Researchers deeply observed the antioxidants and phytonutrients in plums and found them to equal or exceed those in the blueberry â a dominant fruit earlier considered superior to other fruits in those categories. The next phase was to understand if these antioxidants had any anticancer properties. They selected breast cancer, as it is one of the most common cancers for women. The W.H.O informs that due to breast cancer 16% of women died globally.
Â Many researchers researched on used extracts from two daily fruits: the peach; and the plum. The extracts destroyed even the most destructive cancer cell, but left healthy cells alone, which is very significant and benefitted. Generally in regular chemotherapy, healthy cells are killed along with cancerous ones, causing serious side effects.
Â A closer observation confirmed that two specific phenols â chlorogenic and neochlorogenic â were responsible for this target destruction. Both of them are easily available in fruits, the researchers said, but then again stone fruits such as plums and peaches have especially great levels.Â
One of the Â team declared that laboratory tests also proved that the compounds prevented cancer from growing in animals as well. The researchers need to see how these compounds could be combined into the growing of peaches and plums.
