Turmeric and Cancer

In experiments on tumours, Curcumin was shown to "directly and irreversibly" affect the growth of new cancers. It emerges to suppress the onset of tumours as well as their development and metastasis. Researchers and doctors of various health centres have been very excited about the possibilities of using Curcumin to treat cancer. In their words, Curcumin is, "an exciting compound because it can be taken orally and may not have any side effects for cancer patients."

Curcumin and Lung Cancer:
Curcumin also appears to diminish the risk of lung cancer connected with smoking. Experiments on Curcumin and nicotine, a powerful cancer-causing chemical, showed that Curcumin reduced the effects of nicotine as a carcinogen by 50%. Curcumin particularly showed noteworthy potential in the reducing the chances of lung cancer, colon cancer, and as an anticipatory for cancer in the liver, duodenum, and kidneys. Doctors stress that more research is needed, but the initial results about Curcumin and cancer are very encouraging. These scientific findings give the impression to be confirming what millions of Indians already know about the health benefits of Turmeric, and Curcumin.

Curcumin and Prostate Cancer:
Curcumin appears to slow or prevent the augmentation of prostate cancer, the most widespread cancer in American men. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American men, surpassed only by lung cancer in total number of deaths. On average, an American man has about a 30 percent risk of having prostate cancer in his life span. As you grow, your risk of prostate cancer augments. By age 50, up to one in four men have some cancerous cells in the prostate gland. By age 80, that number has increased to one in two. In a study of prostate cancer cells, Curcumin inhibited cell growth, thus demonstrating a potential for slowing the progression of prostate cancer. Researchers concluded that Curcumin may provide "an alternative, nontoxic" means of treating prostate cancer in men.

Curcumin and Breast Cancer:
Curcumin has shown potential as a cure for breast cancer. Researchers in China found out that Curcumin exerts numerous suppressive effects on human breast carcinoma cells. Other researchers note that the results of studies on Curcumin and breast cancer are miscellaneous and that more research is needed. As always, consult your doctor before adding any herbal supplements to your treatment and course of therapy.

Colorectal cancer and Curcumin
Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths in the Western world. More than 56,000 newly identified colorectal cancer patients die each year in the United States. Researchers at the University of California studied the effects of Curcumin on colorectal cancer and found that "Curcumin should be considered as a safe, non-toxic, and easy to use chemotherapeutic agents for colorectal cancers arise in the setting of chromosomal instability as well as microsatellite instability.” Treatment with Curcumin has smaller amount of side effects than some other cancer treatment. One researcher wrote, "Naturally occurring COX-2 inhibitors such as Curcumin and certain phytosterols have been proven to be effective as chemopreventive agents against colon carcinogenesis with negligible gastrointestinal toxicity."
