Curry Kills Cancer Cells

Chemotherapy is not necessary the best treatment for cancer. Often there’s a simple unknown alternative which the giant drug companies are not too favoured that it be known. Also, if it is something so simple, patients tend to be sceptical about it.

Nonetheless, here’s one simple treatment available for esophageal cancer. This is too good to be true, for the Asians consume a lot of curry!

Believe it or not . . .

LONDON – A molecule found in a curry ingredient can kill esophageal cancer cells in the laboratory, suggesting it might be developed as an anti-cancer treatment, scientists said on Wednesday.

Researchers at the Cork Cancer Research Center in Ireland treated esophageal cancer cells with curcumin — a chemical found in the spice turmeric, which gives curries a distinctive yellow color — and found it started to kill cancer cells within 24 hours.

The cells also began to digest themselves, they said in a study published in the British Journal of Cancer.

Previous scientific studies have suggested curcumin can suppress tumors and that people who eat lots of curry may be less prone to the disease, although curcumin loses its anti-cancer attributes quickly when ingested.

But Sharon McKenna, lead author of the Irish study, said her study suggested a potential for scientists to develop curcumin as an anti-cancer drug to treat esophageal cancer.

Cancers of the esophagus kill more than 500,000 people across the world each year. The tumors are especially deadly, with five-year survival rates of just 12 to 31 percent.

McKenna said the study showed curcumin caused the cancer cells to die “using an unexpected system of cell messages.”

Normally, faulty cells die by committing programed suicide, or apoptosis, which occurs when proteins called caspases are ‘switched on’ in cells, the researchers said.

But these cells showed no evidence of suicide, and the addition of a molecule that inhibits caspases and stops this “switch being flicked’ made no difference to the number of cells that died, suggesting curcumin attacked the cancer cells using an alternative cell signaling system.

U.S. researchers said in 2007 they had found curcumin may help stimulate immune system cells in the Alzheimer’s disease.

It is a known fact that drug companies will only spend money on research if the bottom line is attractive and provided too they can come through with a manufactured drug in place to duplicate the natural simple remedy – otherwise it’s counter-productive.

You probably know that there are a number of natural cure for cancer which are completely suppressed by drug companies!

This is all a question of capitalism in operation at the expense of human decency & compassion.

    Dear Paul.

    I have retired since 1999. I am 71 years old. Being a pastor actually I never retire. I still visit a few people whom God entrusted to me.
    I found out that with the modern and improved technology, including what are being
    uitilized in luxurious hospitals and clinics, and with new medicines and the expertise of specialists and super specialists (if I am allowed to use the latter term) I see that more and more old people are with us. But their health are still deteriorating or at leat weakening. But for many even seeing a good doctor is a luxury, not to mention buying medicines, let alone if they have to be hospitalized.

    So for the last three years, I have made it my “additional call” to browse through many responsible good dependable sources of infos through IT. I also read a few books especially on alternative healings and how to keep healthy even in old age, I have to agree with what you wrote. I am rather disappointed that some world famous manufacturers of drugs “cheated” the right of the people on the street to know about
    the “failures” of their decades of researches and hide what are available around those who desperately need the “natural, simple, chepa stuffs” that God has provided since
    the dawn of creation.

    I found out that some bedridden patients who spent almost all that they earned since
    decades vaporised into thin air just because they have been the victims of unethical colaborations between the well-known branded icons of medicines, the doctors, and the detailmen with bonuses promised at the expense not only the sweat and blood of
    honest, hard working people but also the lives of elderly patients.

    I am sorry if I did not mince words. But the rank and file of helpless and hopeless “patients” and potentials patients have to be helped in anyway we can.
    I found out that the slogan of “Prevention is better than cure” is a mockery because all the patients who are lying in the hospitals (including Christian ones) are a bit late if not too late.
