Chocolate: anti-cancer properties?
« on: June 09, 2007, 01:57:42 PM »
Researchers from the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at Georgetown University have shown how an ingredient found in chocolate seems to exert its anti-cancer properties - findings that might be used one day to design novel cancer treatments. The study, published in the April issue of the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, explains how pentameric procyanidin (pentamer), a natural compound found in cocoa, deactivates a number of proteins that likely work in concert to push a cancer cell to continually divide.

Chocolate is made from the beans of cacao trees, and, like some other plants, are rich in natural antioxidants known as flavonoids. These antioxidants may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals, which are thought to contribute to both heart disease and cancer development. The primary family of flavonoids contributing to the antioxidant benefit in chocolate is the procyanidins, and of the various types of procyanidins, pentamer seem to be strongest, according to a number of studies.

Chocolate does have anti-oxidant properties, esp dark chocolate nga mas dako amount ug cocoa per serving...

but at the very least, a person has to consume one big bar (imagine the biggest choco bar from Hershey's) of chocolate every day to get the health benefit of flavonoids...

unya kung mag pirme ta'g kaon ug chocolate bar every day, mo dabyana na unya ta...kay grabe man kaayo na'g calorie content...if we get so fat nga obese na ta, that's one big (is that a pun?) factor for heart problems...

so eating chocolate for cardiac health, and inadvertently getting so fat that we're more at risk for cardiac problems...i dunno, mura ra ta ga tuyok tuyok ana

hehehe

If you're going through hell...keep on going...

i don't think dark chocolate can cause diabetes. perhaps, the white chocolates or those with nuts can cause they are sweet. specially those with caramels.
