Pomegranate juice drinkers may have natural protection against advanced breast cancer

FoodFacts.com found some exciting information today that can bring new ammunition for women in the war against breast cancer!

There’s a new study that has been released by the A. Rocha Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience at the University of California, Riverside that has linked drinking pomegranate juice or eating the fruit may reduce the risk of the advancement of breast cancer in the human body.

There are three components of the pomegranate fruit and its juice that appear to be responsible for these findings. They are luteolin, ellagic acid and punicic acid. These are the components that are thought to be responsible for slowing the cellular and molecular processes that can cause breast cancer to progress to advanced stages. The juice seemed to be able to decrease cancer cell migration in the body. It was only observed to affect cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells alone. Another exciting part of the findings was that pomegranate fruit and juice seemed to inhibit the attraction of breast cancer cells to bones.

Researchers are encouraged that the ability of pomegranate fruit and juice to slow down the metastasis of breast cancer can lead to the discovery a new treatments that could potentially prevent cancer progression.

FoodFacts.com knows that our community is aware of the serious threat that breast cancer poses to women all over the world. In the United States alone, the disease is expected to affect over 200,000 women this year alone. Over 18% of the women diagnosed are expected to have fatal outcomes from the disease. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and so informing our community about the possible effects of the pomegranate fruit and its juice is a great way to call attention to the progress being made every day in the worldwide fight against this severe disease and its importance to women.
