Dear Reader,

What do you think about gold? Does it just symbolize wealth and power? Or does it also have some other meaning or benefit that we haven’t discovered yet? 

A study by researchers from Johns Hopkins University suggests that we’ve been missing out on one very important benefit of gold all this time, and this new finding could be an exciting discovery in alternative medicine. Gold has already been known to have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, but the researchers found that it can also function as an anticancer agent, specifically as an inhibitor of cancerous tumour growth in ovarian cancer cells.

But what makes gold so special anyway? How does it control the growth of cancerous cells? 

This blog explores the mysterious relationship between gold and cancer.

Which Type Of Gold Should Be Used?

The type of gold that should be used to treat cancer is still being debated by the medical community. Some believe that only pure gold can be used, while others believe that any type of gold can be effective. The most important thing is to make sure that the gold is of a high quality so that it can be properly absorbed by the body. There are many different types of gold available on the market and some are more expensive than others. The debate over which type of gold should be used for cancer treatment has yet to be resolved and is something that will continue to puzzle medical experts in the future.

On the other hand, there has been a rumour that nano gold can be used for treating cancer. Nano or colloidal gold is said to work on cancer cells by controlling the growth of these cells. It is believed that the gold particles can attach to the surface of cancer cells and prevent them from growing or multiplying. In addition, nano or colloidal gold is also said to help the body control the growth of cancerous cells. This is because the gold particles can stimulate the production of white blood cells (the body's defence mechanism), which are responsible for attacking and killing cancer cells. 

What Are Other Advantages Of Taking Colloidal Or Nano Gold?

Colloidal gold is created by gold nanoparticles that are about 5 to 10 nanometers in size. When taken as a supplement, it is thought to help with a variety of issues. Some people believe that it can help with arthritis, while others think it can help improve brain function. Some even believe that it can help slow the aging process. While there is no scientific evidence to support these claims, many people continue to take colloidal gold as a supplement due to its purported health benefits. Research has found that for those who do suffer from arthritis, taking colloidal gold supplements may reduce joint pain and inflammation. However, more research needs to be done before any definitive conclusions can be made. There also isn't much evidence to support claims that taking this supplement will increase brain function or make you age slower.


Though more research needs to be done to understand the mechanisms at play, gold appears to have some cancer-fighting properties. In addition to controlling the growth of cancer, gold can help the body control the growth of cancerous cells. As such, it is being used as an alternative medicine for treating different types of cancers, with promising results. Though more research is needed to confirm these findings, gold may prove to be a valuable tool in the fight against cancer. In the end, we hope we've piqued your interest a little bit, and we hope you've learned a little something.
