Abstract 9-2 African Oil Bean Seed as an Essential Food Supplement in the Control of Cancer and Tobacco Related Diseases John Ifeanyi Chidozie, BSc, MDcv, MFR
Objective: To create an awareness of tropical seeds, fruits and herbs of African origin like the African Oil Bean Seed in the control and treatment of cancer and tobacco related disease.
Methods: African Oil Bean See is processed into “Ugba” by the processing method of fermentation and cooking. It can also be roasted which increases the shelf life. Ugba is a food type common among the Eastern people of Nigeria. The processed form results in a higher thiamine level in this food supplement.
Comparative studies of cancer risk and cancer levels were carried out between the Easterners who ate fermented oil bean and those who did not. An improvement index was measured between cancer patients who ate ugba as a meal supplement and those who did not.
Results: The fermented form of the African Oil Bean Seed as a food supplement has greatly reduced the risk of cancer and some tobacco related diseases. Cancer patients who regularly ate fermented oil bean seed as food supplements showed marked improvements in regaining quality health.
