More than 54 studies indicate that curcumin can induce cancer cell death.Turmeric is one the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today. This predominant spice is used generously in nearly all Indian meals. Perhaps that’s why India has among the lowest rates of lung,colon, prostrate & breast cancer.
It has it’s own set of mystical properties too. Many say that turmeric was the “Gold” given to Jesus at birth. Turmeric is a golden spice that was and is used in many rites, rituals and spiritual ceremonies. It represents health, prosperity, fertility and spiritual purity.
A research project conducted by GreenMedInfo found that turmeric is capable of replacing a variety of conventional medications designed to treat various conditions including plaque build-up in arteries, inflammation and oxidative stress in type 2 diabetes, inflammatory eye disease, depression, arthritis and many more.
It’s been proven to be a common replacement for aspirin or ibuprofen, offering pain-fighting and anti-inflammatory abilities in a more natural way.

According to greenmedinfo.com, the spice compares to the effects of the following medications:
Lipitor (for cholesterol): A 2008 study published in the journal Drugs in R & D found that a standardized preparation of curcuminoids from Turmeric compared favorably to the drug atorvastatin (trade name Lipitor) on endothelial dysfunction, the underlying pathology of the blood vessels that drives atherosclerosis, in association with reductions in inflammation and oxidative stress in type 2 diabetic patients
Corticosteroids (for an inflammatory eye disease): A study published back in 1999 in the Phytotherapy Research journal has shown that the primary polyphenol in turmeric, saffron pigment known as curcumina, had a better impact than steroids on the management of chronic anterior uveitis, an inflammatory eye disease.
Prozac (antidepressant): A study published in 2011 in the Acta Pharmaceutica Polonie journal revealed that turmeric worked better compared to both drugs in reducing depressive behavior in animals.
Aspirin (blood thinner): In vitro and ex vivo studies, published in 1986 in the Arzneimittelforschung journal found that turmeric has anti-platelet and prostacyclin modulating effect in relation to aspirin, which means that it can be used in patients prone to vascular thrombosis and in anti- -arthritis therapy.
Anti-Inflammatory Drugs :A study published in 2004 in the Oncogene journal, found that turmeric (same as resveratrol) was more effective than aspirin, ibuprofen, sulindac, phenylbutazone, Naproxen, Indomethacin, diclofenac, dexamethasone, celecoxib, and Tamoxifen.
Oxaliplatin : (chemotherapeutic drugs): In 2007 the International Cancer Journal showed that turmeric could be compared with oxaliplatin as an anti proliferative drug in colorectal cell lines.
Metformin (diabetes drug): The Biochemistry and Biophysical journal back in 2009 published a study that examined how turmeric can be valuable in the treatment of diabetes. They found that it activates AMPK (which increases glucose uptake) and suppresses gluconeogenic gene expression (which suppresses the formation of glucose liver) in hematoma cells. Interestingly, they found that turmeric is from 500 times to 100,000 times (in the form known as tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THC)) more potent than metformin in activating AMPK and its
further targeted acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC).
Use organic (non-irradiated) turmeric, in lower culinary doses on a daily basis, but never use greater doses later in life given the fact it may be the basis for a serious illness.
