Pomegranates Linked to Breast Cancer

Researchers are excited over a prospective new treatment for breast cancer from the pomegranate fruit.

A study led by Israeli researchers found that pomegranate seed oil can trigger apoptosis in breast cancer cells, a process that causes cancerous cells to self-destruct. Dr. Ephraim Lansky, lead researcher in two studies at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, also noted that pomegranate juice appears to destroy estrogen-dependent breast cancer cells, while leaving normal breast cells alone.

In an initial study, breast cancer cells were grown in the laboratory and then treated for three days with pomegranate seed oil. Researchers found that apoptasis occurred in 37 - 56 percent of the cancer cells.

A second study exposed cancerous breast cells and normal breast cells to pomegranate wine and pomegranate peel extracts. A majority of the normal breast cells remained unaffected by the pomegranate, while more than 75% of the estrogen dependent cancer cells were destroyed.

While more studies are needed to test the effectiveness and safety of pomegranate oil as an anti-tumor agent, researchers believe it may be a new path towards developing anticancer drugs from a natural compound.
