Indian Study: Vinegar Test Cuts Cervical Cancer Death Rate

Doctors from Mumbai, India are reporting success in cutting the number of cervical cancer deaths using a simple household staple -- vinegar.

Presenting their study at a conference in Chicago Sunday, the doctors say they were able to cut the number of deaths by 31 percent in their study involving 150,000 women.

They say that swabbing the cervix with vinegar causes pre-cancerous tissues to turn white, leading to early prevention and treatment.

The researchers say this simple test could save the lives of tens of thousands of women in developing countries who cannot afford or have no access to Pap smears -- the standard cervical cancer test in wealthier countries.

Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women in India and many other developing countries.
