Belhaven University’s Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Elizabeth Brandon and a team of student researchers are discovering foundational research toward a breakthrough in the fight against cancer.
The University’s team is revealing preliminary data that shows a low concentration of kale juice can actually kill a type of liver cancer cell, called HepG2.
“It’s a different way of looking at food,” said Dr. Brandon, who started this type of research 10 years ago. A student, interested in working with kale juice and its effects on melanoma cells, gave her the idea. Since then, she and other biologists have studied cava, mimosa, green tea, pomegranate, blueberries, and many other plants.
Dr. Brandon joined Rebecca Turner on Good Things to share the exciting research, plus offered practical tips to getting the same health benefits in your daily diet.
