Cardamom & Skin Cancer

April 13, 2012

Qiblawi, et al (Journal of medicinal food Mar 12, 2012) demonstrated the chemopreventive potential of cardamom in an animal model system.

The results indicated a significant reduction in the values of tumor incidence, tumor burden, and tumor yield and the cumulative number of papillomas after oral treatment with cardamom.

Taken together, these findings indicate the potential of cardamom as a chemopreventive agent against two-stage skin cancer.
