Cancer and Copper does Too Much Copper May Feed Certain Cancers

Could having excess copper in the body with certain kinds of cancer be a problem. I routinely test copper and zinc levels in my patients facing this health challenge before doing any therapeutic intervention to address possible copper imbalances.

Here is an excerpt from the scientific literature, you decide if it is worth investigating.

“Copper chelation regimens like penicillamine and tetrathiomolybdate are being described in the literature as having anti-angiogenic, anti-fibrotic and anti-inflammatory actions. Animal models of brain cancer that evaluated the anti-angiogenic properties of copper, have proven evidence of the reduction of tumor’s microvascular supply, tumor volume and vascular permeability after plasma copper levels reduction. Interestingly, plasma copper levels reduction was shown to suppress micrometastases generation in mice models of breast cancer.”
