Black rasberries can now be considered a serious contender for fighting colon cancer. New research has just been released showing how black rasberries can be used as a natural colon cancer remedy. The study was published in the November issue of the journal Cancer Prevention Research.
“We saw the black raspberry as a natural product, very powerful, and easy to access,” said the study’s lead author Dr. Wancai Yang, assistant professor of pathology at the UIC College of Medicine. Colon cancer is the second highest cause of cancer-related death, and the third most common cancer. Results from the study found that the antioxidants in black rasberries reduced tumors by 60%. This study is on of the first to look at the connection between black rasberries and will be instrumental in motivating further research on the topic.
