GOD Provides HERBS for FOOD

In the creation of the universe, God had provided every thing necessary for the survival of mankind, including herbs. And God said,"Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be meat" (Genesis 1:29).

In verse 30, God continues: "And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, where in there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so."

God specified in Genesis 1:29 that herb bearing seed is upon the face of all the earth. God had spread the herb bearing seed throughout the whole universe and not confined to any specific spot so that all the people can share the goodness of the herbs. In the course of time, man learns to barter for the things that he needs, and that is the start of commerce.

Man is commanded to eat the herb of the field (Genesis 3:18). To all animals, every fowl of the air and every creeping creature, the herb is food for meat. Biblically, the Israelites tithed their herbs (Luke 11:42). The Pharisees tithed mint, rue and all manner of herbs according to Luke. It is also said that those who are weak eat herbs.

Biblically, the Israelites tithed their herbs (Luke 11:42). The Pharisees tithed mint, rue and all manner of herbs according to Luke.



After the Great Flood God allowed man to eat meat but with restrictions.

"Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs. But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood" (Gen. 9:3-4 ).


More and more people are turning to alternative medicine to cure diseases. Use of herbs to help alleviate suffering is fairly common.

The word "herb" means "A plant producing shoots of only annual duration, herbage, grass and other green food for cattle; a plant having medicinal, culinary or aromatic properties."

Sometimes the leaves of the plant are used, while at other times, the root, leaves, bark, hulls, flowers, fruit, root tubers, berry, grass, or husk are used.


Lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus), a native of India, is widely used in Thai and Vietnamese cooking. Lemon grass is a perennial, which means once you plant it, the grass comes back year after year. Depending on the area you live in the plant will go dormant in the winter. In harsh climates the plant will need to be potted and wintered indoors. This aromatic herb is used in Caribbean and many types of Asian cooking and has become very popular in the United States. Most of the commercial crops for the United States are grown in California and Florida. Lemon grass is also used for medicinal purposes.

Fresh Lemon Grass Drink Causes Apoptosis to Cancer Cells

Apoptosis - noun: a type of cell death in which the cell uses specialized cellular machinery to kill itself; a cell suicide mechanism that enables metazoans to control cell number and eliminate cells that threaten the animal's survival.

Fresh lemon grass fields in Israel become Mecca for cancer patients


A drink with as little as one gram of lemon grass contains enough citral to prompt cancer cells to commit suicide in the test tube. Israeli researchers find way to make cancer cells self-destruct - Ben Gurion University

At first, Benny Zabidov, an Israeli agriculturalist who grows greenhouses full of lush spices on a pastoral farm in Kfar Yedidya in the Sharon region, couldn't understand why so many cancer patients from around the country were showing up on his doorstep asking for fresh lemon grass. It turned out that their doctors had sent them. 'They had been told to drink eight glasses of hot water with fresh lemon grass steeped in it on the days that they went for their radiation and chemotherapy treatments,' Zabidov told ISRAEL21c. 'And this is the place you go to in Israel for fresh lemon grass.'

It all began when researchers at Ben Gurion University of the Negev discovered last year that the lemon aroma in herbs like lemon grass kills cancer cells in vitro, while leaving healthy cells unharmed. The research team was led by Dr. Rivka Ofir and Prof. Yakov Weinstein, incumbent of the Albert Katz Chair in Cell-Differentiation and Malignant Diseases, from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at BGU.

Citral is the key component that gives the lemony aroma and taste in several herbal plants such as lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus), melissa (Melissa officinalis) and verbena (Verbena officinalis).

According to Ofir, the study found that citral causes cancer cells to 'commit suicide: using apoptosis, a mechanism called programmed cell death.' A drink with as little as one gram of lemon grass contains enough citral to prompt the cancer cells to commit suicide in the test tube.

The BGU investigators checked the influence of the citral on cancerous cells by adding them to both cancerous cells and normal cells that were grown in a petri dish. The quantity added in the concentrate was equivalent to the amount contained in a cup of regular tea using one gram of lemon herbs in hot water. While the citral killed the cancerous cells, the normal cells remained unharmed.

The findings were published in the scientific journal Planta Medica, which highlights research on alternative and herbal remedies. Shortly afterwards, the discovery was featured in the popular Israeli press.

Science is making progress in helping to eliminate diseases but there are yet many hurdles to overcome. Discoveries are made sometimes through fluke shots. No matter how clever and intelligent man is, he still finds himself at a loss over a great many things. A fair amount of new discoveries has been made by science in the use of herbs as vital to man's health. From the first book of Genesis, we are already told that every herb bearing seed shall be meat to us, "And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be meat " (Genesis 1:29).

Maybe man should heed God's words and let herbs be our meat. God is very fair in the distribution of herbs through the face of all the earth. No country seems to be without its herbs. Praise and thank the Lord for His fairness and righeousness in dealing with His children throughout the universe. It seems that vegetarians have a point here that they could survive on fruits, vegetables and grains of seed. Man in the Old Testament lived longer, for example, Adam lived nine hundred and thirty years (930 years) (Genesis 5:5) while Methuselah lived nine hundred sixty and nine years (969 years) (Genesis 5:27)



After the great flood, man was allowed to eat meat with restrictions, and that is meat without blood: "Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat" (Genesis 9:3-4).

David lived only 70 years and was considered to have "died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and honour:" (1 Chronicles 29:28). Psalms 90:10 tells us, "The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away."

In the future, there is very much hope that herbs will lead man to discover many more cures for the ills of mankind. God had at the very beginning of creation of the universe indicated that herbs would be meat for mankind. Heed the words of God or face the consequence!

Thanks for the information that lemon grass keeps mosquitoes and snakes away.

karanga on April 01, 2012:

hello einron, it's good u have written on a herb we have @ the backyard of our house i.e Uganda(E.Africa). this herb is great in healing many ailments, but there is another thing it does that people are not aware; it keeps mosquitoes and snakes a way. Africans wake up and plant as many lemon grass around your houses as possible and prevent malaria the number one killer disease in Africa and snake bites. BELIEVE ME IT WORKS. God does miracles through small and easy things and man in his search only complicates things. Let us heed Gods ways or else we suffer. GOB Bless.

Very glad that you are a Christian and that you believe God gives us herbs to heal us. Please continue to believe in God. God bless.

Healthynow76 on October 06, 2011:

Great Article! I am a Christian who believes that God gave us herbs to heal our bodies. God knew that after sin, we would have to deal with pain and sicknesses. That is why we gave us herbs to ease the effects of sin on our bodies. Sin as we know causes sickness. Another point, Apoptosis is a natural process that happens in our body, when our Immune and Endocrine systems are working properly. I discovered that the brain alerts the adrenal glands to secrete the special hormone that naturally induces apoptosis. In my case I developed Cancer because my immune system was suppressed for various reasons, and my endocrine system was out of whack. I refused conventional treatments and I am healing naturally with great results. The answer to cancer in my life is dealing with my Immune and Endocrine systems and get it working properly so that it can do its job. However I don't consider Cancer a disease, but a sign of an inefficient immune system. I am thankful to God to be here.

Excellent article, I have too many words to try to express my thoughts. Suffice it to say, I agree 100%, and when I began to seek alternatives for a chronic illness, I began to find. I am a firm Believer that God designed this world to help take care of us, if we replenish it and use it as instructed. There is no true excuse for poverty, illness, poor crops, etc. It is all "curable". Our land can be healed--as well as mankind. Lemon Grass...another on my shopping list. I am especially thankful to Ann for adding the other benefits of LG.

Much gratitude!

Thanks for commenting about Citralife lemmongrass tea that helps you cancer friend. You have proof that it does help to drink the lemmongrass.

God, indeed helps the poor who cannot afford a high price

for the treatment. All glory to God.

ann on August 16, 2010:

i can testify for Citralife lemongrass tea.I agree that it really helps cancer patient. from real testimony from my cancer friend, it was recommended from other cancer patient to drink lemongrass tea. after they did chemotherapy, instead of taking 10 days to recover to normal blood count(anc etc), it took only 3 days by drinking lemongrass. Those who did chemo, try first and measure your blood count don't just simply disagree. Anyway, citralife tea is so cheap like rm16 per pack only. try the fresh one also works but have to use 10 times more the equivalent weight of the dried citralife.. also works for arthritis, joint paint, frozen shoulder, eczema, water retention, itchy skin, piles, incontinence.. its just too good that God provide such a cheap solution for human being ..

einron (author) from Toronto, Ontario, CANADA on August 08, 2010:

You are most welcome. Lemon Grass originally comes from S. Asia and naturally,they use it in their cooking. Glad that you are able to get in NYC most supermarkets.

Of course, prevention is better than cure.

BkCreative from Brooklyn, New York City on August 08, 2010:

Thanks for this brilliant hub about lemongrass - I have found so many other cultures on earth to use it regularly in their cuisine - but not in Western cooking. I'm so glad that now it can be found fairly easily in NYC in most supermarket.

Thanks for the photos and the many health benefits. All we need for good health has already been provided for us. But we have to prevent poor health - not destroy ourselves and then look for a magic cure. Prevention is key.

Rated up of course.

einron (author) from Toronto, Ontario, CANADA on May 09, 2010:


More and more cures are found in many herbal remedies and people are looking at alternatives for cures in diseases.

I love the smell of lemon grass. especially in curries. Malaysians, Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesians use them in their cooking.


frogyfish from Central United States of America on May 08, 2010:

Thank you for informative hub - there are so many herbal remedies becoming proven to kill cancer cells. And much more investigation needs to continue this cycle. Besides that I literally am addicted to the scent of lemon grass essential oil - but I cannot use it on my skin as it breaks me out royally! Appreciate your research and sharing here!

YOU WROTE: Note the Dates of the Articles I quote as against yours.

RESPONSE: The findings of one study, unless explicitly stated, are not disproved or overwritten by the findings of later studies. I was trying to say that if you are a proponent of lemongrass, it is in the best interest of the reader and behooves you as a writer to explain what risks are involved along with the believed benefits. I was in effect asking you to take some responsibility by presenting both sides of the argument, or at the least a disclaimer, rather than copying and pasting slogans at me.

These three proofs you've presented are all second-hand references to your original study, not new ones. And I must say it's rather depressing to see people peddling "Citralife" or whatever they're calling it. Snake oil for the desperate.

The first study, as I tried to explain, was conducted in a laboratory setting on lymphomas in petri dishes. Citral causing apoptosis in direct contact with lymphoma cells does not necessarily mean that it will cause apoptosis in tissue cells within the human blood stream when citral is in a metabolized state. And since nothing in any of your studies explicitly states otherwise, the difference should be told for the reader's benefit.

YOU WROTE: Cancer patients in Israel are encouraged by their doctors to drink fresh lemongrass tea on the days they go in for radiation or chemotherapy treatments to help the healing process.

RESPONSE: And there was a time doctors sent people suffering from bronchial infections to the local tobbaconist. Common practice does not make said practice correct or the best strategy. Aside from that, after having been pumped full of poison and taken enough radiation to glow in the dark, I do not consider either to be a "healing process".

Healing is what comes after the body has been pushed to its absolute limits in the hope that the cancer will die before the host. And if this is the case, how is lemongrass anything more miraculous than another herbal supplement?

Citralife - A Cure for Cancer?

Citral from Lemongrass

Just one serving of Citralife matches new cancer studies from Ben Gurion University, Middle East. Citral is recommended by Doctors and Physicians in Middle East for cancer patients.

Doctors and researchers have discovered that 1 gm of lemongrass contains enough Citral to prompt cancer cells to commit suicide! That's the same amount of Citral from 1 teaspoon of Citralife lemongrass tea. Citral has been shown to cause apoptosis (self destruct) in cancer cells.

Cancer patients in Israel are encouraged by their doctors to drink fresh lemongrass tea on the days they go in for radiation or chemotherapy treatments to help the healing process.

Jarn from Sebastian, Fl on February 13, 2010:

Einron. I think your hub is well written, but am sorry to say that I cannot thank you for the contribution. I am currently in my second year of cancer treatment and my chances of survival are dropping like a stone. In that time, many well-meaning friends have suggested homeopathic cures. Garlic treatments were commonly suggested, all sorts of teas, and a very good friend linked this hub to me just today.

Being the scientific minded person I am, I tracked down the study. This is it, I believe. Planta Med. 2005 May;71(5):484-8. Links

Citral is a new inducer of caspase-3 in tumor cell lines.Dudai N, Weinstein Y, Krup M, Rabinski T, Ofir R.

Hazeva Research and Development Center, Jacob Blaustein Institute for Desert Research, Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Beer Sheva, Israel.

The qoutation that citral causes cancer cells to cause suicide in their test-tubes you've correctly presented, but the study qoutation that "a drop of gasoline will kill cancer cells in a test tube too," is conspicuously absent from your hub.

The actual findings of the test were that "The apoptotic effect of citral depended on the alpha, beta-unsaturated aldehyde group." The difference between an alpha and beta-unsaturated aldehyde group is principally the acidity. Citral was dissolving cancer cells on direct contact, much as citric acid and other abrasives would. It has not been shown to have any effect in a metabolized state.

I respectfully submit a counterstudy:

Natl Toxicol Program Tech Rep Ser. 2003 Jan;(505):1-268. Links

NTP toxicology and carcinogenesiss studies of citral (microencapsulated) (CAS No. 5392-40-5) in F344/N rats and B6C3F1 mice (feed studies).[No authors listed]

National Toxicology Program, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709, USA

This study was designed to study the effects of citral consumption on mice, rats, and hamsters. First of all, it was found to be lethal in surprisingly low concentrations, though how that would equate to a full-grown human being is debatable. It was conclusively shown to cause malignant lymphoma when administered in low dosages to all female test subjects. Ovarian cancer in other words.

I am sorry if I sound harsh, and I know you mean well, but the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. I have known other cancer patients who believed such natural treatments would work and are now dead because they ignored conventional treatment methods. While the deceased are partly to blame, their blood is also firmly on the hands of those who gave life-changing advice without absolute authority over the subject. Perhaps you might consider placing a small warning at the bottom of your article for cancer patients to consult with their oncologist before trying such treatments?

i believe there was a protective covering of the earth before the flood that when removed exposed us to radiation,reduced the oxygen content of the atmosphere and kept the magnetic field of the earth at an optimum.all of which were essential in the greater longevity of mankind and likely this caused all plants to be more nutritious.

Thanks for commenting. I cannot answer you for I do not know much about the environment to answer your question.


Michael Haley on January 01, 2010:

I wonder if something changed from the flood. Water fell from the expanse in the sky for the first time possibly removing a protective layer causing people to age faster. From then on, people lived much shorter lives (with the protective layer removed exposing us to more radiation). Meat given soon after may have been to meet a new biological nutritional need because of the new atmosphere.

This herb contains an organic component, Silymarin, is an excellent natural antioxidant that fights against the infection in liver and promoted better health of diseased liver and aids in faster recovery of hepatitis.

There are some other herbs which can efficiently contribute in curing the problem of hepatitis; out of this range, licorice roots, ginseng, ginger roots, Melia fruit, Privt fruit, Lycium berry, Astragalus Root, and, Andrographis eserves first point mention for their instant effect on this fatal disorder.

However, these herbs in right dose needs to be consumed by the hepatitis patient and a goof herbal therapist can only provide right procedure to take the herbal remedies out of herbs.


A diet enriches with green leafy vegetables, essential fatty acids, vitamin C and E rich diets keeps liver in comfortable condition and helps in faster recovery from this disorder."

You are right. God has a cure for everything He created. Hezekiah was the only man whose life was prolonged for 15 years. It was so because of his belief in God.

Lemon grass is a prolific type of herb. The Thais, Malays, Vietnamese use a lot in their cooking. My brother has a constant supply of lemon grass in his fridge to make lemon grass drinks.

It's great that you responded. Many have read but few have responded. Thanks. Lemon grass costs very little in the Chinese supermarkets, only 3 stalks cost only $1.00 and you need only a small amount for the drink.

Good that you are willing to try what seems to be promising. There is a doctor in our church, and he recently found out that he has cancer of the throat. He has to undergo chemotherapy and he is taking lemon grass drinks. My brother who has cancer of the colon is also taking lemon grass. He had a relapse but now the doctor says he does not have to undergo chemotherapy.

Read my hub on "A test of Faith".

dayzeebee, Thank you for you comments. We also grow lemon grass in our garden in Malaysia and my grandma used it in cooking curries. In Canada, lemon grass is used in Thai and Korean restaurants. It adds a lot of flavour to the food. The taste is very strong and distinct.

My brother who had colorectal cancer (now in remission) bought some fresh lemon grass and gave me a stem. I did try drinking the hot water steeped in lemon grass and find it rather pleasant in taste. The other brother who has prostate cancer bought lemon grass in powder form from a Vietnamese shop in Vancouver. It is quite cheap.

God bless.
