Vietnamese Doctor found the "magic use" of the spiny bitter gourd
The spiny bitter gourd contains substances that can kill 85 to 90% of cancer cells, especially skin and breast cancer. The spiny bitter gourd in Central and North Vietnam has the highest cancer treatment activity.


Dr. Tien Huynh, lecturer of RMIT Mellbourne University (Australia) shared about her research work on spiny bitter gourd in Vietnam.

Dr Tien said that the spiny bitter gourd is very popular and is often used to cook steam sticky rice. In Sri Lanka, this fruit is used to cook curry, and in Thailand is used as a cream. According to research by Dr. Tien Huynh, natural compounds found in spiny bitter gourd are particularly beneficial for health, especially in the treatment of cancer such as melanoma or breast cancer.

The results showed that the spiny bitter gourd had 54 times higher beta-carotene content than carrots and 200 times higher lycopene content than tomatoes. It contains substances that can kill 85 to 90% of cancer cells, especially skin and breast cancer.

Dr. Tien Huynh is the only Vietnamese PhD to be honored in the group of 30 "Superstars of STEM" (Superstars in the field of education STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), organized by the Australian Science and Technology Organization in 8/2017.
