The number of cancer patients is increasing day by day in different countries of the world. New innovations to cure and prevent this disease are giving people a lot of opportunities to become aware. Recently, people are benefiting from using such a mobile app. The mobile app has been used to detect various types of food cancer microorganisms.
The app called ‘DreamLab’ has been downloaded more than 3,000 times so far. This app works when mobile phone users are asleep while the phone is idle. The app was created in collaboration with Imperial College London and the Vodafone Foundation. The results of this research have been published in the journal Nature.
The app uses an algorithm to test more than eight thousand foods a day. Based on this, a detailed informational database is created. It is mainly used to find the microorganisms that have been proven successful in combating cancer in various lab tests. Grapefruit, coriander, and cabbage are found in high numbers of anti-cancerous microorganisms. In addition, carrots, walnuts, and oranges also contain such microorganisms.
Studies show that current anti-diabetic and anti-microbial drugs may play a role in cancer elimination therapy. Chief researcher at the Department of Surgical and Cancer, Imperial College, London. Kirill Veselkov said, ‘This is an important moment for us. The next step will be to use AI technology to see how the combination of different drugs and the food-based microorganisms have an impact on people. ‘
Willin Wu, a health information officer at Cancer Research UK, says: “With this study, we may be able to find new cancer therapeutics or get in the way; Basically the therapy is naturally in our diet and drink. ‘
Willin Wu added, ‘Your overall eating habits are more important than eating a particular diet to reduce the risk of cancer. However, it has been proven that you can reduce the risk of cancer by eating a lot of fiber, especially fruits and vegetables. It is also important to reduce the intake of processed meats, red meats, and high-calorie foods/drinks, he added.
