Drinking pomegranate juice may help slow the progression of lung cancer, a University of Wisconsin-Madison study shows.
The researchers found that mice that drank the juice saw a greater reduction in tumor growth than those that didn't drink pomegranate juice. The reduction was 53.9% at 84 days and 61.6% at 140 days.
Previous studies have indicated that pomegranates might be beneficial in preventing a variety of other conditions, including heart disease and prostate cancer. The study is published in Cancer Research.
