10% of childhood cancers are neuroblastomas often found in the neck, chest, spinal cord or adrenal gland. Limonoids found in citrus fruits have been able to stop the progression of neuroblastomas in the lab. It also produces no side effects unlike the currently used toxic cancer drugs. Further research is needed to determine how the substance achieves this effect and how it may be used in human cancers. Both flavenoids and limonoids may be capable of stopping, slowing or killing cancer cells. Ultimately these compounds could be used as food additives as a preventative measure.
