The study below found some significant facts regarding health effects of certain food. This is an attempt by us to interpret the findings so that it could be implemented in everyday health practices. It has to be understood that good eating habits are necessary for optimal health and that means that a variety of good foods have to be consumed every day. We do believe that some food has medicinal value and could be used to help in the prevention and support of treatment in certain illnesses. However, if it is not part of a good nutritious diet, it might lose its value. Although we do believe in the power of natural food, we absolutely do not claim to cure any disease through the consumption of specific food
Gagandeep, M Dhiman, E Mendiz, A R Rao, R K Kale. Chemopreventive effects of mustard (Brassica compestris) on chemically induced tumorigenesis in murine forestomach and uterine cervix. Hum Exp Toxicol. 2005 Jun;24(6):303-12. PMID: 16004197
The results of this study strongly suggest the cancer chemopreventive potentials of mustard seeds and their ability to enhance the antioxidant defense system. In turn it provides protection against the toxic effects of carcinogens. It is likely that the use of mustard seeds in the diet may contribute to reducing the risk of cancer incidence and burden in the human population.
