Dr. Ralph W. Moss and son Ben discuss the healing and preventive properties of the readily available, inexpensive and delicious, humble little parsley plant.
Join us for another fascinating journey as we dive 'Beyond the Garnish' into the remarkable world of parsley and its component, Apigenin. This humble herb, often relegated to the sidelines of our plates, holds an impressive secret - the potential to significantly impact the fight against cancer.

“A comprehensive self-help plan for cancer includes medicinal mushrooms. They are indispensable”. – Ralph W. Moss, PhD
Olive Oil From the Raw https://www.olivefromtheraw.com/?aff=2
“A study of over 1,000,000 people shows that daily consumption of 2 Tbsp of high quality, extra virgin olive oil that contain polyphenols, results in a 30-40% decrease in cancer incidents.” – Ralph W. Moss, PhD

Recommended parsley intake:
Approximately 0.79 tablespoons or 2.37 teaspoons of chopped fresh parsley would provide 10 mg of apigenin. TAKE about one tablespoon OR THE EQUIVALENT AMT. OF DRIED PARSLEY (SEE BELOW) TWICE PER DAY.
For 0.69 grams of dried parsley flakes: 0.69 grams / 0.8 grams per teaspoon ≈ 0.86 teaspoons So, approximately one teaspoon 0.86 teaspoons of dried parsley flakes would provide 10 mg of apigenin. OR TAKE THIS TWICE PER DAY.
NOTE: PATIENTS IN THE GERMAN STUDY ALSO RECEIVED EGCG (GREEN TEA) AT THE SAME TIME.
Based on the average amount of EGCG in one gram of Japanese Sencha green tea leaves (47.3 milligrams), and assuming that you're using one teaspoon (about 2.5 grams) of tea leaves to brew 6 ounces of tea, you can expect to get around 118.25 milligrams of EGCG in your cup of tea.
