Oregano for Prostate Cancer

942If you want cancer cells to kill themselves, incorporate some more oregano into your diet. Oregano contains a compound (known as carvacrol) that causes apoptosis in prostate cancer cells. Apoptosis means that when cancerous cells come into contact with oregano, they actually commit cell suicide.

For a healthy cancer-fighting side dish, try this recipe out for your next dinner. Chop up a vegetable of your choice (for example, zucchini, squash or cauliflower) toss with equal parts 1 tablespoon of olive oil, fresh oregano and garlic. Roast in your oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for fifteen minutes. Yum!
