Pomegranate for Prostate: Extract combats cancer cells, say researchers

By | July 28th, 2015|HNU Archive|

The extract or juice of the pomegranate shows major promise to combat prostate cancer, say researchers at University of Wisconsin Medical School. Earlier research has shown that the pomegranate is rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, and is effective against tumours in mouse skin.

Selenium cuts two common cancers

By | July 24th, 2015|HNU Archive|

A new study says that higher intake of selenium may reduce colorectal cancer risk. In the past, selenium has been associated with cancer protection, particularly prostate, lung and colon cancers. To gain better insight into selenium’s anti-cancer role, researchers from the University of Arizona analyzed data from three completed clinical trials, each with several hundred [...]

Good Fats Good for Prostate: Omega-3s appear to slow tumour growth

By | July 24th, 2015|HNU Archive|

Researchers investigating the role of fatty acids in the aggressiveness of early stage prostate cancer have found that higher concentrations of polyunsaturated fat, such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, were linked to less aggressive tumour growth. “Research has shown that populations with a low-fat diet have lower rates of prostate cancer, although studies about [...]

Diet Kicks Prostate Cancer: Vegan diet with supplements can inhibit tumours

Slow Prostate Cancer: Tea compounds inhibit tumour growth

By | June 28th, 2015|HNU Archive|

Researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles were able to detect tea polyphenols in prostate tissue after a very limited consumption of tea. More importantly, the scientists found that prostate cancer cells grew more slowly when placed in a medium containing blood of men who had consumed either green or black tea for [...]
