A compound found in blueberries could help prevent colon cancer, according to US research presented at the 233rd American Chemical Society meeting. The compound, pterostilbene, was tested in 18 rats that had been given a chemical to induce colon cancer in a manner similar to human colon cancer. Half of the rats were then placed on a normal diet while the other half received a pterostilbene-supplemented diet. Those that were fed pterostilbene showed 57 per cent fewer pre-cancerous lesions in their colon.
