Healing Properties of Christmas Fern

Posted: Updated:

Breakthrough cancer research is linked to a Christmas plant.

The Christmas Fern is a North American native plant found easily in the New England area.

A study in Connecticut finds that the fern has an active component that can help shrink brain tumors.

Researchers combined its anti-oxidant properties with two other drugs and tests showed that it killed 50% of the cancer cells.

Scientists are optimistic saying that clinical trials could be ready in a year.
