For nearly 100 years, carrot (juicing) has been an essential part of many anti-cancer programs. In fact, it has saved peoples lives by helping to rid the body of tumors while strengthening the immune system. And now, thanks to modern science, we have found proof about why it works.
The magical connection between carrots and cancer cell death:
According to a recent study, a natural substance in raw carrots called falcarinol – can significantly reduce your risk for cancer. Studies have shown that falcarinol slows the growth of cancer cells, making cancer less likely to invade the body. Laboratory rats fed a diet containing raw carrots or isolated falcarinol were a third less likely to develop full-scale, chemically-induced tumors than those in the control group.
A team of researchers, from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in England and Denmark, found the natural pesticide (falcarinol) reduced the risk of cancer. In nature, falcarinol protects the roots of carrots from fungal disease. And, the research confirmed that it has a more powerful effect than beta carotene.
The study just mentioned was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry is significant and may help point people in the right direction as far as the valuable role diet has in preventing cancer growth.
When will conventional doctors simply read the science?
