Cancer has become the plague of modern day and millions of people are dying every year due to this disease. Scientists are constantly on the lookout for new, alternative ways of treatment which may eventually lead to a cure and this time they may be on the right track. According to recent studies, black cumin seed oil (nigella sativa) has the ability to hider cancer cell activity and has proven effective in the treatment against cancer. These results are still limited to animal studies but the researchers are hopeful it will be effective in humans as well. The studies showed that black cumin seed oil and its extract thymoquinone can be used effectively in the treatment against liver cancer, melanoma, pancreatic cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, bone cancer, stomach cancer, lymphoma, prostate cancer, colon cancer and brain cancer.
