The study found that chamomile tea can prevent cancer, including cancer of the breast. The secret of this useful property is that the drink contains a substance apigenin, which deprives the cancer cells ability to exist longer than healthy cells, stops them from spreading and makes them more sensitive to treatment.
In addition to chamomile, apigenin found in parsley and celery, as well as many vegetables and fruits that are included in the Mediterranean diet. The study found that, with the help of this chemical compound specific proteins begin to restore the function of RNA molecules, the violation of which in 80% of cases lead to cancer.
In the research work the scientists concluded that apigenin binds to 160 proteins in the human body, while most drugs against cancer aims only one molecule, writes The Daily Mail.
