    Default Recipe For Anti-Cancer Compound Found In Herbs Like Thyme And Oregano

    Purdue University
    December 30 2021

    Thyme and oregano possess an anti-cancer compound that suppresses tumor development, but adding more to your tomato sauce isn’t enough to gain significant benefit. The key to unlocking the power of these plants is in amplifying the amount of the compound created or synthesizing the compound for drug development. Researchers at Purdue University achieved the first step toward using the compound in pharmaceuticals by mapping its biosynthetic pathway, a sort of molecular recipe of the ingredients and steps needed.
    “These plants contain important compounds, but the amount is very low and extraction won’t be enough,” said Natalia Dudareva, a Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry in Purdue’s College of Agriculture, who co-led the project. “By understanding how these compounds are formed, we open a path to engineering plants with higher levels of them or to synthesizing the compounds in microorganisms for medical use.

    Nonetheless, it can't hurt to include them in your daily diet whenever possible. They are regular additions to any pasta sauce, to a lot of stews and stirfrys, and to my homemade breakfast sausage. I grow culinary herbs in pots on my deck, adjoining the kitchen, and bring many of them indoors to season my food all winter long.

    I keep a jar of vinegar packed with oregano and garlic. When I need salad dressing, I add some to a small bottle with around 50% olive oil. Oregano, thyme and basil - life would be dull without them.
