Bee products help fight cancer

Croation researchers say that natural honey-bee products such as propolis, royal jelly, caffeic acid, honey and venom may have applications in cancer treatment and prevention.

Nada Orsolic and colleagues from the University of Zagreb have found that bee products significantly decreased tumour growth and spread in mice.

Their article is published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture.
