The Indian spice, Turmeric, has been studied and known to inhibit cancer cell growth for at least a decade.

Turmeric can be purchased very inexpensively at any Whole Foods, most grocery stores, or Indian markets.

Drug companies don't want people to understand this spice is a very effective natural preventative and potential cure for some cancers.

This story should be in the News.

Eat your Turmeric.

You can get Turmeric in capsule form if you don't like the taste. Many people mix the powder into their smoothies. I actually like it in my coffee with cream and try to take it every day in one form or another.

I cook with it regularly. How much is needed to have any effect?

I'm trying turmeric on a splotch of basal cell carcinoma that is due to be removed n 2 weeks. Let's see if this will kill off the offending cancer cells prior to surgical removal. This will be the third day of applying the turmeric as a paste to the site.

You might need to add a bit of DMSO to it to get it in deep enough.

Could be dangerous, though, don't know.

Seems to be working. The area is smaller and more compact with a clear center.

I guess you found the cure for cancer and why India and Pakistan have zero cancer rates.

I always find it interesting that patients will pay for any whack job remedy (stem cells come to mind) but scream and rage about the price of proven, effective medicines.

It's like the patients who come to me with a bag of herbals and are pot smokers. Well............... if those are all so good, why in the world are you here?

Maybe you should just skip the whole Moh's excision. I'm sure your dermatologist will understand and encourage your experimentation.

Fortunately, basal cell will not kill you, but can simply be locally erosive. It is a "cancer" with which you can play around with.

Other lethal cancers are no laughing matter and is not amendable to quackery.

There is a lot of research about the benefits of turmeric. It's not a whack job remedy. It's not an absolute cure, but it definitely helps with inflammation in the body, which is a large contributor to cancer. You would know that if you researched it.
