Prostate Cancer May Have Met Its Match!

In All Health Watch, Cancer, Featured Article

Can a spice in your kitchen cabinet prevent prostate cancer? One doctor says it can prevent and treat cancer. Many others agree with him.

As we explained on Tuesday, Dr. Ah-Ng Tony Kong’s study used a common spice to stop the growth of cancerous tumors. Dr. Kong’s research showed that the secret spice “significantly retarded” growth of cancerous tumors. Many others studies concur. The spice can prevent, control, or kill prostate cancer.

The secret spice is turmeric. It’s also known as curcumin. But don’t run to the kitchen yet. Here’s how it works…

It stops the growth of blood vessels that supply cancerous tumors. It also protects cells from damage. Research goes back 50 years to indicate its effectiveness.

More Powerful Proof

Dr. Kong has found a way to make the turmeric weapon more powerful. He tested the spice on prostate cancer cells… but not along. He combined the turmeric with PEITC, a naturally occurring substance found in broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and watercress.

“The bottom line is that PEITC and curcumin, alone or in combination, demonstrate significant cancer-preventive qualities,” says Dr. Kong.

He discovered that using PEITC and turmeric together produced even stronger effects. It might be time to start looking for those Indian vegetable curry recipes!

Dr. Subhash Gautam is an immunologist with Henry Ford Health System. He’s published over 60 peer-reviewed studies. He’s also a native of India. He believes high turmeric consumption and low prostate-cancer rates in India is not a coincidence.

“It’s highly plausible that eating three meals a day, each with a spoonful of turmeric – as Indian men have done for thousands of years – could be chemo preventive.”

Go for the Gold

Prostate cancer now has something to fear – the golden yellow spice. Who would have thought the secret weapon could be in your spice rack?

You probably want to know… How do you get more “gold”? You can always add Indian curry to your diet. But there are several available forms of turmeric. It’s found in capsules and fluid extract. The capsules are the simple way to go – cheap, too.

According to the University of Maryland Medicine Center, the recommended dose is 400 to 600 mg, three times per day. You can buy 720-mg turmeric capsules here. You only need to take two of those per day. Makes it easy, right?

If capsules aren’t your thing, go to the grocery store. Buy some turmeric, broccoli, cauliflower, and kale… and have everyone over for Indian curry night. You might save some lives.

Dr. Kong’s study alone is a breakthrough for those with prostate cancer. Overwhelming global support and historical research reflect the medicinal importance of turmeric in many ways.

Is it crazy to think that a golden yellow spice could cure prostate cancer? Of course not. But, it’s even crazier that it’s probably in your kitchen! Now you know.
