Mexican researchers find anti-cancer properties in chocolate- .

Researchers at Mexico’s IPN School of Medicine are carrying out tests with epicatechin, a molecule present in chocolate that causes cancer cells to self-destruct in cell cultures and animal models, according to the Scientific and Technological Advisory Forum.

Epicatechin, found naturally in cocoa, red wine, or green tea, can kill cancer cells selectively without affecting normal cells according to these specialists.

Additionally, they have found that combined with other drugs currently used in clinical therapies, such as paclitaxel (Taxol) and tamoxifen (Tamoxifen), it accelerates their effects and decreases the amount required.

The studies have been carried out in the laboratory with cell cultures, but now scientists are already carrying out research on animal models to check their innocuousness in living beings and in the medium term, they want to test on humans.

The best natural heat container…

Peeling back the curtain on a ferment one day after the fully aerobic phase started. The oxidation of ethanol to acetic acid is highly exothermic and has increased the temperature of the fermenting mass to just over 50 C. The heat and acetic acid have started to scorch the banana leaves and you can smell the vinegar in the air before you get close to the box. If you look closely, you can see some beans are bleeding purple pigment. This indicates that cell death and lysis inside the seeds has begun, and the complex cascade of enzymatic and other chemical reactions that produce the precursors to chocolate flavor are under way.
