Food Companies Should Develop Functional Foods That Inhibit Abnormal Blood Vessel Growth

July 17, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Many drugs on the market are used to inhibit the abnormal growth of blood vessels that promote disease, obesity and inflammation. But there are also a wide variety of natural “anti-angiogenic” foods that accomplish the same thing. Among them are tomatoes, green tea, garlic, broccoli, dark chocolate, turmeric, tuna and olive oil. This should inspire food companies to participate in the “new frontier in dietary health” because there is a “clear global demand” for functional foods that provide health benefits beyond what is provided by their nutritive content, according to a nutrition scientist at General Mills.
