Garlic oil may help ease adverse effects of chemotherapy and radiation
London: A new study has found that garlic oil reduces the decrease of white blood cells caused by chemotherapy and radiation treatment in mice with cancerous tumors.
The findings of this study support the idea that cancer patients may benefit from consuming garlic oil as a complementary medicine to their treatments.
Further research is needed to assess whether garlic oil could reduce the adverse effects induced by other chemotherapeutic drugs used to treat cancer patients.
The study was published in the Journal of Food Science, published by the Institute of Food Technologists.
