Visit Dr. Duke’s Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical Database

You may query Dr. Duke’s database for phytochemical activities in any plant. For instance I used this database to query herbs with cancer fighting ability, detailed in The Cancer Journal.

It’s interesting to search the phytochemicals and their effects in the plants in your garden or plant foods in your refrigerator! Try searching something simple like Red Clover – this is a principle ingredient in many cancer fighting formulas. I was astounded to find the number of cancer fighting phytochemicals in this simple plant.

You can search the database in the following ways:
