Pomegranate Juice Reduces Breast Cancer Lesions

Pomegranate juice contains polyphenols, which have been shown to reduce breast cancer cell growth in laboratory studies. Repeated studies found that polyphenols from pomegranate juice exhibited growth inhibiting effects on human breast cancer cells.

A 47% reduction in cancerous lesion size was found in laboratory models of breast tumors.  Although this was a study on animals not humans, the effects were so significant that I think it’s worth including pomegranate as part of any breast cancer recovery diet.

Whole fruits are available in the produce department in the winter months and the seeds are sold in bags in freezer section of the grocery store.  The seeds are delicious on salads and in smoothies.  When buying pomegranate juice look for glass bottles rather than plastic and brands that don’t add sugar.
