A “newly discovered chemical” in food called Apigenin ( a type of flavonoid that is high in celery and chamomile) has been demonstrated in lab tests to be “cytotoxic” (cell killing) to Pancreatic and G.I. tract Cancer cells. The scientists have suggested that Apigenin has a potential protective role against these extremely aggressive forms of Cancer. After 45yrs of studying health, I am glad to see that health professionals and the scientific community are analyzing foods and their “chemistry” as opposed to only trying to make “chemicals” that have a beneficial affect on our health. It’s my opinion, in the future we will see more “newly discovered chemicals” in our food and how they benefit and protect us.
Remember…”Food is Medicine and Medicine is you Food….”we are what we eat”!!!
