The article below has to be regarded as a natural cure for lung cancer. D.H was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in 2000. As of April 2004 he managed an overall decrease in lung cancer tumor mass by about 90%.
Professor Ronald S. Pardini informed me (Kevin Flatt) in an email on Tuesday, 5 August 2008 that D.H.’s most recent CT scans show continued decreases in his lung cancer tumors to 99% compared with about 90% as of April 2004, as mentioned above, and he is stable.
Ron Pardini said: “I’m preparing a “Letter to the Editor” update of his case and will include the most recent CT scans.”
Note: I hope to keep you up to date and publish more information regarding D.H.’s case in the near future.

Ron Pardini is not a medical doctor. Yet he is seen as a hero by his cancer-stricken neighbor, â€œD.H.â€ Pardini helped the 78-year-old after D.H. was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.
â€œIn 2000 he was told by his doctor he had only a few months to live,â€ said Pardini, a professor of biochemistry and associate director of the Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station at the University of Nevada, Reno. â€œBut five years later, he is still alive, and has even gained a little weight.â€
The cancerous tumors found in D.H.â€™s lungs have shrunk to 10 percent of what they were in 2000, according to last yearâ€™s computed tomography (CT) scans.
What worked with DH is not a common medical treatment such as chemotherapy or surgical excision. It was a nutritional intervention, drastically increasing the patientâ€™s intake of omega-3 fatty acids, which are often found in fish oil or golden algae oil.
Pardiniâ€™s previous research showed that omega-3 fatty acids significantly depressed the growth of human mammary, ovarian, colon, prostate and pancreatic cancer cells that were injected into athymic miceâ€”also known as nude mice.
His studies also demonstrated that fish oil consumption improves a mouseâ€™s responsiveness to chemotherapy.
Fish oil research was inspired by observations that Inuit Eskimo populations have less breast and prostate cancer deaths.
So far, though, most studies in this country are limited to animal models, but a case study about D.H., which was published in the recent issue of the Nutrition and Cancer journal, could be a major step forward for human clinical trials.
While beginning to take high dose of fish oil and golden algae oil capsules daily, D.H. also reduced corn-based foods from his diet. Corn contains omega-6 fatty acids that Pardini said are found to increase cancer growth.
Pardini is optimistic of what his findings may contribute to cancer treatment.
â€œWe have good evidence for employing nutritional interventions to improve cancer treatment and patient well-being,â€ he said.
Pardini wants to be able to provide viable non-toxic, over-the-counter solutions for the numerous people with fear of cancer in the back of their minds.
