Scientists may have found a vegetable which processes a potency in killing cancer cells before spreading, some studies suggested.
Cancer is a class of diseases in which a group of cells growing and multiplying disordered and uncontrollable way in our body.
At the advanced stage, the invasive cancer cell can travel a distance away from the original site to infect other healthy tissues and organs via lymph or/and blood.
According to the statistic provided by the UK Cancers research, in 2012, an estimated 14.1 million new cases of cancer occurred worldwide.
Sadly, more than 4 in ten cancers occurring worldwide are in countries at a low or medium level of Human Development Index (HDI).
The four most common types of cancer, occurring worldwide are lung, female breast, bowel and prostate cancer.
Beet is best known as the beetroot or garden beet and belong to the amaranth family. It is a perennial plant with leafy stems growing to 1–2 m tall.

Besides the major chemical constituents betalains and phenolics, beetroot also contains the lesser amount of isobetanin, probetanin, neobetanin, indicaxanthin, vulgaxanthins, etc.
In the study to reaffirm the effect of red beetroot (Beta vulgaris L.) extract (B), approved by Food and Drug Administration and European Union as red food color E162, in reducing multi-organ tumor formations in various animal models when administered in drinking water, researchers at the Howard University launched an investigation to examine whether a long-term daily exposure to low doses of B through diet would be safe and sufficient to produce cancer chemopreventive effect in humans.
* Both doxorubicin and the beetroot extract exhibit a dose-dependent cytotoxic effect in the two tested cancer cell lines.
Further analysis of the results, researchers found that the anticancer activity may be attributed to its bioactive compound betanin, the major betacyanin constituent.
