It is estimated that almost two million people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with some form of cancer this year. Of this population, around 600,000 are gauged to pass away from the side effects of this disease. These sobering statistics have prompted many medical professionals to seek better treatment options for cancer – often in the improvements of certain pharmaceutical drugs or radiation therapy.

A rarely-studied option, nevertheless, lies in natural medicine, particularly in the therapeutic benefits of curcumin. The compound, which is found in abundance in turmeric, has been studied to have remarkable anti-tumor abilities. Of particular interest is the exact mechanics of curcumin: It appears that the nutrient not only induces apoptosis (cell death) in various carcinomas but strengthens the immune system as well by flooding the body with potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents.

recent study emphasized this, with researchers suggesting the effectiveness of curcumin in killing thyroid cancer cells. Three different extracts of curcumin were observed for their efficacy at modulating cell activity in thyroid carcinomas. What the researchers saw was astounding: All three extracts inhibited cancer cell growth and protected the body against oxidative damage triggered by injury or inflammation. It was noted that a higher percentage of curcumin showed the greatest effect in improving health.
