Christmas food and palm oil


“Eldiario.es” publishes an article about palm oil and Christmas food. The article includes Salvador Aznar Benitah’s opinion and information about what is palm oil used for in the food industry.

Salvador Aznar Benitah, ICREA researcher at IRB Barcelona, has recently published a study in Nature that identifies metastasis-initiating cells through a specific marker, namely the protein CD36. This protein, which is found in the membranes of tumour cells, is responsible for taking up fatty acids. CD36 activity and dependence on lipid (fat) metabolism distinguish metastasis-initiating cells from other tumour cells.
