Studies have shown that Turmeric helps prevent several forms of cancer including breast, lung, stomach, liver, and colon because of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. According to various studies Turmeric can help stop the development of cancer by interfering with the cellular signaling aspects of the chronic disease. However if you are currently getting chemotherapy please consult your doctor as turmeric may have an adverse effect on your treatment.
For those of you that are on the road to recovery and have finished treatment, you may want to consider using Turmeric in your regular diet. There are herbal teas, seasonings, etc. For best results you may consider buying the root from your local health food store and grating the root directly into your tea or food. It is completely up to you. There are many receipts online that may interest you. Again consult your doctor before implementing anything new.
