Food Chem, 2014 Jan 15;143:362-6
Antitumour potential of honey is attributed to its excellent antioxidant activity which in turn depends on the geographical origin.
The present study focuses on exploration of antioxidant and antitumour potential as well as total phenolic contents (TPC) of 58 Pakistani honeys involving spectrochemical techniques and potato disk assay.
Agrobacterium tumefaciens was used to induce tumours in potato disks...
It was concluded that Pakistani honeys possessed excellent antioxidant and antitumour potential overall.
