Oregano - the pasta and pizza herb - is killing prostate cancer cells

Oregano - the herb used in pasta and pizzas - kills prostate cancer cells

Oregano - the herb used in pasta and pizzas - kills prostate cancer cells. The results are so exciting that researchers hope that the 'super herb' will become a standard treatment - and one without side effects.
Carvacrol, a constituent of oregano, is causing apoptosis - or cell death - in prostate cancer cells in laboratory tests being carried out by researchers from Long Island University.
Their results mirror earlier studies that had discovered that pizza seems to reduce cancer risk, but now the new research suggests why it has such a positive effect. Initially, researchers believed that lycopene, which is found in the tomato sauce covering on pizzas, had anti-cancer qualities. The Long Island researchers say that oregano and lycopene could be working synergistically to kill cancer cells.
What is clear is that neither have the same damaging side effects as the current therapies of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
