It turns out that avocados might be even more powerful than we thought, which is saying a lot considering how beneficial to health we know them to be.
According to a study published in the journal Cancer Research, avocados may hold the answer to curing leukemia (AML), a devastating cancer of the blood cells.
Professor Paul Spagnuolo from the University of Waterloo has discovered a lipid in avocados that attacks leukemia stem cells directly, without harming healthy cells.
Spagnuolo believes that his avocado-based drug could dramatically increase life expectancy and quality of life for AML patients. But, of course, it’s going to take time. He’s preparing for a Phase I clinical trial in which people diagnosed with AML could have access to it, which is encouraging. Keep your eyes and ears open for more news about this exciting research!
