According to Dr. Andrew Weil, recent research on both turmeric and curcumin are very promising: ^
“Curcumin seems to delay liver damage that can eventually lead to cirrhosis, according to an experimental preliminary study at the Medical University of Graz in Austria. Research at Kansas State University found that adding certain spices, have turmeric, can reduce levels of heterocyclic amines, carcinogenic compounds that form when meats are grilled, boiled or fried , up to 40%.
Rodent studies at the University of Texas indicate that curcumin inhibits the growth of skin cancer and melanoma and also slows the spread of breast cancer in the lungs.
Epidemiologists have suggested that turmeric, which is one of the daily curries consumed in India, can help explain the low rate of Alzheimer’s disease in this country. Among people aged 70 to 79, the rate is one-quarter lower than in the United States.
