Orange Juice May Help Fight Breast Cancer

Researchers have found that biologically-engineered mice that drank only orange juice prior to being injected with human breast cancer cells, had 50 percent fewer tumor and a 50 percent decrease in the spread of cancer to other parts of the body than mice who drank only water. The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Western Ontario and which will be released at the International Congress of Nutrition in Montreal, also found that rabbits who drank orange juice had 43 percent less LDL cholesterol. The studies lay the groundwork for trials to test if humans respond as well to the orange juice.
