Parsley & Breast Health

You’ve probably heard that parsley is a great breath freshener (if not, now you know!), but recent research at the University of Missouri has shown that apigenin, a compound found in parsley, could prevent and slow the growth of breast tumors. Apigenin is most prevalent in parsley and celery, but it’s also found apples and oranges. So now there’s another good reason not to leave that green garnish lying lonely on your plate!
