New research has shown that several natural compounds found in food, including turmeric, apple peels, and red grapes, could prevent the growth of prostate cancer, the most common cancer in U.S. men. The research uses a novel analytical approach to screen numerous plant-based chemicals instead of testing a single agent as many studies do, discovering specific combinations that shrink prostate cancer tumors. After screening a natural compound library, the researchers developed an unbiased look at combinations of nutrients that have a better effect on prostate cancer than existing drugs. The researchers were able to inhibit tumor growth in mice without any toxicity. During the past decade, other cancer research has shown that the chemicals found in foods such as turmeric, apple peels and green tea could be beneficial against cancer. These compounds reduce inflammation within the body and this reduction […]
