Dr Gary Stoner, professor of public health and researcher at the Comprehensive
Cancer Center at Ohio State University states that
?Black raspberries are loaded with nutrients and phytochemicals that may prevent
the development of cancer?. Dr Stoner should know, he has coauthored a number of
studies demonstrating a powerful protective benefit from this tasty berry.
In his most recent work which was presented this week at the American Chemical
Society?s 233rd Annual Meeting and Exposition in Chicago, he has demonstrated a
very powerful protective effect. In this study rats were exposed to a noxious
chemical-substance guaranteed to cause esophageal and/or colon cancer. The rats
were split into two groups; one group was fed the regular diet, the other group
was fed the same diet but with the addition of a Black Raspberry Extract. Those
lucky rats fed the Black Raspberry Extract developed up to 80% fewer colon
tumors and up to 60% fewer esophageal tumors than non-supplemented rats. Based
on these findings the scientists have begun tests in people with Barrett?s
esophagus (a condition seen in people with GERD that increases the risk of
esophageal cancer) and precancerous colon polyps.
Hawthorn Leaf Extract reduces the risk of death in heart failure patients
In congestive heart failure the heart muscle is no longer able to pump enough
blood to the rest of the body. In a clinical trial that included 2,681 patients
with congestive heart failure the effects of Hawthorn Leaf Extract were compared
to placebo; the patients were already receiving medical treatment. The patients
in the study had severely impaired left ventricular function (this affects the
ability to pump blood to the body) indicating advanced congestive heart failure.
The researchers found that patients receiving the extract had a 20% reduction in
cardiac-related deaths; a major beneficial effect in these patients at imminent
risk of dying. The effects were a reduced risk of dying from fatal heart attacks
and sudden cardiac death. The study was just presented at the American College
of Cardiology scientific meeting in New Orleans.
