Walnuts & Cancer
Walnuts are being extensively studied for their cancer-fighting abilities. It is popularly believed that cancer may be the result of inherited or novel genetic mutations but can be prevented if taken proper measures.

Studies suggest that walnuts contain ellagitannins, gamma-tocopherol and melatonin which help in reducing inflammation, gene expression and oxidative stress that cumulatively cause cancer proliferation and growth (3)
Researchers conclude that consuming walnuts and other nuts in place of other less healthy alternatives reduces the risk of the development of carcinogenic cells and aids cardiovascular health (4).
Walnuts are a rich source of polyphenol ellagitannins which are converted into urolithins that provide anti-inflammatory properties protecting individuals against colorectal cancer. Urolothins have the ability to block hormone receptors in the body, therefore, reducing the risk of hormone-related cancer. (4)
