The plants being continue broadly used by their properties healing and preventive in the traditional medicine, that which represents the habitual practice of the world population's 79% approximately. Additionally the plants have been source of useful bioproducts in the treatment of illnesses like in their prevention. The natural antimutagens present in the diet constitutes an important option as agents quimiopreventive against the cancer and other sufferings of risk, since most of the mutagenesis inhibitors of the coming from other sources can cause adverse effects.
