Peaches Against Cancer
The July/August 2011 edition of Eating Well Magazine had a very interesting article that states,
Plums and peaches contain two types of polyphenols (anti-oxidants) that may help kill breast cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact, say researchers at Texas A&M. Good news, as 180,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year and traditional treatments often harm healthy cells. The researchers also found that plums and peaches have antioxidant levels to rival “superfood” blueberries.
We’ll be getting local peaches from Blooming Grove, TX this weekend!
