Foods really do have the power to fight disease, including cancer.

A study of rats showed that mustard seed powders could successfully stop the growth of cancer and also stop it from spreading.  Supporting the assertion that food has powerful healing potential, it was the food itself that helped these animals, not the purified form of the compound. The cancer in the rats taking mustard seed grew one third slower than the tumors in the rats who did not eat the plant.

Human cancer cells in the laboratory were also neutralized when exposed to the active ingredient in mustard, allyl isothiocyanate.

Study authors did state that all commercially available mustard is not created equally; potency depends on the plant species and the preparation method.
