Food Therapy: Black bean, the Functional Food In Reduced Risk and Treatment of Osteocarcinoma

By Kyle J. Norton

People who turn to alternative medicine for treatment of disease in avoidance of adverse effects induced by conventional medicine should be patient. In compared to herbal medicine; food therapy even takes longer than six months to ease symptoms, depending to stages of the treatment which directly address to the cause of disease.

Intake of black bean regular may reduce risk and delay progression and treatment of osteocarcinoma, an invasive form of bone cancer.

Osteocarcinoma is a condition of bone cancer caused by irregular cell growth in bone, affecting mostly adolescents and young adults..

Black bean, a small roughly ovoid legumes with glossy black shells, genus Phaseolus, belongings to the family Fabaceae can be bought in most grocery stores all around the year in dried and canned forms. It is believed that black bean was first domesticated growth in South America.

According to the The Chinese University of Hong Kong, hemagglutinin isolated from an edible legume, namely black bean, showed an anti proliferative activity against tumor cell lines MG-63 and HepG2 but not the normal cell line.

Malignant osteocarcinoma cell treated with the phytochemical also exerted a significant effect in shrinking of tumor cells as well as inducing apoptosis.

The study also stated that hemagglutinin also induced cell death through interfering the first stage of tumor cell division in expression of protein, RNA, and DNA and inducing mitochondrial membrane depolarization in controlling plasma membrane of a muscle or nerve cell

Furthermore, the study also suggested that the efficacy of hemagglutinin in causing cell death may be attributed to the function of protein in increased regulation of pro inflammatory expressions.

Dr. Dan X, the lead author said, " a novel hemagglutinin from an edible legume (showed) a growth-inhibitory effect on osteocarcinoma and liver cancer cells" and " The hemagglutinating activity of this hemagglutinin was demonstrated to be ion dependent and stable over a wide range of temperature and pH values".

The findings suggested that black bean may be considered as functional food in improved bone health as well as reducing risk and treatment of  osteocarcinoma, but further studies are necessary to confirm it's potency.
