Legumes may protect against mammary cancer

February 13, 2009 by  

Legumes are full of antioxidantsScientists have observed that dry beans have a potential to reduce the risk of mammary cancer.

Scientists at Colorado State University analyzed the impact of the consumption of six different types of beans – small red, great northern, navy, black, dark red and white kidney beans – on the cancer history of laboratory animals in a standard preclinical model for breast cancer.

They found that cancer incidence in the group fed beans fell to 67 percent compared to 95 percent incidence in the control group. The average number of malignant tumors also fell from 3.2 in the control group to 1.4 tumors in the group fed beans.

The study was published in the January-February 2009 issue of the journal Crop Science.

This is yet another example of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle which includes legume consumption. Legumes such as beans, peas, lentils and peanuts are known to be high in antioxidants, which play a crucial role in the body’s defense against cancer-causing free radicals.

    Yes, and for all you methane haters….it helps humans produce lots of it. So, along with the fact that we exhale CO2, and are accused of pollution, scientists now want us to produce more methane. Who knew.
