In the case of breast cancer, the daily consumption of a handful of walnuts can significantly change gene expression and slow down the tumor growth
Scientists from Marshall University (USA) carried out tests on mice, which revealed the ability of walnut to inhibit the growth of breast tumors and inhibit the development of breast cancer. The results of their study published the journal Nutrition Research, writes Newsyou.
Project Manager Dr. Elaine Hardman spoke about the impact of the nut:
“Consumption of walnut may act as a factor able to suppress the growth and development of breast cancer. We found that eating 57 grams of walnuts a day for about two weeks can significantly change gene expression when diagnosed with breast cancer”.
After successful experiments with mice, scientists have invited for trials of women diagnosed with breast cancer. In one of them women with breast cancer randomly divided into two groups consumed the walnuts and not consumed. Eat nuts women started after the biopsy and used them in the past two weeks in the amount of 57 grams per day.
Two weeks later in the group consumed the walnuts, the analysis revealed the body women the process of apoptosis (cell death) and adhesion (the ability of cells to communicate) of cancer cells, and suppress signaling pathways leading to migration of tumor cells in the body.
The researchers concluded that eating walnuts “can inhibit the growth and survival of breast cancer, reduce the risk of breast cancer and the likelihood of recurrence.” At the same time, scientists note that for the final verdict it is necessary to conduct more extensive research.
We will remind, Ukrainians told that in fact our bottles with drinking water.
