The Amazing Cancer-Fighting Properties of Pineapple

paOne of the big challenges in modern medicine today remains the treatment of cancer. Treatments like chemotherapy – and to a certain extent, radiation therapy as well – are able to kill off cancer cells. However, they can also destroy healthy cells in the process, and the cells of the skin and of the lining of the digestive tract seem particularly vulnerable to this. These therapies also weaken the body’s ability to fight off cancer cells naturally due to immune system damage.

There are, however, some natural substances out there which appear to be able to kill off cancer cells while leaving the healthy cells around it intact. This is called selective cytotoxicity. One such substance with this property can be found in an unlikely source – pineapples.
