Cancer is a hyperproliferative disorder that is usually treated by chemotherapeutic agents that are toxic not only to tumor cells but also to normal cells, so these agents produce major side effects. In addition, these agents are highly expensive and thus not affordable for most. Moreover, such agents cannot be used for cancer prevention. Traditional medicines are generally free of the deleterious side effects and usually inexpensive. Curcumin, a component of turmeric Curcuma longa , is one such agent that is safe, affordable, and efficacious. How curcumin kills tumor cells is the focus of this review. How curcumin selectively kills tumor cells, and not normal cells, is also described in detail.

At this time, there isn't enough evidence to recommend curcumin for preventing or treating cancer, but research is ongoing. Curcumin, a substance found in the spice turmeric, has long been used in Asian medicine to treat a variety of maladies. Now some research suggests that curcumin may help prevent or treat cancer. Curcumin is thought to have antioxidant properties, which means it may decrease swelling and inflammation. It's being explored as a cancer treatment in part because inflammation appears to play a role in cancer. Laboratory and animal research suggests that curcumin may prevent cancer, slow the spread of cancer, make chemotherapy more effective and protect healthy cells from damage by radiation therapy.

Turmeric lattes have become one of the trendiest drinks order of late, however a study has found that it may kill cancer cells when used in nanoparticles. The research published in Nanoscale revealed how nanoparticles loaded up with an ingredient of the spice turmeric could treat neuroblastoma. The curcumin chemical in turmeric has shown promise destroying neuroblastoma tumour cells. However, the curcumin chemical in turmeric has shown promise destroying neuroblastoma tumour cells. The researchers believe that if this new treatment works, it could provide a less toxic and unpleasant way to treat patients than traditional treatments such as chemotherapy. Tamarah J. In the study, cerium oxide nanoparticles loaded with curcumin and coated in dextran were shown to cause "substantial" cell death in neuroblastoma cells while having little impact on healthy cells.

Anti-Carcinogenic Herbs & Spices

Spices have been widely used as food flavorings and folk medicines for thousands of years. Numerous studies have documented the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects of spices, which might be related to prevention and treatment of several cancers, including lung, liver, breast, stomach, colorectum, cervix, and prostate cancers. Several spices are potential sources for prevention and treatment of cancers, such as Curcuma longa tumeric , Nigella sativa black cumin , Zingiber officinale ginger , Allium sativum garlic , Crocus sativus saffron , Piper nigrum black pepper and Capsicum annum chili pepper , which contained several important bioactive compounds, such as curcumin, thymoquinone, piperine and capsaicin. The main mechanisms of action include inducing apoptosis, inhibiting proliferation, migration and invasion of tumors, and sensitizing tumors to radiotherapy and chemotherapy. This review summarized recent studies on some spices for prevention and treatment of cancers, and special attention was paid to bioactive components and mechanisms of action.

People are impacted themselves or through a relative or friend. My goal with this article is to help others learn about ways of killing and preventing cancer. I have lived an overall healthy lifestyle aside from loving a good cocktail every once in a while and have done a considerable amount of research on nutrition for the majority of my adult life. When I worked for Gatorade several years ago, I helped create a strength and nutrition program for all of our employees to help each of us better understand the impacts of exercise and nutrition on our bodies.

    The main difference between chemotherapy and vitamin or herbal supplements is that most chemotherapy is designed to kill cancer cells, while most supplements are designed to strengthen the immune system so that it can then remove cancer cells.
