Plectranthus: a review of ethnobotanical uses.
Rosmarinic acid.
Characterization of potentially chemopreventive phenols in extracts of brown rice that inhibit the growth of human breast and colon cancer cells.
Brown rice and bran contain compounds with putative cancer chemopreventive properties and these phenols are present at much lower levels in white than in brown rice, suggesting the consumption of rice bran or brown rice instead of milled white rice may be advantageous with respect to cancer prevention.

Flavone C-glycosides from Viola yedoensis MAKINO.
A new flavone C-glycoside has been isolated from Viola yedoensis by spectroscopic methods and new or revised (1)H- and (13)C-NMR spectral assignments are proposed for some compounds.
Evolutionary history and leaf succulence as explanations for medicinal use in aloes and the global popularity of Aloe vera
Well-developed succulent leaf mesophyll tissue, an adaptive feature that likely contributed to the ecological success of the genus Aloe, is the main predictor for medicinal use among Aloe species, whereas evolutionary loss of succulence tends to be associated with losses of medicinal use.
