DESCRIPTION: The spice turmeric appears to be able to switch back on the self-destruct mechanism within cancer cells.

This is the last of a three part video series on turmeric and cancer. If you missed the first two, check out: Back to Our Roots: Curry (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/back-to-our-roots-curry-and-cancer) and Carcinogen Blocking Effects of Turmeric Curcumin (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/carcinogen-blocking-effects-of-turmeric-curcumin).

Other herbs and spices such as garlic (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/1-anticancer-vegetable/) and amla (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/some-ayurvedic-medicine-worse-than-lead-paint-exposure/) have similar selective effects against cancer cell.

I talk more about this concept of “apoptosis,” programmed cell death in:
• Clonal Deletion Theory of Immunity (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/clonal-deletion-theory-of-immunity/)
• Ex Vivo Cancer Proliferation Bioassay (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/developing-an-ex-vivo-cancer-proliferation-bioassay/)
• Is It the Diet, the Exercise, or Both? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-it-the-diet-the-exercise-or-both/)
• The Answer to the Pritikin Puzzle (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-answer-to-the-pritikin-puzzle/)

What else can turmeric do? Here’s the videos I have so far (with more on the way!):
• Who Shouldn’t Consume Curcumin or Turmeric? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/who-shouldnt-consume-curcumin-or-turmeric/)
• Turmeric Curcumin and Rheumatoid Arthritis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/turmeric-curcumin-and-rheumatoid-arthritis/)
• Boosting the Bioavailability of Curcumin (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/boosting-the-bioavailability-of-curcumin/)
• Spicing Up DNA Protection (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/spicing-up-dna-protection/)
• Which Spices Fight Inflammation? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/which-spices-fight-inflammation/)
• Turmeric Curcumin and Osteoarthritis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/turmeric-curcumin-and-osteoarthritis/)

Stay tuned for another 3-part cancer series coming up in a week or two:

2. Phytates for Rehabilitating Cancer Cells (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phytates-for-rehabilitating-cancer-cells)

Does curcumin fight against all cancers?

kimbanyc says:

Attractive for drug development because is not bio-available to the extent necessary to be therapeutic, i.e. a death sentence for the cancer cells. Right?

Rosa H says:

"Attractive candidate… for supper?" Hahaha! 😂

kaiyodei says:

so they are on human trials right now with this right?

".. we are what we eat .." = BS to the power of indefinite !!
just ONE example – wolf eating sheep all his live does NOT become sheep ..
we are NOT what we eat, we are indefinite conciousness inhabiting a physical body, which is essentially(!) depending on our spiritual attitutde, rather than on what we eat –
even eating NOTHING will keep it "going" ..

AttentionJunkie says:

Started taking a bit over a tablespoon a day. Powder in water is unpleasant but just wash it down with some tea or something.

ClassicCartoons says:

NutritionalFacts, whats your opinion on ketogenic diet? Ca you do  a video about this topic? Much appreciation for your effort.

alun williams says:

add black pepper

BijouLover8 says:

Grow fresh turmeric and ginger in your back yard in about 6-8 mos and never run out of It. Buy a wheatgrass juicer and no need to peel them….take the juice out of each. From turmeric is the CURCUMIN. PUT EQUAL PARTS OF EACH IN A BLENDER AND WARMED GOOD HONEY….not store bought. Blend all three together and add Pepperine if you choose. Doing it this way…fresh…….turmeric has its own turmeric oil. Nature is great. Each morning place a tablespoon or so in a few ounces of silk coconut milk. Tastes like egg nog. The dried power in capsules are pretty much useless….all processed out. Do it this way and you will definitely feel the difference…..super energy. Honey is a preservative, so no need to refrig. It's ready to go each morning. FRESH GINGER AND TURMERIC AND HONEY…THATS THE CURE!

Not a bad video but because of all the pro vegan BS not sure whether to believe it

Masoud Abdun-Noor says:

I'm shocked that there's yet to be a heavily publicized study about the benefits of Black Seed nigella sativa in the West as of yet. It's used as more of a medicinal additive than a spice in many Islamic societies but the benefits are overwhelming.
