Fact-Check-Health-News-False

A viral video on social media claims that even last stage cancer can be cured in 72 hours. The claim is that consuming a home-made mixture made of walnut, sprouted grains, honey, garlic, and lemon can cure the disease. As per the video, the mixture needs to be stored in the fridge and eaten multiple times a day.
We investigated the claim and found it to be false.

The Claim

A Hindi video message on Youtube claims a home made mixture of walnut, sprouted grains, honey, garlic, and lemon can cure even the last stage of cancer. The video gives out a proper recipe for preparation of the ‘medicine’.

An archived version of the video can be seen here.

The video was published by a Youtube Channel named Health Tips for You.

Fact Check

Can the mentioned concoction help in curing Cancer?

The claim doesn’t mention any research as a source of the same. Our secondary research also could not identify any such research where mixture of the mentioned natural ingredients yield into any anti-cancer medicinal value.

We reached out to Cancer specialists, dietician and ayurveda doctors to get their view on the issue.

As per Dr. Manish Singhal, Senior Oncologist, “This is an absolutely baseless claim. It’s a dangerous one too as people falling for this may take their actual cancer treatment lightly. Any type of Cancer requires serious medical treatments as per the doctor’s advice. Depending blindly on such fake claims and that too in advanced stages of Cancer can prove to be fatal”

Kajal Gupta, Dietitian and Nutritionist and also a certified Alternate medicine practitioner echoes the same sentiment. She says, “This is not true. The individual food items mentioned are healthy. But hoping that they can cure cancer and that too in 3 days is completely false. It’s advisable to eat all healthy food possible to prevent cancer but curing cancer only through diet is not a real possibility”

Can Cancer be cured through Ayurveda or by using natural products or herbal ingredients?

On this Dr. Singhal says, “Even Allopathy medicines contain extracts from natural ingredients wherever required. But any ingredient’s efficacy on a particular treatment needs to be substantiated by research.
We need to know how much of a natural ingredient needs to be administered to what kind of patients before we start believing on herbal products for Cancer cure.”

In 2017, AIIMS had taken up a major research project where it will collaborate with experts from the Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences to study and validate the efficacy of Ayurveda drugs used for treating cancer of the breast, cervix, and oral cancer, among others. While there have been reports about these natural products helping in reducing the side effects of Allopathy medicine, no evidence had been found where Ayurveda products can cure Cancer.
