In addition to parasitic plant known as the existence of which is often considered to be damaging other plants, parasites proved efficacious against the cancer. Even this plant has long been used as materials for producing various traditional medicinal herb in many places. According to Wikipedia, Loranthus is a genus of parasitic plants that grow on the branches of woody trees. It belongs to the family of Loranthaceae (the showy mistletoe family).  In most earlier systematic treatments it contains all mistletoe species with bisexual flowers (though some species have reversed to unisexual flowers), while most modern systematists treat it as a monotypic genus with the only species of Loranthus europaeus Jacq. – the summer mistletoe or European yellow mistletoe. In contrast to the wellknown European or Christmas mistletoe (Viscum album L., Santalaceae or Viscaceae) this species is deciduous. The systematic situation of Loranthus is not entirely clear, and some showy mistletoes in Asia may be true parts of this genus.
These plants have unisexual flowers that contain seeds of the fruit sap. His life is stuck in the branches of other trees, and do not require soil to live. That is why plants are called parasites. Breeding occur through animals or birds that eat the seeds of this parasites tree.
Loranthus in tea tree, one of them named Scurulla atropurpurea (BL), a medicinal plant which is known to the public as a barrier to malignant cancer. Chemical constituents contained in tea leaves and stems of this parasite which are alkaloid compounds, flavonoids, glycosides, triterpen, saponins and tannins. Through research it is known, the activity of asparagines in the parasite tree of tea plant can hydrolyze asparagines. Asparagines is an enzyme that plays a catalyst hydrolize asparagines into aspartic acid and ammonia. So that cancer cells lack asparagines resulting cell death.
