Numerous times food has proven to be the best medicine for treating lethal illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure, and even cancers. A recent study conducted by the university researchers in Xi’an, China, has convincingly showed that apple extract kills cancer cells, thus outperforming conventional chemotherapy!
Actually, compounds in apples known as oligosaccharides were found to destroy up to 46 percent of human colon cancer cells. They outperform common chemotherapy, and even more so, they leave the toxic adverse effects behind!
The study abstract reveals this key point: “It is reported that apple polysaccharide can prevent colon cancer growth and impede colon cancer progression. The aim of this study is to explore the effect of apple oligosaccharide on the cellular viability of human colon carcinoma cells (or HT29 cells) and its mechanism.
