Is it true that extracts from peaches are effective against breast cancer cells?

Answer: Yes.  In 2009, a scientific research paper was published by researchers at Texas A&M University demonstrating that extracts from the yellow-fleshed commercial cultivar “Rich Lady” were effective in inhibiting growth of breast cancer cells in lab tests.  The authors noted that in the peach extract, phenolic acids – namely, chlorogenic and neochlorogenic acid, have the potential to be chemoprotective dietary compounds “because of the relatively high growth inhibition on the breast cancer cell line and the low toxicity exerted on the normal cells”.
