Pizza Herb Oregano Could Cure Prostate Cancer

“The pizza and pasta herb oregano could help fight prostate cancer, New York researchers said,” according to Fox News Latino. “Laboratory tests on prostate cancer cells at Long Island University (LIU) showed that carvacrol, a component of oregano, induces apoptosis — a process that causes cancer cells to ‘commit suicide.’ Previous research showed that eating pizza may cut down cancer risk, an effect widely attributed to lycopene, the pigment that gives tomatoes their color. However, the LIU researchers believe their study shows that oregano, a seasoning commonly used in pizza toppings, may play a role.”
