1. CANCER RESEARCH - TVNZ has exclusive details of how a NZ seafood can fight cancer. Research in Australia has found that the liquid from green-lip mussels can kill cancer cells, trials on humans are to start shortly.

They have been searching for something to block those pathways and they have found a compound ‘lipinol’ (spelling?) from the liquid in green-lip mussels could be the product. The mussel industry in NZ says if it proves to work, they do not think they could grow enough mussels to meet the demand as the Marlborough Sounds is the only place in the world where the mussels produce the compound.
