Pomegranate juice shows potential to slow cancer

Pomegranate juice shows potential to slow cancer

Pomegranate juice could slow the spread of cancer, research suggests. University of California scientists found that particular ingredients in the juice - such as fatty acids - slowed the spread of the disease from prostate cancer to the bone. Previous research that claimed pomegranate juice could slow the disease was controversial as researchers did not define the biological mechanism behind the effects.

From the Daily Mail:

Pomegranate juice could slow the spread of cancer, research suggests.

Scientists have found components in the juice which stop the movement of cancer cells, and weaken their attraction to chemical signals which cause them to spread.

They found that particular ingredients in the juice - such as fatty acids - slowed the spread of the disease from prostate cancer to the bone.

The team, from the University of California, hope the fruit will have a similar effect on other cancers. Previous research that claimed pomegranate juice could slow the disease was controversial as the UCLA researchers did not define the biological mechanism behind the effects.
