The main principle of the experiment was to examine if anti-cancer agents decrease the germination and protein content in the experimental seeds, which include mung beans (Vigna radiata), black chick peas (Cicer arietinum), and wheat germs (Triticum aestivum).
This assumption is due to the differential effects of turmeric on germination and protein content when turmeric (Curcuma longa) extract or turmeric powder is combined with other anti-cancer compounds. The mass and the length of their sprouts will vary by the combinations created using turmeric and other anti-cancer agents, including cumin (Nigella sativa), pepper (Piper nigrum), ginger (Zingiber officinale), and hibiscus (Hibiscus sabdariffa) and beet (Beta vulgaris). During germination, there is often a high level of water absorption by the seeds if they are soaked in tap water; therefore, germination in tap water was used as a control.
Independent Variables: the impact of anti-cancer agent(s)
The pH level of the anti-cancer compounds
Control Group: Seeds soaked in tap water
Dependent Variables: the germination of the seeds (difference between control and experimental groups)
The percentage of germination
