Scientists have known for a long time that plants in a laboratory may produce methyl salicylate, which is a chemical form of acetylsalicylic acid, or aspirin.
For years, scientists have known that plants in a laboratory may produce methyl salicylate, which is a chemical form of acetylsalicylic acid, or aspirin.
According to a recent National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), when walnut trees are stressed, they emit methyl salicylate, which is a chemical form of aspirin.

Topical products containing methyl salicylate distract the pain perception by causing cooling/warming skin sensations.
It's not a huge stretch to think that if salicylate induces programmed cell death in plants to kill infected cells, maybe it's doing similar things in the animal kingdom to enhance the death of aberrant cells causing cancer," said Prof Burn."
