Compound in Celery Found to Destroy Lung Cancer Cells

  Compound in Celery Found to Destroy 86% of Lung Cancer Cells

Many foods have a number of health benefits, while others stand above the rest as disease fighting wonders – at least in some specific departments. Celery is one of them. The food has been found to be extremely effective at killing ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, breast, liver, and lung cancer cells. In fact, in a recent study, celery killed up to 86% of cancer cells in the lungs (in vitro).

What makes celery so powerfully anti-cancerous? This nutritious, and low-calorie food seems unassuming. It is mostly water, after all, but in addition to calming your nervous system, aiding digestion, reducing inflammation, and lowering blood pressure, celery also contains an anti-cancer compound called apigenin, which has been effective at causing apoptosis (cell suicide) in numerous types of cancer cells.

Researchers in China have found that by eating just two medium stalks of celery 2 to 3 times a week can reduce the risk of getting lung cancer by an amazing 60%. It is still not definitive through the scientists research, however, if the apigenin alone does the work of killing cancerous cells or if they work in cooperation with other compounds found in celery

Furthering the link, other research found:

“Apigenin widely inhibits cell proliferation of various lung cancer cell lines in a dose-dependent manner and the combination treatment of apigenin and antitumor drugs is very effective in human lung cancer cells, and Nrf2-ARE pathway may contribute to the mechanism.”

And another study’s abstract focusing on the broader impact of fruit and vegetable intake on cancer concluded:

“In particular, high intake of Chinese cabbage (OR = 0.53), chives (OR = 0 .54), carrots (OR = 0.51) and celery (OR = 0.40) was inversely associated with lung cancer. The OR was more than six-fold elevated for smokers reporting low intake of vegetables, and more than four-fold elevated for smokers reporting low intake of fruit, as compared with never smokers reporting high intake of these items.

Conclusion: In agreement with previous studies, we found an inverse relation between vegetable and fruit intake and lung cancer risk in both strata of current and never smokers.”


Furthermore, woman who eat plenty amounts of apigenin in their diet are more likely to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer by 19%, and ovarian cancer by 20%. A study found that apigenin worked even on deadly, fast-growing breast tumors through inhibiting cell growth and suppressing the expression of a gene that is known to be associated with cancer growth. Furthermore, blood vessels which are known to fuel cancer cells were also found to shrink and receive restricted nutrient flow to the tumor — starving the ability to proliferate.

One way apigenin likely works is by reducing the possibility of cancerous tumor growth by decreasing the vascular endothelial and preventing glucose uptake – minimizing the cycle of cancer cells forming in the pancreas.

Vascular endothelial growth produces proteins that act as stimulation for the formation of new blood vessels. The unfortunate part of this protein is that is also helps the growth of cancerous tumors.

With such promising results, celery should be a new staple in your diet, and the diet of everyone you love. Just be sure to eat organic since celery is often drenched in pesticides – or you can grow your own!

Vegetarian Mincemeat Pie

Vegetarian Mincemeat (Green Tomatoes) ~Canning Post11:09 AM, 21-Jun-2008 ..
Green Tomato Mincemeat pie is so light and grandeur full of flavor with no fat. First when I first tried this recipe, it was because I had so many green tomatoes in my garden and hated to waste them at the end of the season. This recipe even it fooled me. It is an excellent recipe for a save to do again, but you won't need to because it makes up enough half pint jars for about five years. I wish someone in the family would adopt this recipe and save me a lot of time. However, one batch for a large family will last for years.

Do not give it away for Christmas and holidays because your friends are never grateful enough. lol
Your kitchen will smell heavenly. This is one of my best recipes, and a must to pass on to all vegans or vegetarians. I love this recipe so much that I don't like to share the canned pint jars of mincemeat, as give away for the holidays. Use only for presents to special friends who like mincemeat pies and its cookies.

This recipe is one you will need to stand over. You will not want to burn or scorch it it's too expensive and nutritious. One of the reasons this recipe is so great, no soot that makes it so light of a mincemeat recipe. The green tomatoes you can't tell if they are another fruit. I would love to pay extra money to purchase this green tomato recipe in the health food store. Some one should bottle this and make it up for them as a small business. The advantage of this recipe is it actually taste better than any store bought recipes in grocery stores. Which is; you can't buy receipt.
Green Tomato Mincemeat
Ø 6 lbs or 24 small green tomatoes
10-12 tart apples

Ø 1 lb. seedless raisins

Ø 4 cups brown sugar (or honey, use half as much...taste)

Directions: Core tomatoes and apples, (don't peel) and cut through coarse blade of food chopper. (Or cut very small pieces). Combine raisins, sugar and spices with vinegar in a large open kettle and add apples with raisins. Cook over low heat about 2 hours (here's the hard part) stirring constantly, or it will scorch. Quarter lemon and orange, leaving peels on, remove seeds, run through fine blade of chopper, and add to mincemeat stirring well. To freeze, cool well and place in pint containers.

To can, fill pint jars to within 1/2" of top and process 30 minutes in boiling water bath. Makes 10 pints. (1 pint makes a pie)

Green Tomato Marmalade:

The spice and even the orange is known for it's anti micro toxins abilities so let's use it more in getting rid of fungi's.

GREEN TOMATO Marmalade:'' Twenty-Four medium green tomatoes 4 oranges 3 1/2 sugar will make a new and delicious marmalade. You can use Sure Jell, Certo or M.C.P. and follow the directions for marmalade by substituting the green tomato for the grapefruit.'' (I add only enough sugar to make it a nice sweet, remember to began to cut back on sugars, each time using the recipe till you get just the right combination for your family.) Note: Be sure the all the fruit and vegetables are organically grown in a local garden if possible.
