Has anyone ever heard of Modified Fruit Pectin (MCP)? I don’t think I had until today, or at least it wasn't on my radar. According to this article pectin “is generally not absorbed by the bloodstream.” That’s why it has been “modified,” so it can be absorbed. Scientists are using MCP supplements in an attempt to treat prostate cancer. They say that “MCP may block an important substance that enables cancer to grow and spread.” Of course it would be great if it did that. Read this article. It is very interesting. Here are more articles for further reading. And here are some more. Check it out.
