Japanese mushroom extract found to cure HPV

The Japanese mushroom extract Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC) has been found to eradicate human papillomavirus (HPV) according to research presented by Dr. Judith A. Smith from the University of Texas Health Science Center Medical School at Houston at the March 23, 2014, session of the Society of Gynecological Oncology Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer in Tampa, Florida.

AHCC eliminated HPV in cancer cell testing and in mouse tests. Complete eradication of HPV occurred in 90 days and presented a detectable response after 30 days. Testing in women is presently in progress.

AHCC works by increasing the human body’s ability to produce immune cells that fight disease.

AHCC is derived from the shitake mushroom and has been used to treat cancer, high blood pressure, and other diseases in Japan for several decades. The supplement is available in the United States without a prescription.

This discovery may make more people that have HPV more likely to be cured than the vaccines that are presently available.

One wonders how the religious right that has opposed the use of the HPV vaccine will respond to this discovery. The “sinner” already has the disease (punishment) for their “sexual sin” so what grounds can be substantiated for curing a disease by those so insistent on death by cancer for people who have HPV.
