Both oil- and water-soluble allyl sulfur compounds from garlic have been found to possess antitumorigenic properties. These antitumorigenic properties increase as exposure increases both in vitro and in vivo. Generally, oil-soluble allyl sulfur compounds are more effective antiproliferative agents than their water-soluble counterparts. The ability of these compounds to suppress proliferation is associated with a depression in cell cycle progression and the induction of apoptosis. This… CONTINUE READING
