Grape Seed Extract 'Destroys' Cancer Cells

A clinical study conducted at the University of Kentucky found that an extract from grape seeds causes cancer cells to "commit suicide." Within 24 hours of application, the majority leukemia cells exposed were "killed off," while healthy cells were unharmed.

According to a report on the BBC, "scientists said it was too early to recommend that people eat grapes to ward off cancer."

We disagree. We strongly recommend that people eat grapes, and lots of them.

Western scientists who do such research are looking for drugs that can treat cancer. Our view is that the human body evolved to simply assume and expect a diet that includes grapes and fruits like grapes, and that insufficient quantities of grapes in the diet is one of the major causes of cancer.

Grapes formed a major part of the ancient Spartan diet, and the modern Spartan Diet. Eat plenty of dark-skinned organic grapes for maximum health. It's the perfect Spartan dessert.
