The extract of bitter melon, growing in the tropics, can help against breast cancer, according to researchers at the University of Colorado. This plant contains substances that can stop the reproduction of cancer cells and trigger cell death.
Bitter melon was tested only on animals so far and researchers warn they now can’t say if it could cure cancer in humans. Potentially, a lot of plants are cancer remedies, but only few can be actually used as anti-cancer medication after thorough research. It takes years of efforts and tests. Researchers do hope, though, that bitter melon extract will soon be a part of breast cancer diet.
