Dr Dukes Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical Database

Visit Dr. Duke’s Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical Database [1]

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 [2].

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.
