Phytochemical allicin and breast cancer

Allicin is phytochemical containing sulfur in the class of organosulfur compound, found abundantly in onion and garlic.
Breast cancer (malignant breast neoplasm) is a cancer that starts in the tissues of the breast either from the inner lining of milk ducts (Ductal carcinoma) or the lobules (Lobular carcinoma) that supply the ducts with milk. there is also rare cases that breast cancer starts in other areas of the breast.

The health benefits
The prevalence of breast cancer is widespread in develop world as 250,000 new cases of breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S. alone and the risk of getting invasive breast cancer during life time of a women is 1/8. Treating breast cancer with natural elements with little or no side eefcts have drawn many interests to the research community. Allicin, generated by oxidation of diallyl disulfide (DADS) may be effective in suppressing breast cancer as in rat study, its activation of metabolizing enzymes that detoxify carcinogens, the suppression of DNA adduct formation, the inhibition of the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), regulation of cell-cycle arrest, induction of apoptosis as well as reducing side effects caused by anti-cancer agents.
