Below is an excerpt of an article that tackles how bitter melon helps treat pancreatic cancer and diabetes:

Bitter Melon And Pancreatic Cancer

A study performed at the Colorado University examined the effects of bitter melon on pancreatic cancer. The study was done in vitro on four different lines of pancreatic cancer cells, and on mice injected with pancreatic tumor cells.

The researchers observed that bitter gourd juice stopped cancer cell proliferation and caused them to die. Tumor growth was reduced by 60% compared to the control group that received water. There were no signs of toxicity or side effects on the body.

Bitter Melon And Diabetes

Numerous clinical studies assessed bitter melon in relation to diabetes. Not all of these studies reached the same conclusion.

A study published in 2011 in Journal of Ethnopharmacology, showed that bitter melon significantly reduced blood glucose levels among patients with type 2 diabetes and had a modest hypoglycemic effect. However, an earlier study, published in Journal of Clinical Epidemiology in 2007, showed no benefits of bitter melon for type 2 diabetes.
If you are suffering from pancreatic cancer or diabetes, you might want to try adding bitter gourd to your diet.
