MANILA, Philippines – Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Thursday ordered the conduct of intensified inspection in public markets following the seizure of thousands of kilograms of “botcha” or spoiled meat in the capital city since July this year.

According to their research several extracts from horn snails (Telescopium telescopium) may prevent angiogenesis or formation of blood vessels from pre-existing ones.

“By preventing this process to occur, cancer cells are starved and do not grow and spread,” according to the study.

The study was published in journal Acta Medica Philippina last month.

“This study evaluated the potential antiangiogenic activity of Telescopium telescopium or locally known as Bagongon. It is highly abundant in the country and consumed as food by the locals,” the study further reads.
