Weight watchers and health fanatics alike love eating celery! Not only does it use more energy to chew the fibrous food than it contains, it's healthy for your diet too.

But a new study shows there's a more important reason to add celery to your diet!

It can protect you from cancer!

The research - funded by China's National Natural Science Foundation and America's National Cancer Institute - shows that one compound in celery has the potential to keep gut, pancreatic, liver, ovarian, lung and breast cancer at bay.

Your Body’s #1 Defence Against Cancer Is…

There's a smart way to fight cancer—and it is not by cutting it out, burning it out, or poisoning yourself hoping that the cancer dies before you do.

No, the smart way to fight cancer is to separate the good cells from the bad.

No chemo drug can do that.

But your own immune system can. It’s always your first line of defence. So anything you can do to strengthen it will guard against invaders like rogue cancer cells.

Even aggressive cancer-types don’t stand up against celery

The study involved scientists wanting to know what effect the active ingredient in celery - apigenin - has on cancer proliferation and growth.
They did their experiment on mice and, before introducing cancer into their cells, they fed them apigenin at every meal for a week.
There were three groups of mice. One group got 0.025% apigenin as part of their daily diet, the second group 0.05% and the last group was the control – they got nothing. 
A week into the study, they injected aggressive ovarian cancer cells into the mice.
This specific cancer type is very resistant to chemotherapy and grows and proliferates quickly, leading to cancer in other tissues too. It’s a common cancer in women that has the highest death rate amongst all types of cancer.
Within a month, the mice had full-blown tumours forming.
And while the apigenin didn’t stop cancer in this aggressive form, it did have a significant effect that provides hope for cancer patients and those at risk!
Throughout the 60-day study, the mice continued to receive their daily dose of assigned apigenin. And this is what made the difference.
Usually, other tissues would show visible signs of cancer metastasis, but for the apigenin mice, it stayed in the mice’s ovaries.
Researchers concluded that eating celery may be able to keep cancer cells – even aggressive types – from spreading to other tissues! And while they don’t know if there’s potential for it to help prevent cancer just yet, there’s little reason for you to not eat celery every day!
Here’s how to include it in your diet…
