New Medical Herbs Antitumor

Tumors are very common between humans in our society. The presence of tumors in different body parts and organs can cause extreme complications that can be very dangerous. Dealing with tumors can be using different methods according to how extreme they are. Small tumors can be broken down using medications while bigger tumors need surgeries. Tumor can be complicated into being cancerous which causes a huge problem for the patient.

However, a recent study conducted by a team of scientist from the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) were able to discover a new medical herb that can actually prevent tumors from growing in the body. The Mauritian herb called Acalypha Integrifolia, Eugenia Tinifolia, and Labourdonnaisia Glauca  shows properties that are antitumor. The study was published with the results in the Acta Naturae jounal.

The study was led by the Head of the Center for Genomic and Regenerative Medicine of the School of Biomedicine FEFU, an expert in the field of cancer epigenetics and chromosome biology called Alexander Kagansky.

He commented on the results obtained saying, “Mauritius Island is a treasure island of the global biodiversity, and the story of continuing tragedy of human greed, barbarian appetite (remember the Dodo bird from the Alice story, RIP) and neglecting of true wonders of the planet designed to save human lives. About one-third of the local plants are used in traditional medicine, but there is still a lack of scientific evidence of their therapeutic potential, while genocide of nature is most evident on such small pieces of lost paradise.”
