Fighting Cancer? Be Armed with Red Grapes and Green Tea
Biomedical researches and health care professionals often tout the benefits of certain foods in preventing various cancers. Exactly how do foods accomplish this task? Perhaps, one mechanism for this can be understood through the physiological process known as angiogenesis. Angio-what? Angiogenesis is a natural process in which the body generates blood vessels that supply oxygen and nutrients to the tissues of the body and remove carbon dioxide and other wastes. In this compelling talk Dr. William Li, a cancer researcher explains abnormal angiogenesis in cancer as well as in other disease processes. Later, he elaborates on the results of his research. These findings suggest that several foods, including red grapes and green tea contain naturally occurring inhibitors which effectively prevent abnormal angiogenesis and ultimately delay if not altogether prevent cancer.
