Pass the Parsley...and Celery!

(Andrew Weil, M.D.) Parsley and celery contain a compound that may help protect against breast cancer, possibly by blocking the growth of tumor cells.
This interesting finding … suggests that apigenin, a flavonoid found in parsley, celery, apples, oranges, nuts and other plant products, seemed to block or delay tumor formation in rats that had been programmed to develop breast cancer…
The investigators said that they're not yet sure what dose of apigenin would be appropriate for humans, but suggested that eating some parsley and fruit daily could help ensure that you're getting the minimal amount.
