Apple pectin, apple juice extracts shown to have anticarcinogenic effects on
The apples and apple juice you consume may have positive effects in in the colon. New
research has demonstrated that both apple pectin and polyphenol-rich apple juice
components actually enhance biological mechanisms that produce anticarcinogenic compounds
during the fermentation process.

In flurry of studies, researcher
details role of apples in inhibiting breast cancer
Six studies published in the past year by a Cornell researcher add to growing evidence
that an apple a day -- as well as daily helpings of other fruits and vegetables -- can
help keep the breast-cancer doctor away. In one of his recent papers, published in the
Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (57:1), Rui Hai Liu, Cornell associate
professor of food science and a member of Cornell's Institute for Comparative and
Environmental Toxicology, reports that fresh apple extracts significantly inhibited the
size of mammary tumors in rats -- and the more extracts they were given, the greater the
inhibition. "We not only observed that the treated animals had fewer tumors, but the
tumors were smaller, less malignant and grew more slowly compared with the tumors in the
untreated rats," said Liu, pointing out that the study confirmed the findings of his
preliminary study in rats published in 2007.
