Curry Eaters Rejoice: It May Cure Cancer

 

Scientists have identified a compound in tumeric that can start to kill cancer cells within 24 hours of introduction. The compound, curcumin, triggers death signals within the cancer cells, causing them to digest themselves.

Curcumin is already being studied as a possible aid in treating arthritis and dementia. Researchers are hoping that the discovery will lead to a treatment for oesophageal cancer.

  Very interesting.  
 
I always thought turmeric and curcumin were the same thing(so far everyone has liked my curries by the way)... for those who may not have read - turmeric has been used as an antiseptic/antibacterial for a very long time. Check it out on wiki, there´s more.
