Pomegranate

Pomegranates for breasts

Pomegranates have been shown to contain some powerful antioxidant chemicals. Now some of these compounds known as ellagitannins have shown qualities that may help prevent hormone dependent breast cancer. Researchers tested ten of these compounds and found that six of them blocked the enzyme aromatase, which promotes production of oestrogen. The most potent compound urolithin B (UB) blocked multiple osterogen producing mechanisms that promote the growth of breast cancer. They also found that UB stopped oestrogen dependent cancer cells from multiplying. Does this mean governments should be funding a “pomegranate in every home” campaign? Not really; this study was done using purified chemicals in a lab so whether humans eating pomegranates will get the same benefits remains unknown. In the meantime, pomegranates are certainly healthy and definitely yummy, so plan your pomegranate party now. NOTE: the pomegranate growers association (is there one?) have not sponsored this column.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
