Anti cancer bilberry extract

A commercially produced substance known as Mirtoselect, extracted from bilberries, could be the next weapon in the fight against certain forms of cancer, including colorectal and liver cancer. Dave Berry, hepatobiliary surgeon at the Leicester General Hospital, is working with Andy Gescher, of the University of Leicester, England, are carrying out tests with pre-operative patients to discern with Mirtoselect can enter cancerous tissue and if so to what degree. By comparing results with their laboratory model, the research team will have an indication as to how effective the bilberry extract is likely to be in preventing cancer.
