Were you aware of the fact that East Indians have considerably lower rates of cancer? Here is what d-r Carolyn Andersons says about this fact.
East Indians are less likely to develop cancer even though they are more exposed to carcinogens in their environment then people from the West. As she was researching the literature on cancer prevention and treatment, she found statistics that were really remarkable. The ratios are the following:
- East Indians have 1/5 as many breast cancer cases as North Americans at the same age!
- East Indians have 1/8 as many lung cancer cases as North Americans at the same age!
- East Indians have 1/9 as many colon cancers as North Americans at the same age!
- East Indians have 1/50 of our rate of prostate cancer!
So, what is the reason for this significant different in cancer rates?
There are only three answers, according to d-r Anderson:
- Turmeric is a spice which can do wonders for you.
If you’ve never seen or tried turmeric, it’s a yellow powdered spice made from the root of a plant in East India. It’s also one of the components of yellow curry. It enriches the flavor of food and is added to malts, yoghurt etc.
Turmeric includes some powerful anti-inflammatory properties. There is no other food ingredient which is more efficient in decreasing inflammation in the body. Curcumin is the ingredient in turmeric which is responsible for this effect. It prevents the development of many types of cancer like colon, prostate, ovarian, breast and brain cancer. It also reduces the development of new blood vessels that feed the tumor.
- Scientists should take a better look at this remedy.
This spice has been used in China, India and the Middle East for more than two millennia. Bharat Aggarwal, a professor from Houston, Texas was the first scientist who showed that curcumin is very helpful against cancer. He proved the extraordinary effects of this ingredient on breast cancer tumors inserted on mice, even when these tumors didn’t react to chemotherapy anymore. Only a regular dietary dose of curcumin lowered the increasing of the metastases in these mice. We should all consume turmeric but how and how often?
- Increase the anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric.
Combining food can sometimes increase the benefit. When turmeric is consumed by itself or in a capsule form, it is very weakly absorbed through the intestines. When it is combined with pepper or ginger, as in yellow curry, it will pass the intestinal obstruction. The body absorption of turmeric is increased by 2000% when it’s mixed with pepper. It also must be dissolved in olive oil.
This is the miraculous formula:
- ¼ of a teaspoon of turmeric powder
- Half a teaspoon of olive oil
- A pinch of black pepper
Mix all of the mentioned ingredients. This kind of a mixture can be added in soups, salad dressings, vegetables or cooked meats. The best option for you is to consume it as often as you can.
