Mechanistic Examination of Walnuts in Prevention of Breast Cancer

Key words:

Walnuts

Research Institution:

The Pennsylvania State University

Location:

Pennsylvania

Researcher:

John P Vanden Heuvel

Project Description:

Dr. Vanden Heuvel studied if walnut extract decreases the risk of breast cancer by affecting the function of tumor cells and fat cells and by modulating how they communicate with each other. This cell-cell communication between adipocytes and cancer cells is potentially a key step by which diet can modulate the cancer process.
