The finding of a natural source for treatment of basal cell cancer has been running into many obstacles, many ingredients showed initially with promising result in animal studies have not produced same potentials in either large sample size and mutli centers human trials.
Skin cancer is a medical condition of uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells and often detected at an early stage. Basal cell cancer is the most common type of skin cancer as a result of abnormal growth of the cells in the lowest layer of the epidermis. The cancer rarely spread and kill but can cause significant destruction and disfigurement to the affected skin area, accounting for more than 90% of all skin cancer in the U.S.
Recent reports from some well known institutions suggested that certain food sources such as green tea and tomato may be effective for reduced risk and treatment of basal cell cancer, one of most common type of skin cancer.
Green tea has been a precious drink in traditional Chinese culture and used exceptional in socialization for more than 4000 thousand years. Due to its commercial values and health effects, green tea now has been cultivated all over the world in suitable climate.
According to the joint study lead by the University of Colorado Cancer Center, University of Colorado, green tea compound have been utilized in pre-clinical and/or clinical studies with promising results(1).
The early-onset basal cell carcinoma in a case-control study, lead by the Yale University School of Medicine, insisted that combined regular consumption of caffeinated coffee plus hot tea is inversely associated with early-onset BCC(2), particular the presence caffeine(3).
Dr. Song F and colleagues at the Harvard Medical School said, "Significant inverse association was also found between caffeinated coffee consumption and BCC risk" and "Compared with individuals who consumed caffeinated coffee less than 1 cup per month, women who consumed more than 3 cups/d had the lowest risk.."(4).
Tomato is a red, edible fruit, genus Solanum, belongs to family Solanaceae, native to South America. Because of its health benefits, tomato is grown world wide for commercial purpose
and often in green house. Its phytochemicals carotenoids, alpha-tocopherol and lycopene may be next potential target use for reduced risk and treatment of skin cancer(5), particular photo damage induced skin cancer (7). In fact, Topical application of lycopene hjas been used as antioxidants against depleted from the skin by UV radiation and achieve protection against premature aging and cancer(8).
Dr. Tong L and Dr. Young LC said, " ...., resveratrol, rosmarinic acid, lycopene,....have demonstrated clear anticancer effects toward melanoma(6).
Furthermore, lycopene also was found to inhibit platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB-induced human Hs68 skin fibroblast migration on gelatin and collagen of that related to the benefit of anti melanoma growth, invasion, and metastasis(9).
Taking altogether, the combination of tomato and green tea may process the activities in reduced risk of the development and progression and treatment of patient with basal skin cancer.
People with higher risk of basal skin cancer due to family history, genetic mutation .... should drink 1 serving daily and people with basal skin cancer should drink as much as they can, depending to digestive toleration.
