In this study, the researchers treated breast and cervical cancer cells with peanut phenolics (resveratrol, ferulic acid, sinapinic acid), and tested their effects on the cells.

Key Findings

All of the phenolic compounds restricted cancer cells from replicating, which may have been a result of them causing cancer cell death. Among all the phenolics tested, resveratrol was the most effective in inhibiting the growth of cancer cells.
