Dr. Block discusses resveratrol and the relationship between cancer and resveratrol.

Dr. Block:
Resveratrol is just one of many compounds that actually can be used to help combat malignancy, not in and of themselves. It’s important to point out that a natural compound is not, in my opinion, an answer to cancer but it can help lay the foundation to have a better environment to combat disease.

Resveratrol happens to have a number of properties that help battle cancer. We know that resveratrol we find it in red wine, in red grapes. We also find it in different herbal products – one called polygonum cuspidatum, now that’s a mouthful.

Resveratrol turns out to play piano chords on your jeans in a favorable way. It also can turn off certain mechanisms that are responsible for how cancer grows, inflammation being one. It can also drive apoptosis – cancer cell death. It can actually help up-regulate the programmed death that a cancer cell normally would go through and help speed it up.
