I will not say that a cure for cancer has been found but the leads for solving cancer problems are very clear in the horizon but it is extremely difficult to recognize them. The problem is compounded because the powerful stakeholders in the multi-trillion dollars cancer industry would not surrender to a seemingly simple solution which nature has provided to solve this problem.
The NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE which was set up as an organ of the department of Health was to find solutions to the problem of cancer. The focus has all along been on the conventional drug system. They are aware that cancer patients have been using dietary supplements and other unconventional treatments in addition to the regular treatments and have decided to investigate them to be able to give useful advice to patients. The NCI has not endorsed any of them for the use of cancer patients.
Recently, the Institute published the information that it has included a product called Sorghum bicolor supplement in the NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE Dictionary of drugs and described it as An herbal-based nutritional supplement containing the leaf sheaths of the plant Sorghum bicolor, with potential antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, chemopreventive and immunomodulating activities. Sorghum bicolor supplement contains various phytochemicals, including phenolic acids and polyphenols such as proanthocyanidins. Sorghum bicolor supplement is particularly rich in 3-deoxyanthocyanins, such as luteolinidin and apigeninidin, and appears to induce apoptosis and inhibit cell proliferation in cancer cells through the stimulation of various apoptosis promoter genes and the downregulation of certain apoptosis inhibitor genes. In addition, due to the strong antioxidant nature of the phytochemicals, these compounds are able to scavenge free radicals and prevent tissue damage. Also, intake of this supplement modulates the immune system by both increasing the activity of natural killer (NK) cells and initiating the activation of macrophages.

Obviously, this should provide a useful lead to finding solution to the problem of cancer if it is diligently pursued. Numerous articles are being published to show the potential of Sorghum Grain for solving cancer problems. An excerpt from one the articles is quoted below:
Taken together, these results indicated, for the first time, that inhibition of either HepG2 or Caco-2 cell growth by phenolic extracts from 13 selected sorghum accessions was due to cytostatic and apoptotic but not cytotoxic mechanisms, suggesting some specialty sorghums are a valuable, functional food, providing sustainable phenolics for potential cancer prevention.Sorghum Phenolic Compounds Are Associated with Cell Growth Inhibition through Cell Cycle Arrest and Apoptosis in Human Hepatocarcinoma and Colorectal Adenocarcinoma Cells – PubMed Phenolic compounds in some specialty sorghums have been associated with cancer prevention. However, direct evidence and the underlying mechanisms for this are mostly unknown. In this study, phenolics were extracted from 13 selected sorghum accessions with black pericarp while F10000 hybrid with whit … https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34062914/

Following are some links that are strongly suggesting that Sorghum has a very potential for solving cancer problems:Phenolic Compounds in Whole Grain Sorghum and Their Health Benefits Sorghum grain (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) is a staple food grown across the globe, and is mainly cultivated in the semi-arid regions of Africa and Asia. Recently, sorghum grain is increasingly utilized for human consumption, due to the gluten-free nature and potential phenolic-induced health benefits. Sorghum grain is rich in bioactive phenolic compounds, such as ferulic acid, gallic acid, vanillic acid, luteolin, and apigenin, 3-deoxyanthocyanidins (3-DXA), which are known to provide many health benefits, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, anti-diabetic, and anti-atherogenic activities. Given an increasing trend of sorghum consumption for humans, this article reviews the content and profile of phenolics in sorghum. It covers aspects of their health benefits and explores their mechanisms of action. The impact of thermal processing, such as boiling, steaming, roasting, and extrusion on sorghum phenolics is also discussed. Compelling data suggest the biological functions of sorghum phenolics, however, further investigations appear warrant to clarify the gap in the current research, and identify promising research topics in future. https://www.mdpi.com/2304-8158/10/8/1921/htmAnticancer Activity of a Novel High Phenolic Sorghum Bran in Human Colon Cancer Cells Human colon cancer is the third leading cause of mortality in the United States and worldwide. Chemoprevention using diet is widely accepted as a promising approach for cancer management. Numerous population studies indicate a negative correlation between the incidence of colon cancer and consumption of whole grains with a high content of bioactive phenolic compounds. In the current study, we evaluated the anticancer properties of a high phenolic sorghum bran extract prepared using 70% ethanol with 5% citric acid solvent at room temperature. A significant dose-dependent suppression of cell proliferation was observed in human colon cancer cells treated with the high phenolic sorghum bran extract. Apoptosis and S phase growth arrest were induced, while cell migration and invasion were inhibited by this treatment; these effects were accompanied by altered expression of apoptosis, cell cycle, and metastasis-regulating genes. We also found that the high phenolic sorghum bran extract stimulated DNA damage in association with induction of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and c-Jun-NH2-terminal kinase (JNK) and subsequent expression of activating transcription factor 3 (ATF3). The present study expands our understanding of the potential use of high phenolic sorghum bran to prevent human colon cancer. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/omcl/2020/2890536/
I believe that with the above submission, we should be nearer to finding some leads to solving cancer problems.
