Portuguese scientists believe raw food parasites hold key to understanding cancer

Portuguese scientists have concluded that tiny parasites found in raw foods like watercress could be key to better understanding cancer.

Researcher Mónica Botelho believes it is “fundamental” to explore how such parasites, known as the common liver fluke, cause, promote and impede tumours in human beings.

That, she says could consequently help develop new strategies to control, treat and prevent malignant infections.
