10 Health Benefits of Eggplant (SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN)

4 – Eggplant and cancer

An extract from eggplant (solasodine rhamnosyl glycosides) induces apoptosis in a wide variety of cancer cells and are more effective than many well-established anticancer agents.[2] Anticancer therapies with solasodine rhamnosyl glycosides have been used orally, intravenously and topically.

A topical eggplant extract has been shown to be very effective for the treatment of large nonmelanoma skin cancers.[3]

In one case, treatment with the eggplant extract cream reduced the tumor to about half its original size, and the cancer was completely eliminated with no scar tissue formation after 14 weeks.
