Red wine stops breast cancer spreading

Red wine stops breast cancer from spreading, researchers have discovered this week

Red wine stops breast cancer from spreading, researchers have discovered this week.
The wine's 'magic' ingredient, resveratrol, blocks the growth effects of estrogen, which, in turn, stops the cancer cells proliferating.
The discovery, made by researchers from the University of Calabria in Italy, is good news especially for women whose cancer is no longer responding to hormonal therapy. Red wine or resveratrol supplements could be a 'pharmacological tool' that can be added to the range of therapies for breast cancer, say the researchers.
They made the discovery when they tested cancer cells in the laboratory. Those that were treated with resveratrol stopped growing. "Scientists haven't finished distilling the secrets of good health that have been hidden in natural products such as red wine," said Gerald Weissman in an accompanying editorial.
