Hello, everyone. Today’s topic is on chondrosarcoma, and we are discussing chondrosarcoma and, related to cancer obviously, with something on the natural side of things. So, for those of you that don’t know me, I am Dr. Dylan Foster. I’m a chiropractic physician, a functional medicine practitioner, and a oncology nutritional counselor, certified in that, as well as a doctor of pastoral medicine. So, basically what this means is my life has been spent on learning, researching anything and everything I can on using natural tools and needs to help people. So, if you’re here looking for more medical advice on your disease or condition, and you’re looking for medical treatments, this is not the place for you. Even though today, we are going to go over a reviewed research article on a medical journal. So we’re going to do that. So, let me share my page here, my screen.
So, we’re going to share this screen right here. So, today’s topic is from the Oncology Reports journal. Let me make this a little bigger. Oncology Reports journal. And the title of this journal article today is, “Apoptotic Effect of Pyrroloquinoline Quinone on,” sorry, “Chondrosarcoma Cells Through Activation of the Mitochondrial Caspase‑dependent and Caspase‑independent Pathways.” That’s a mouthful. So, basically what does that mean? Pyrroloquinoline is a, we’re going to call that PQQ for short today. And it’s talking about apoptotic, which is apoptosis, is the destruction and self destruction of what we want to be for cancerous cells of chondrosarcoma cells. So, we want these cells to self destruct cancerous cells, and we’re using and talking about a study with something natural, PQQ, which is in a lot of foods.
I’ll go over that in a second here. And it has to do with the mitochondrial pathways, these dependent pathways, or how your body uses them to basically make energy, repair cells, repair DNA, things like that. So, the reason I’m talking about PQQ in today’s topic, is because if you go to our website, as you know, let me go to our main page here. So, on our website on PostChemoNutrition.com, which I made specifically for people that have been through chemotherapy and radiation therapy, that have had a hard time bouncing back. This was not designed to treat you for cancer. That’s not what it’s for. It’s just for helping people get healthier. Again, that’s all I’m about. So, we’re talking about a product called Cell Revive, today. And within that product, we have many, many, many ingredients, and it consists of, if you’re going to see here, it consists of 60 AM and PM packets.
So, it’s very easy to take very simple. And each packet has different ingredients, as you can see here. Now, the ingredients are right here, of this one, and we’re talking about PQQ in our Cell Revive kit, but it’s our Mito Life ingredient. So, Mito Life has two product properties in it, Rhodiola, which is salidroside, which we’ve talked about that in other cancer prevention vlogs. But today we’re talking about PQQ. And so, we’re going to discuss that, but go further. If you go into our, let me close down here, education, education research. And because we’re talking about Cell Revive’s ingredients, we’re going to go to Cell Revive research articles. And as you’re going to see, all my products or my ingredients are based on a lot of research studies that are scientific research studies in medical journals and books. So, I basically have dozens, if not over a hundred in here, and we’re going to go down, I’m going to keep scrolling down here until we get to … keep rolling down.
We want to get to Mito Life, so you can see there’s a lot in here, my whole life. Here we go. So we are talking about PQQ, as related to chondrosarcoma. So, I’m looking for that in here, chondrosarcoma, right here. So, here is the link. It will also be in the link on the explanation of the video. So, you can find it there as well, but that’s where you can see. I want you to see, I have a lot of research articles here, there’s many more just on that product. So, I believe in finding as much as I can to validate why I’m using what I’m using to help people, because I always get … people say, “There’s no research,” when there actually is. And the idea that people say that is because they haven’t looked. So, that’s why I’m doing this article here.
So, let’s talk about, real quick, foods high in PQQ. And I’ll go over this again, but these are the common foods. So, you’re not getting a lot. It is dose dependent for the benefits. These are great for maintenance, but if you need a little catch up, which is what my product is for, you use the supplements to catch up, and then you maintain by having daily servings of things like parsley, green tea, Kiwi, green peppers, papaya, spinach, all of these products have, obviously it goes from highest to lowest, they all have a lot of health and healing properties. So, it’s good to always to eat from nature, right? Can’t go wrong there, but let’s get into the research article today. So again, we’re talking from Oncology Reports from 2018. So, let’s start off what the topic at top here chondrosarcomas are malignant tumors of the bone, that exhibit resistance to chemotherapy and radiation.
So, I want to say that again, chondrosarcoma is, are malignant tumors of the bone, that exhibit resistance to chemotherapy and radiation. So, that’s not good, right? If that’s your main treatment method. (PQQ) is a bacterial redox co‑factor, so it helps with healthy bacteria, and is an antioxidant that has been found to induce apoptosis in various cancer cells. So, basically, they’re saying PQQ has found to kill off cancerous cells, right? By helping them self-destruct. And this study investigates the role of PQQ in this apoptosis, specifically of chondrosarcoma cells, which is today’s topic. So, as you scroll down here, in vivo tumor, basically means in living cells and living tissue, the PQQ is able to inhibit tumor growth in mice with chondrosarcoma, but then it goes on to find and state that these findings demonstrate that PQQ induced apoptosis in human chondrosarcoma cells by activating …
So let’s say again, human chondrosarcoma cells, human. By activating the mitochondrial pathways, in that the proteins involved in these pathways, may have a potential effect as an antitumor treatment for targeting these chondrosarcomas. So, they’re saying PQQ can help with cancerous chondrosarcoma cells by targeting these mitochondrial pathways. This is huge. This is huge. Now the sad part is, even though the study was stating this, we’re not going to see, in the United States, in my opinion, and this is just my opinion now, that too many people are going to be seeing PQQ being used in their traditional treatment. The medical establishment is very big on using, it’s going to sound bad, but unfortunately there’s a lot of truth to it, but they want to use high profit margin products, things that can make money. They focus on things that have more studies, which is good. But most of those things, if not, all of them are designed and catered towards making lots of money, it’s not in the billions of dollars.
And when you’re using something natural like this, there’s not much money to be made and anybody can use it. Heck, you can go to any health foods store, you can go online and go to Cell Revive and buy it from us at Post Chemo Nutrition. So, you’re not going to see this happen with the natural products too much, in the United States. Other countries, I find that they tend to lean more towards natural products. A lot of times just incorporating it within the treatment, which again, I found some research that this works well within traditional treatments on helping it work better, as you will have seen from other studies we’ve done or gone over. So, I’ll get off that soap box a little bit here. It’s unfortunate, but unfortunately I do see it very common in the US here. So, back to the research article, chondrosarcoma is the second most common primary bone malignancy.
So, a little history there. And it accounts for 40% of all primary bone malignancies. It’s mostly found in adults between the ages of 40 and 60. And again, it says, “Although chemotherapy and radiation have been investigated for their efficiencies against their effectiveness of chondrosarcoma, they’re not traditionally used as active treatment since these tumors are notoriously resistant to both chemotherapy and radiation therapy.” So, they’re saying that it doesn’t usually work too well with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which is probably the most common treatments besides surgery. PQQ was found to induce apoptosis again, in multiple types of human cancer cells. So, now we’re not just talking about chondrosarcoma, we’re talking about other cancerous cells, such as these cells in leukemia, lymphoma, cell deaths of specific Jurkat cells, lung cancer cell death, again, using the mitochondrial pathways. And helping regulate cell death of cancerous cells, helping them work better.
So, PQQ was found to have little effect on normal cells, which means they may be an ideal drug for cancer therapy in the future. So, what does that mean? PQQ little effect on normal cells? That means it doesn’t have a lot of side effects. That’s awesome, right? So, it’s safe for us. Can’t say that about radiation or chemotherapy, they have a lot of side effects. So, they’re saying it might be an ideal drug for cancer therapy. Again, the problem is it’s just not a drug, so you’ll never really see it used in cancer therapy in traditional ways, in traditional locations, because it’s not a drug. Now, if they were to isolate it and make it more of a drug and classify it as a drug, well, then I wouldn’t be able to sell it online. You wouldn’t be able to go to the store and buy it. And it’ll go from being a hundred dollars for this product by itself to tens of thousands, because now it’s a drug, right? that’s kind of how the world works, got to make money.
Unfortunately, or fortunately for you and I, right now, it is a natural nutritional product. So, it’s again saying that PQQ did not show signs against toxicity of normal cells. So, that’s awesome. Really awesome. So, let’s scroll down here a little bit more. I’m going to try to finish up quickly because the point’s been covered. Finally, we’ve confirmed that in-vitro effects by showing that PQQ had an in vivo, so in living cell, inhibitory effect on tumorigenesis, so the production of and making of new tumors. And it also caused a decrease in the time tumor size, decrease in the tumor size. So, PQQ may be able to inhibit the spread of these cells, these cancerous chondrosarcoma cells. This is huge. So, this is a lot of great information from this study. And in conclusion, they established that the mechanisms underlying PQQ induced cancer cell apoptosis in chondrosarcoma involves the activation of mitochondrial pathways, as blood goes in the pathways. Obviously, more research needs done, more studies need done.
This is just one case study that I’m reviewing, from the journal of the Oncology Reports, which you can find here on the link below and also on our website. So, I don’t want you to think that this is the end-all pan-Asia cure-all. This is just one study. Many studies need done, many ways of researching need done, but this one is a very positive one that I like to talk about right now. So, I don’t want you to misconstrue that I am saying my Cell Revive products, my product lines, again, prevent, reverse, cure any disease, condition, cancer. Studies need done to make those claims. I’m merely just going over some research articles that were done to help you understand why I put these ingredients … sorry, these ingredients in Cell Revive and Bindatox, both. So, it’s because of those studies that made me make these products.
So, with that being said, this is just for educational purposes only, for you to use at your own accord. Always consult with your physician if you have any questions or concern, and please feel free to email me, I am not your physician. You have to see your primary oncologist for specifics, but I’ll help you with what I can obviously. So, please visit me at PostChemoNutrition.com. Email me, make comments on our pages, wherever you might be seeing this, but ultimately again, I’m Dr. Dylan Foster from Post Chemo Nutrition. I will talk about chondrosarcoma and another ingredient on my next video log. So, for now, I am out of here. So take care, God bless. And I’ll talk with y’all soon.
