that in mind.

Sorry for the aside but I would hate to promote any drug as being completely harmless...they all have a use by date at which point wise non-addictive personalities get out easily...but be careful if you are neither of these.

When you take any drug (including alcohol of course) you are rolling the dice...are you an addictive personality or not, or as Dirty Harry would say: "do yah feel lucky"?
