Preservatives are hardly something to celebrate — especially after a wave of chain restaurants (Chipotle, Taco Bell, Panera Bread) and big-brand food companies (General Mills, Campbell's, Kraft) removed preservatives and other artificial ingredients from their products in an attempt to appear healthier and less, well, artificial. But one preservative might totally reverse their reputation for good by victoriously killing cancer cells.
Food is any substance, usually composed of carbohydrates, fats, proteins and water, that can be eaten or drunk by an animal, including humans, for nutrition or pleasure. Items considered food may be sourced from plants, animals or other categories such as fungus or fermented products like alcohol.
