Scientists have found that broccoli contains anti-cancer substances, and future cancers can be controlled by diet!
Study on diet therapy control and treatment of diabetes in previous days With extensive attention, Elf doctors also wrote related review articles. In fact, this is not a special case of diet therapy. Chinese medicine practitioners have a branch called medicated diet, which regulates the body state through diet to prevent disease and cure diseases. Although there is no such thing as a medicated diet in the West, scientific research has found that a large number of foods contain ingredients for treating diseases. Recently, a group of scientists discovered that one of the broccoli we usually eat is called Sulforaphane. The chemical composition has the role of preventing and treating various cancers including prostate cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, etc. The research paper has been published in The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry (DOI: 10.1016/j.jnutbio.2017.01. 001).
Scientists have discovered that this chemical called sulforaphane can treat a variety of cancers because the cells of these cancers have a common feature of a lncRNA abnormality called LINC01116. Increased. I may see that everyone here does not know what to say. The simple understanding is that this LINC01116 can induce a lot of gene expression that promotes cancer deterioration and metastasis, that is, it is related to the degree of cancer deterioration. However, sulforaphane has been tested to regulate LINC01116 to a normal range, thereby preventing and treating cancer. Scientists have studied the prostate cancer cell line and found that sulforaphane can achieve four times the effect of reducing the degree of cancer cell deterioration by regulating LINC01116.
The significance of this study is not only the discovery of this anti-cancer substance in broccoli. Previous studies have shown that almost all cancers have abnormal expression of certain specific lncRNAs, and many natural substances have corresponding regulatory compounds, which naturally contain the food we eat. Elven doctors have said in previous articles that a great task in the future of precision medicine is to accurately predict the disease. If we can master a large number of dietary knowledge that can prevent various specific diseases, we can Individuals who are prone to attack can achieve disease prevention through normal diet without taking drugs, which is completely consistent with the traditional Chinese diet concept.
