Scientists are inclined to mark out green tea and red wine as the foods possessing the most salubrious qualities. Gerald Weissmann, D.Sc., chief editor of the FASEB Journal, said that antioxidants found in green tea and red wine produce a great influence on our body of which doctors weren’t aware only 25 years ago.
The FASEB Journal published a study that reveals why the polyphenols contained in red wine and green tea inhibit cancer growth on the strength of experiments done on mice.
The study describes how the antioxidants of wine and tea break away a significant cell off the signaling pathway necessary for cancer cell growth, thus inhibiting the ferments sphingosine kinase-1/sphingosine 1-phosphate. This process is crucial for treating such kind of cancer as breast, prostate and stomach cancer.
Scientists believe that this discovery may lead to developing new medicines that will be efficient in halting or slowing down cancer advancement and enhance the existing treatments.
