Hops: natural ingredient of Wonderup

The hop used in beer may help to prevent cancer (continued ...)
Copyright 1998 The Associated Press - Marzo 15, 1998

The results of a study conducted by researchers at Okayama University provides evidence that beer can actually help to counteract the carcinogenic effects of a class of compounds found in cooked food. The study specifically examined the effects of beer on mutations caused by these compounds that are the first step in changing healthy cells into cancer cells. The results were published in the January 1999 issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

The researchers examined the effectiveness of 24 different beers in canceling mutations associated with different types of heterocyclic amines produced when you apply heat to food. The protein-containing foods produce especially high levels of the compounds, and their connection with processes of tumor formation was reported for the first time more than ten years ago. The beers were tested from all over the world, and included 17 ales, stouts four, two red and two non-alcoholic.
Interestingly, the researchers found that dark beers have demonstrated the most pronounced inhibiting mutations linked to cancer, while the non-alcoholic beer and one of ales showed no effect. The findings of this study help to reinforce the idea that hops may have anticancer properties, as already reported by other scholars.

In a 1995 study, conducted by another group of Japanese investigatorsthe experiments have demonstrated that flavonoids in hops (the yellow pigments in the open flowers) inhibit an inflammatory reaction in the cells of human skin cancer.
Another study by researchers at Oregon State University in 1998 has also shown that flavonoids were toxic to certain human cancerous cells, although they were well tolerated by normal non-cancerous cells from the same type of human tissue.
