    Default Beehives and Prostate Cancer

    A study has shown that a compound called caffeic acid phenethyl ester or CAPE is made from propolis and has stopped the spread of prostate cancer cells in mice.

    Maybe another future source of cash for beekeepers?

    But that explains why we need mouse guards.

    Caffeic acid phenethyl ester may also be useful in suppressing harmful reactions to radiation treatment for cases of lung cancer in humans - no mention of mice here.

    This study suggests that CAPE decreases the cascade of inflammatory responses induced by thoracic irradiation without causing toxicity in normal lung tissue. This provides a rationale for combining CAPE and thoracic radiotherapy for lung cancer treatment in further clinical studies.

    But regardless of its benefits, CAPE can be obtained in a variety of ways, including directly from plants.
    Caffeic acid can be found in the freshwater fern Salvinia molesta[3] or in the mushroom Phellinus linteus.[4]

    It seems unlikely that extracting CAPE from propolis will be more economical than getting it from the ferns or mushrooms mentioned in the link.

    At one time, a professor at Wake Forest University was conducting a study on the effects of using propolis in cancer treatment. I have not heard the outcome of the study but initially it looked promising.

    Hard to say.
    But if we all stop paying taxes it will surely reduce the rat population.

    Maybe, but I bet it will increase the number of " jail BIRDS "
