The fruit is Angiostatin and Endostatin, two new compounds that-- unlike traditional chemotherapy--don't attack the tumor, but the blood vessels that nourish it.
To grow, a tumor sends out chemicals that make blood vessels reach out to it. With a constant blood supply, the tumor becomes large and life-threatening. Used together, angiostatin and endostatin cut off those chemicals, shrink the blood vessels and kill the tumor.
The principle-and the new drugs, were discovered by Dr. Judah Folkman at children's hospital in Boston. He makes it a point not to appear on camera, but told us by telephone that in mice, the drugs worked like a magic bullet.
