ఆఫ్రికా ఖండములో వింత చెట్టు

Moringa Oliefera, Horse raddish, mulaga kaya chettu 

దేశ కాల పరిస్థితులకు అనుగుణంగా అత్యంత వేగంగా -
తమను తాము మలుచుకుని, పెరుగుతూ, నిలదొక్కుకునగలవు వృక్ష జాతి.
ఆఫ్రికా ఖండములో - ములగ చెట్టు
(అక్కడ, కొన్ని ప్రదేశాలలో  హార్స్ రాడిష్ అనేపేరును కూడా కలిగినది)
మనకు వింతగానే అనిపించవచ్చును కదా!
ఈ ఫొటోలో గమనించండి.

Moringa (botanical name “Moringa olefeira”) or Sahijan  (सहजन)
also called Drumstick tree or
Horseradish tree is a versatile tree
useful not only for human beings but also for animals
and also in various industrial applications.
People in India have been using it as an item of
their daily food for nearly 5000 years.

Recent research:
   Indian scientists have discovered
an even more tantalising application of Moringa oleifera,
the drumstick plant "murunga", liquid extracted from its leaves
can prevent lethal radiation damage to living tissues.
The discovery by radiobiologists
at the Jawaharlal Nehru Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Bhopal,
raises fresh hopes that
compounds from medicinal plants might emerge
a major source of natural drugs
that could prevent the harmful effects
of radiation damage to living tissues.
  The drumstick  might one day find use in improving
the efficiency of cancer treatment with radiation 
because it can reduce the severe side-effects of radiotherapy.
Radiation damage to normal tissues in the body
lead to the adverse effects associated with radiotherapy.
   Researchers in Japan and elsewhere had shown
that Moringa Oleffera extracts had antitumour and anti- inflammatory agents.
