Cancer.
The anthocyanin pigment prevent some types of cancer specially the malignat amd bening tumors

The anthocyanin pigment works of the Purple Corn ( Zea Mays ) against the carcinogen (PhIP, 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine mama? That question was put to the test in rats first treated with a carcinogen (1,2-dimethylhydrazine) that also targets the mammary gland, prostate, and large intestine in rats and causes colorectal cancer. Carcinogen is the most abundant of around other types found in cooked meats and fish. Both the early signs of colorectal cancers and the numbers of malignant and benign tumors


Colon cancer is the second most deadly of all forms of cancer. The one that affects the colon is more frequent in women, and the rectal cancer is more common in men. In Nagoya University, Japan, a group of researchers from the School of Medicine has demonstrated found that the purple pigment in the "Zea Mays" impedes the development of cancer in the colon. In laboratory experiments, sample groups received food mixed with a natural cancerigenic substance which is found in the charred parts of roasted meat and fish, and another group also received 5% pigment of purple corn. In the group that was fed the cancer causing substance, 85% developed colon cancer, compared with only 40% that also received the pigment.

Purple Corn side effects : Purple corn it is a corn variety, no side effects have been reported

Research.

The results of several epidemiologic studies indicate that regular consumption of foods rich in polyphenolic compounds is associated with reduced risk of developing cardiovascular disease and certain cancers. Recent experimental studies in both animals and humans have shown that increasing polyphenol intake can protect LDL cholesterol from becoming oxidized (a key step in developing atherosclerosis), lower blood pressure in hypertensive subjects, reduce the tendency of the blood to clot and elevate total antioxidant capacity of the blood. After they are swallowed, anthocianins are easily detected in the blood. This was explained by Passamonti & col. (2003) who demonstrated that the stomach participates actively in the absorption of these compounds.

In a pre-clinical study, Tsuda & col. (2003) studied the effects of Purple corn (Zea Mays) on obesity and diabetes. compared two sample groups. They consumed a diet rich in fats during 12 weeks, but one of the groups also received purple corn pigments. Compared with the control group the group consuming anthocyaninins didnít gain any weight, nor suffered hypertrophy in the adiposites of the fat tissues, didnít show hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, hyperleptinemia, or increase in levels of the genetic codes that produce the factor or tumoral necrosis or the enzymes related to the synthesis of fatty acids and trilglicerol. In comparison, the group that didnít receive the extract and ate only a fat rich diet, showed an increase of more than 100% in all those parameters. Thus, there are good nutritional and biochemical reasons to use the anthocianins present in purple corn, with obvious benefits for the prevention of obesity and diabetes.

It is known that the colon and rectum cancer is the second most deadly of all forms of cancer. The one that affects the colon is more frequent in women, and the rectal cancer is more common in men. In Nagoya University, Japan, a group of researchers from the School of Medicine has demonstrated that the pigment in purple corn impedes the development of cancer in the colon. In laboratory experiments, sample groups received food mixed with a natural cancerigenic substance which is found in the charred parts of roasted meat and fish, and another group also received 5% pigment of purple corn. In the group that was fed the cancer causing substance, 85% developed colon cancer, compared with only 40% that also received the pigment.

Anti-tumoral
Most flavonoids have anti-cancer properties.

Anti-oxidant
Digging deeper, the most abundant anthocyanin found in purple corn, induce the cellular antioxidant system.

Hypertension
Reduce blood pressure, and by helping to eliminate toxins and wastes from the body. The zea may may relieve gout and arthritis, and act as a gentle detoxifying remedy.

Properties :

Anthocyanins, which are used as a food coloring, are widely distributed in human diets, suggesting that we ingest large amounts of anthocyanins from plant-based foods. Mice were fed control, cyanidin 3-glucoside-rich purple corn color (PCC), high fat (HF) or HF + PCC diet for 12 wk. Dietary PCC significantly suppressed the HF dietĖinduced increase in body weight gain, and white and brown adipose tissue weights. Feeding the HF diet markedly induced hypertrophy of the adipocytes in the epididymal white adipose tissue compared with the control group. In contrast, the induction did not occur in the HF + PCC group. The HF diet induced hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia and hyperleptinemia. These perturbations were completely normalized in rats fed HF + PCC. An increase in the tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-{alpha} mRNA level occurred in the HF group and was normalized by dietary PCC. These results suggest that dietary PCC may ameliorate HF dietĖinduced insulin resistance in mice. PCC suppressed the mRNA levels of enzymes involved in fatty acid and triacylglycerol synthesis and lowered the sterol regulatory element binding protein-1 mRNA level in white adipose tissue. These down-regulations may contribute to triacylglycerol accumulation in white adipose tissue. Our findings provide a biochemical and nutritional basis for the use of PCC or anthocyanins as a functional food factor that may have benefits for the prevention of obesity and diabetes

On the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Web site (which is part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health) there are "Fact Sheets." On November 27, 2002, the NCI posted information about red wine and cancer prevention. They noted that polyphenols, found in the skin and seeds of grapes, have anti-oxidant properties, and research has shown they may inhibit development of certain cancers.
