Animal Research Minute – Could bees help fight prostate cancer?
Well, according to the Western Farm Press, researchers have discovered a widely-available and natural remedy derived from honeybees could fight prostate cancer. A compound taken from propolis — the resin bees use to patch up their hives—stopped the growth of prostate tumors in mice that ate the compound daily. Scientists think this natural remedy could be an effective way to stop the cell division of human prostate cancer as well. With more research, this compound could become an effective treatment for people with prostate cancer.
