Turmeric extract

Natural Heath magazine had an article this month about the possible benefits of turmeric (curcumin). Th article is entitled, “Prevent Cancer with Turmeric.” It appears on page 28 of Natural Health’s August 2003 issue. It’s not online yet, but their web site is http://www.naturalhealthmag.com

If you’re interested, please contact me, and I’ll email a copy to you to read.

Some highlights are reports of tests done on mice with colon and prostate cancer. Nothing about MM here, but we do know about some in vitro tests done at MD Anderson with human myeloma cells. The article’s author (Meghann Peterson) says, “Research strongly supports turmeric’s antioxidant benefits. It could help prevent and treat cancer, but more human studies are needed.”
