A recent study from the Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research, School of Life Sciences, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Lausanne 1015, Switzerland shows that GLUT3 is induced during epithelial-mesenchymal transition and promotes tumor cell proliferation in non-small cell lung cancer.” This study was published in the 29 July  2014 issue of the Journal “Cell Metabolism” (the no.1 journal in Metabolism; and I.F: 16.747) by Prof. Etienne Meylan, Masin M and others.

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that:  Consuming brown rice stalls metastatic tumor progression: Germinated brown rice inhibits epithelial-mesenchymal transition and cancer cell proliferation via down regulation of GLUT3.

Significance:  The study presented here suggests, for the first time, that Germinated brown rice, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may decrease the expression of GLUT3. Thereby, it may inhibit glycolysis. Thus, one can consume Germinated brown rice to stall the progression of invasive human tumors.
