In brief: Yes

It is not a fruit, but in europe, quercetin is used instead of tamoxifen in some areas.
Quercetin is a supplement that blocks estrogen receptors and blocks allergy reactions too.

I am unfamiliar with any clinical trials tha have demonstrated any benefit of Quercetin for the prevention or treatment of breast cancer. I assume that you are not recommending that Quercetin can replace Tamoxifen for any woman that is currently taking this drug?

In brief: No.

Not that I am aware.

In brief: No.

Tamoxifen is a serm (selective estrogen receptor modulator) that is used to treat or even prevent certain types of breast cancer.
It is a synthetic drug and is not found in any foods.
