(NaturalNews) A multidisciplinary research team from the University of Kansas (KU) has made a pioneering discovery in the realm of natural, plant-based cancer treatments. Preliminary findings published in the Journal of Natural Products (JNP) reveal that wild tomatillo (Physalis longifolia), a weed commonly found throughout the midwestern Great Plains and in other areas of North America, possesses at least 14 unique anti-cancer compounds that could one day change the way doctors approach cancer treatment.
Note: Though there appears to be a dearth of extracts or other supplements based on wild tomatillo, the good news is that they are easy to grow in a wide part of the country and the seeds are available from numeorous sources (just do a search and you will see). Plus, they are reported to taste great! I'm putting my order in today!
