Mamma Mia! Could Pizza Help Cure Cancer?
While extreme pizzas with quadruple formaggis and cheeseburger crusts
are practically a health hazard, there's reason to believe that a piece of traditional pie may actually be good for you, especially if you ask for extra tomato sauce and sprinkle on the herbs. We've known that tomatoes are packed with vitamin C, folate, potassium, and lycopene, which may reduce risks of cardiovascular disease and cancer. And now, the spotlight is on oregano, which researchers at Long Island University
are calling the next "super-spice" because of its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as new evidence that compounds in oregano may be able to destroy cancer cells. This news calls for a party! Who's in for a slice?
