Chines Herb Qing Hao/Artemisiae Herba also known as Wormwood has been shown in medical research to kill cancer cells. Scientists are researching the effects of Wormwood and Iron on the destruction of breast cancer cells. In the study, researchers are reporting that the plant kills iron-enriched breast cancer cells but doesn’t harm many healthy ones. Artemesinin’s destructive properties are triggered by higher than normal levels of iron in cancer cells. The Research is there, but why is this info not more readily available to the public?

To read more on the research of this herb, I’ve attached some links:
