Western Health Description

Protection Against Stomach Cancer
A recent study based in Mexico City has shown that daily consumption of polyphenol called coumestrol at a level of 2 milligrams or higher is associated with decreased risk of stomach cancer. Pulses (including green peas) were determined to be a key food contributor since one cup of green peas contains at least 10 milligrams of coumestrol.
