Down to Earth - - COVER STORY -

A N AT U R A L LY oc­cur­ring food preser­va­tive, Nisin, which grows on dairy prod­ucts, can re­move can­cer cells. Re­searchers found that feed­ing rats a "Nisin milk­shake" killed 70-80 per cent of head and neck tu­mor cells af­ter nine weeks and ex­tended sur­vival. Many foods con­tain Nisin, but nowhere near the 800 mg/kg needed to kill can­cer cells. Jour­nal of An­timi­cro­bial Chemo­ther­apy, De­cem­ber 18, 2015 (on­line)
