Turmeric Targets Root Cause Of Cancer Tumor Development

turmeric-targets-cancer

Did you know that a clinical study published during 2014 in the journal Cancer Letters revealed that Turmeric apparently strikes at the root cause of cancerous tumor development?

Do you know that a most important aspect of preparedness (for life) is one’s own health?

Do you know that ‘if’ a natural remedy or cure were proven to be effective towards targeting something like cancer, that the pharmaceutical industry would likely do everything in its power to ignore it, diminish it, or squash it?


 
Earlier I had written an article about Turmeric being a ‘super spice’ whereby I pointed out that it has a very high ORAC value (ORAC measures the antioxidant capacity of foods). It was therefore interesting to stumble across the following study some time afterwards, so I decided to share it with you for your health interest…

Evidently the component in turmeric — curcumin — can strike at the ‘root cause’ of cancerous tumor formation. The study found that curcumin is able to selectively kill cancer cells while maintaining healthy cells.

The study author concludes,

“Curcumin, as well as its modified forms (analogues or nanoparticle-encapsulated formulations), has shown great potential to inhibit CSCs (Cancer Stem Cells) in several types of cancer both in cell cultures and in mouse models, including glioma, breast, colorectal, pancreatic, brain, and esophageal cancers.

Some analogues (e.g., CDF) and formulations (e.g., nanotechnology-based formulation) have exhibited improved efficacy against CSC-like cells and greater growth-inhibitory capacity in tumors. It is promising to evaluate curcumin and its modified forms in other types of CSCs.”

Study title: “Targeting cancer stem cells by curcumin and clinical applications”

The Power of Cooking with Turmeric

Dr. Saraswati Sukumar, a cancer doctor (medical oncologist) at Johns Hopkins,is a frequent user of turmeric. She knows how curcumin (the active component in turmeric) can provide health benefits and how it can easily be incorporated into your daily life. She apparently uses it daily in her kitchen and has built a good portion of her professional reputation on touting the benefits of this powerful root.

“The health benefits are many, many. For example, for those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, who have painful swelling in the knees, turmeric is a great way to suppress the inflammation,”

“The problem with the pill is that it is very insoluble in water,” “The better way to take it, I feel, is to use it in your cooking very extensively. If you have any sauté, just sprinkle it in. The moment you heat oil and add turmeric to it, it now becomes completely bio-available to you.”

-Dr. Sukumar

 
Apparently not all sources of curcumin are equal. As Dr. Sukumar points out, your body can get the most benefits when you add it to your cooking. Also, apparently adding black pepper will increase the percentage of absorption.

Note: Purchase your Turmeric from reputable sources, brands. I have read that there are inferior and/or counterfeit spices out there… Remember, ‘you get what you pay for’. The cheap stuff is probably that… ‘cheap’.

Note: Apparently not to be used during pregnancy.
