    Study on mice found palmitic acid promoted metastasis in mouth and skin cancers

    The knee-jerk reaction to this information would be to eliminate palm oil from the diets of cancer patients, right? Well, until you consider how impossible this would be, given the difficulty in knowing which ingredient in a pizza, for instance, or in Nutella, includes palm oil. While this is certainly interesting information, how helpful is it? In what ways can we incorporate it into an overall treatment plan for cancer patients? Suggestions welcome!
