What about garlic as a potential anticancer agent?
A recent study evaluated the inhibitory effects of 34 commonly consumed vegetables on the proliferation of eight different tumor cell lines, derived from stomach, kidney, prostate, breast, brain (two types), pancreatic and lung cancer. The extracts from cruciferous and particularly genus Allium vegetables inhibited the proliferation of all test cancer cell lines. The study concludes that cruciferous, dark green and allium vegetables are endowed with potent anticancer properties. It further states that among all the vegetables tested in this study, the extract from garlic was by far the strongest inhibitor of tumour cell proliferation, with complete growth inhibition of all tested cell lines.
