According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for men in the United States, with more than 240,000 new cases expected to be diagnosed in 2012.
doTERRA's Oregano Essential Oil has so many beneficial effects such as antibacterial properties and anti-inflammatory properties. There is also some literature that shows this compound has some effects against breast cancer and other cancer cells.
They are still running tests on carvacrol, one of the main components of oregano - but preliminary reports have revealed that the compound is an extremely potent anti-cancer agent – eliminating nearly all the prostate cancer cells it was tested against.
A new study published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental
Biology highlights the cancer fighting effects of one of the main components of
oregano called carvacrol. While some research has been done previously on the herb's
medicinal properties, this is the first study of its kind to study the effects of
carvacrol on prostate cancer.

According to the article, the really challenging part [for scientists] is to find out how this is working, They know that the oregano causes these cells to commit suicide [apoptosis], but they want to learn "how" the oregano does what it does so that they can try to DUPLICATE it in a drug that they can patent and sell to us!!
HELLO!!!??? They need to manufacture a drug because they cannot patent the essential oils since they are a natural product that comes directly from plants. My opinion is that everyone needs to be taking oregano essential oil in their daily regiment in order to keep from getting cancer in the first place!
The article goes on to say that figuring out why carvacrol is so effective against prostate cancer could have a significant impact on the future of cancer drugs and research. “We have to remember that this is from oregano which is considered to be a safe food component,” Bavadekar says in the article. “So we’re hoping this translates into a drug with lesser adverse effects in patients.
Come on people!! This amounts to such big business and enormous profits for the drug companies, that [and this is just my opinion] they will NEVER 'find' a cure for any cancer...... they will just keep producing these cancer fighting drugs for giant profits instead.
