Mustard Seed Puts the Heat on Bladder Cancer

A study with rats has revealed that a plant compound abundant in mustard, horseradish and wasabi stopped the growth of bladder cancer by one-third.  The compound also completely prevented metastasis, the condition in which the cancer invades of surrounding muscle tissue.

What’s more, the food tested (a mustard seed powder) was actually more effective at controlling the cancer than the purified form.

Environmental Health News reports:

“These new findings bolster others that show mustard seed has anti-cancer properties and support a rich history of its use in traditional Chinese and folk medicines ... Besides mustard, many other edibles from the cabbage family ... are also known to lower overall cancer risk and supply important vitamins.”
