Karela, the Cancer Killer


The bitter-tasting Indian Karela, bitter gourd, has always been known to be highly beneficial against diabetes, high blood pressure, heartburn, cholesterol and ulcers. Scientists from Saint Louis University have now discovered that it is also a giant slayer of breast cancer cells. An extract not only killed human breast cancer cells but also prevented them from multiplying.

Professor Ratan Ray, lead researcher, says she was surprised by the finding. The next step is to test the extract in an animal model and, if results are positive, human trials could follow.

Indian women need not wait for the trial reports. Karela is a commonly available and does not cost much. They should make it an integral part of their diet straightaway.

Karela,the Cancer Killer, is not 'humble' anymore!

Since my husband has diabetes, we often include Karela in our meals. Now it seems there is another reason to do so!

It is good news and information.As far as I am concerned,Karela has been on our menu on regular basis for a long time.
But, this information must be passed on to the "burger" generation.
