Project Description:

This study proposed that metabolic profling of phytochemicals may be useful for assessment of how fruits and vegetables are benefcial to overall health and disease prevention. The rationale is that if particular compounds found in the metabolic fingerprint of dry bean are not found in plasma, the probability that they are related to health benefits is reduced. The goal of the work was to determine what chemicals in dry beans account for the differential anticancer effects seen in experimentally-induced breast cancer.
