Natural ingredient in peaches may stop spread of killer disease cancer. Eating 3 peaches everyday could keeps breast cancer away, it induces metastatic breast cancer cell death, says food science researcher Giuliana Noratto at Washington State University. Professor Giuliana Noratto in concert with researchers at Texas A & M said that when exposed to polyphenol chemicals in peaches, cell signals become activated to “drive them to commit suicide”.
Compounds in peaches prevent breast cancer without harming healthy cellular activity. Peaches, considered to belong to the “stone fruit” family because of their large stone-like seed, contain potent polyphenol activity known as chlorogenic and neochlorogenic compounds. While these compounds are present in other stone fruits, they are of particularly high concentration in peaches.
Noratto’s studies have confirmed that these two polyphenols are the compounds responsible for killing cancerous breast cells.
