According to research conducted by the University of Arizona Cancer Center and the Department of Nutritional Sciences the University of Arizona, cruciferous can inhibit the proliferation of breast cancer cells.
Tucson, AZ (Merxwire) – Breast cancer is common cancer in women. According to statistics, in 2020, 2.3 million women worldwide have been diagnosed with breast cancer. A study published in Nutrition Reviews in the United States pointed out that cruciferous is rich in phytochemicals, and certain organic sulfide transformed by phytochemicals can protect cells and inhibit the proliferation of breast cancer cells.
This study was conducted by Dr. Cynthia A. Thomson and his research team. The researchers observed in animal experiments that after ingesting cruciferous vegetables, Diindolylmethane (DIM), which is converted from phytochemicals, has high activity and is easily affected by biological In all organs the organism, the DIM content in the liver is found to be the highest.
The researchers used rats as the experimental model. During the study, a powerful carcinogen was used to induce mutations in mammary cancer cells in rats, and DIM was fed every other day. Finally, the researchers observed that the mammary cancer cells in the rats had apoptosis after taking DIM.
How to prevent cancer? The Stopping Cancer before it starts, published by the National Cancer Institute in the United States, pointed out that 77% of cancer roots are related to lifestyle, 14% are related to genetic risk factors, and the remaining 9% are related to environmental risks.
