Fight cancer with the help of lemons
Despite these numerous health benefits which we reap from this refreshing fruit, there are some new studies which show yet another amazing health benefit of the lemon. Several studies have shown that we can have more benefits if we not only drink the lemon juice, but if we consume the whole lemon without removing its peel.
The lemon is packed with vitamins-that’s a fact that we already know, but maybe it’ll come as a surprise to you that the lemon peel is 5-10 times richer in vitamins (like Omega 3 and Omega 6 for example). Moreover the peel can help you cleanse your body from toxins.
Scientists have been doing researches on the connection between lemons and cancer for decades and they have come to numerous conclusions which determine that lemon extract can successfully destroy malignant cells in many kinds of cancers including: colon cancer, breast cancer and lung cancer.
Some studies claim that lemons can destroy cancer more effectively than chemotherapy and more importantly in a safer and healthier way. Furthermore, several studies have shown that lemon extract therapy only affects malignant cells, leaving healthy cells unharmed.
According to a new research, limonoids, natural components found in lemons, are blocking ER+ and ER- breast cancer cell growth. The flavonoids and limonoids found in lemons can either stop the formation and growth of cancer cells, or kill them outright. These amazing findings have been mainly obtained by studies conducted on animals and in laboratory conditions using human breast cancer cells.
