Health benefits of citrus topic at American Chemical Society meeting in Philadelphia

PAPERS LISTED BELOW EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE: Tuesday, Aug. 24, 9:00 a.m., Eastern Time

Weight loss, cancer prevention and "super pills" among research highlighted during two-day symposium on health benefits of citrus, Aug. 24-25

PHILADELPHIA Negative reports about the interaction of grapefruit and prescription drugs and the current push for low-carb diets has caused citrus consumption to decline, experts say. But new evidence for the potential health benefits of citrus fruits including grapefruits, oranges and tangerines continues to emerge as researchers discover compounds in the fruits that fight cancer, obesity and cholesterol. More than a dozen research studies on these and other related topics including a potential super pill that could cut drug costs will be presented during a two-day symposium at the 228th national meeting of the American Chemical Society, the worlds largest scientific society.

The symposium, Potential Health Benefits of Citrus, begins at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 24, at the Courtyard by Marriott, Ballroom Salon III and IV. Highlights include the following:

Citrus compounds may prevent colon cancer Animal studies provide new evidence that citrus fruits contain compounds that may help prevent colon cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Researchers at Texas A&M University showed that freeze-dried grapefruit pulp, similar to whole grapefruit, reduced the incidence of early colon cancer lesions in an animal model of the disease. A researcher at Kanazawa Medical University in Japan showed that nobiletin, a compound found in tangerines, also shows promise in animal studies for preventing colon cancer. (AGFD 129, Tuesday, Aug. 24, 1:05 p.m., and AGFD 130, Tuesday, Aug. 24,1:35 p.m.)
