11 Proven Benefits of Avocado

9. Avocado may help keep cancer away

Disclaimer: There is limited evidence that avocado may be beneficial in preventing cancer.

But there is one study showed that it may help reduce side effects of chemotherapy in human lymphocytes (31). Avocado extract has also been shown to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells (32).

However, keep in mind that these studies were done in isolated cells and don’t really prove anything about what happens in a living, breathing human.
