Spice Turmeric May Protect Against Breast And Colon Cancer

In the American Institute for Cancer Research article titled "Can Curry Kill Cancer Cells?", research has seen evidence that the spice turmeric, which contains the active ingredient curcumin, may reduce the formation of breast and colon cancer cells.

Some side-effects of turmeric, however, are increased bile flow, which may aggravate gall bladder problems, and stomach upsets if used in too high a concentration. Also, it is best to use turmeric rather than curry. Some curry's contain very little turmeric.
