"A bright purple flower could play a role in protecting against skin cancer, according to two new studies.
New research from the University of Colorado Cancer Center shows that not only does milk thistle extract, called silibinin, protect against skin cancer-causing ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation, but it also kills cells that have undergone mutations due to ultraviolet-A (UVA) radiation -- a process that would potentially lead to cancer."
I have ordered some milk thistle extract to apply to my skin. There are also capsules, supplements, which can be taken internally. If the silibinin can actually protect against and kill mutated cells, I think this is very big news. Will have to wait and see what future studies have to say. For now, I'm doing my own study at home!
