The Mediterranean Diet Makes Cancer Cells Mortal

One way that cancer cells thrive is by inhibiting a process that would cause them to die on a regular cycle, which is subject to strict programming.

This study in cells, led by Ohio State University researchers, found that a compound in certain plant-based foods, called apigenin, could stop breast cancer cells from inhibiting their own death.

So, while apigenin doesn't exactly outright kill cancer cells, it does help stop their proliferation.

In this segment of Healthy Talk, health expert, Helayne Waldman, joins Dr. Mike to discuss this new discovery and how it's changing the world of cancer.
