NEWS-CANCER - Scientists Discovered That THYME Essential Oil Potently Kills LUNG And BREAST Cancer Cells


THYME (Thymus vulgaris) essential oil, often referred as “oil of thyme”, contains 20-54% thymol. Thymol is part of a naturally occurring class of compounds, called “biocides”. Biocides are substances known for their ability to destroy harmful organisms. When combined with other biocides, such as carvacrol, thymus has strong antimicrobial effect. Researchers tested its antibacterial effect in vitro toxicology on three human cancers: Lung, Oral and Ovarian cancer cells. 
Thyme oil can kill up to 97% of the lung cancer cells. A recent study showed that the combination of thyme and olive oil increases the power of hydroxytyrosol, the most potent anti-cancer compound found in olive oil.
