Lox has also been shown to play a role in the development of lung, bowel, prostate and pancreatic cancer, meaning the new treatment could be rolled out to a larger number of those afflicted by the illness. Natural complements to standard surgery, radiation and chemotherapy are generally welcomed.

Researchers have found that women with breast cancer can be helped with social connections.

Dr Justine Alford, senior science information officer at Cancer Research UK, said: "This research in mice is exciting because it not only reveals new details of how breast cancer grows and spreads, but it could lead to a completely new way to stop these processes in patients if proven in people". Another month later, all the mice were injected with A17 breast cancer cells.

The in vitro model used cells from the A17 tumor cell line, a high aggressive and invasive tumor.

As of this time these results cannot be extrapolated to people.

Scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies studied mice with Alzheimer's symptoms and found that when they were given fisetin, a type of flavonol that's found in strawberries, they began producing anti-inflammatory molecules, and both memory loss and learning impairments were prevented.

After five weeks on a strawberry-boosted diet, the mice showed no sign of progressing cancer spread and their tumours had shrunk. The researchers have emphasized the potential value of a healthy lifestyle which is characterized, among other considerations, by a balanced diet with a lot of fruit and vegetables, which includes strawberries.

Maurizio Battino, who is co-author of the paper and a principal investigator at the Marche Polytechnic University in Italy and the European University of the Atlantic in Santander in Spain, says the results of this study are definitely valid for gaining an understanding of potential effects of strawberries on breast cancer.

The researchers also said that the concentration of phenolic compounds can vary greatly between varieties of strawberry.

The new study, published in the journal Nature Communications, showed that it also promoted cancer growth by acting on a molecular receptor called EGFR.

In a first, scientists have found that strawberry extracts may help prevent the spread of aggressively growing breast cancer cells and reduce the size of tumours. Regularly enjoying delicious and nutritious strawberries which are naturally rich in many vitamins and minerals, along with other fruit and vegetables, is a good habit to get into.
