When Bilal Qizilbash (B.S. in biology, M.S. in medical sciences) discovered that juiced leafy kale would selectively kill melanoma cancer cells in vitro while leaving non-cancerous cells alone, he’d had a breakthrough and a realization that there was an opportunity to help humanity by developing a product that makes it easy and unintimidating for people to add kale to their diets.
As the CEO of EasyKale Labs, he's continuing his research into the cancer-fighting properties of kale, while offering a next-generation product for making kale consumption easier: Bilal's EasyKale® and joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Cancer Prevention Channel to discuss.
