Stopping and delaying the growth of tumor cells is key in combating cancer and the terrible toll it takes on the many lives it so unwelcomingly touches. One woman’s research on the use of the therapeutic qualities of bitter melon extract, a tropical vegetable commonly used in Indian and Chinese cooking, shows potential as a chemo-preventative agent that reduces cancer cell growth. Join Saint Louis University professor, Dr. Ratna Ray, as she discusses her research on dietary products, such as bitter melon extract, and their role in cancer therapy and prevention.
