Grape extract kills cancer cells

Resveretrol — found in grapes — Previous research has shown grapeseed extract has an effect on skin, breast, bowel, lung, stomach and prostate cancer cells in the laboratory.  It can also reduce the size of breast tumours in rats and skin tumours in mice.  However, the University of Kentucky study is the first to test its impact on a blood cancer.  Lead researcher Professor Xianglin Shi said: “These results could have implications for the incorporation of agents such as grapeseed extract into prevention or treatment of haematological (blood) malignancies and possibly other cancers.  “What everyone seeks is an agent that has an effect on cancer cells but leaves normal cells alone, and this shows that grapeseed extract fits into this category.”      more from BBC
