abstract

  • Cornell food scientists found that whole apple extracts prevent mammary cancer in a rat model in a dose-dependent manner at the doses comparable to human consumption of 1, 3, and 6 apples a day. This study demonstrated that whole apple extracts effectively inhibited mammary cancer growth in the rat model, thus consumption of apples may be an effective strategy for cancer protection.
