In this article we are going to take a quick look at resveratrol and breast cancer, and see if there has been any link between them. The truth is, separating the fact from fiction with any anti aging supplement can be difficult and dubious to do, and with so much hype out there, it becomes easy to overlook some good hard science, and the sensational discoveries that abound.
Ok…..but does resveratrol have any carcinogen killing benefits….or is it all just a bunch of hype?
The truth is that there have been very positive studies done on resveratrol and breast cancer, and a very prominent one was published in the summer of 2008 which shocked many in the health community. In a study done at the University of Nebraska, low levels of resveratrol were discovered to be a powerful preventive measure to the formation of adducts, which are facilitated by too much estrogen in the body. The same research also showed that low levels of resveratrol also suppressed key risk factors for the development of breast cancer, both in quantites low enough to be found in potentially, a single glass of wine. ( contrary to some of the research that says one would need 1000 bottles of wine per DAY to take advantage of the res found in grapes)
