Magnolia are not only pretty, especially when in flower, but researchers have shown that “botanical extract honokiol, a biologically active molecule isolated from the bark of Magnolia spp. holds promise as an adjunct treatment for aggressive bladder and kidney cancers.”

Researcher Jun Yan found that “Honokiol significantly inhibited bladder cancer aggressiveness & tumour progression. 25-30% of patients with metastatic renal cancer cell line, 786-0 ….. have metastatic spread by the time they are diagnosed, with 5-year survival rates less than 10%.”  Go the Magnolia tree!  See – http://bit.ly/1VS5Wb8
