Turmeric beats traditional treatment for brain cancer

Turmeric beats traditional treatment for brain cancer, according to recent medical research.

It is safe to say, there is no spice in the world known by scientists that is more powerful for health than turmeric. There are so many reasons why you should eat turmeric every day.

Turmeric has received a lot of attention lately due to the power of social media and the overwhelming number of studies on the potent spice.

MEDLINE, the medical study database for example has over 10,000 studies on turmeric alone.

The study on turmeric for treating brain cancer reported the following:

“A total of 19 in vitro and five in vivo studies were analyzed. All of the studies indicated that curcumin decreased glioblastoma cell viability through various pathways (i.e. decrease in prosurvival proteins such as nuclear factor κB, activator protein 1, and phosphoinositide 3 kinase, and upregulation of apoptotic pathways like p21, p53, and executor caspase 3). Curcumin treatment also increased animal survival compared with control groups.”

The authors concluded:

“Curcumin inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in certain subpopulations of glioblastoma tumors, and its ability to target multiple signaling pathways involved in cell death makes it an attractive therapeutic agent. As such, it should be considered as a potent anticancer treatment. Further experiments are warranted to elucidate the use of a bioavailable form of curcumin in clinical trials.”

In other words, turmeric showed promise in treating glioblastoma, which is a deadly form of brain cancer.
