Anthocyanins impair cancer

The term anthocyanin was initially coined to indicate the substance responsible for the color of cornflower: it derives from the Greek term anthos=flower, and kuanos=blue, and refers to a group of water-soluble pigments responsible for red, pink, mauve, purple, blue, or violet color of most flower and fruits. These compounds act as potent antioxidants and phosphodiesterase inhibitors, thus being particularly effective in the amelioration of capillary resistance and permeability.

Studies on rats and human cells found anthocyanins notably slowed the growth of colon cancer cells.

In some experiments, the researchers from Ohio State University saw cancer growth not just slowed, but as many as 20% of the cells killed.

For instance, anthocyanin pigments obtained from black carrots and radishes slowed the growth of cancer cells by between 50 to 80%.

But compounds from chokeberries for instance killed up to a fifth of existing cells, without impacting upon healthy ones.

Triphala active against pancreatic cancer

Triphala consists of the fruits of three plants from India:

Emblica officinalis
Terminalia bellirica
Terminalia chebula

The team fed mice grafted with human pancreatic tumours a triphala solution five days per week.

After four weeks they compared the tumour size and proteins contents of the tumours with those of a control group of mice that had not received the triphala.

They found that the tumours in triphala-treated mice were half the size of those in the untreated mice.

The also found the treated mice tumour cells had higher levels of proteins associated with apoptosis - the process by the which the body normally disposes of damaged, old of unneeded cells.

Further testing revealed that triphala had also activated tumour-suppressor genes, but did not negatively affect normal pancreatic cells.

Flash player recently stopped playing sound in firefox and would not play video continuously. The solution for me was to uninstall flash. The problem was resolved after a new installation.
