Eat that Curry!

While known in the ancient healing system of Ayurveda for their many medicinal properties, turmeric and its components are getting new recognition in the world of medicine. Researchers at the Cork Cancer Research Centre in Cork, Ireland have been studying curcumin with exciting results. A component of turmeric, curcumin has been found to kill some cancer cells in twenty-fours.Information about the findings can be found on the Centre's web site, and much of the story can be found at the BBC news link posted today

The Research Centre is also exploring the use of probiotics in colorectal cancer prevention and treatment. The Web site is worth checking out and passing on to whomever is interested in innovative cancer research - the Cork Cancer Research Centre -

Curry never looked so delicious.
