Asparagus therapy??

I received an e-mail from someone touting asparagus as a cancer remedy, four tablespoons twice per day (pureed). I know that this can't hurt my mother (cancer patient - stage IV lung cancer) but has anyone had any experience or beneficial effects from actually trying this? Any input would be sincerely appreciated.

I got an email like this a couple of days ago. According to Snopes website, this email has been in circulation on the internet since 2006. 

According to Snopes website, it is undetermined on whether or not asparagus therapy has any benefits for cancer patients.  Snopes claims that there was a report of an article written in the Cancer News Journal in December 1979 but the article cannot be found.

You can locate the information that I found on Snopes by going to:
