Turmeric Extract Strikes To The Root Cause of Cancer Malignancy

A new turmeric study published in Cancer Letters is paving the way for a revolution in the way that we both understand and treat cancer. Titled, “Targeting cancer stem cells by curcumin and clinical applications,” U.S. researchers evaluated the primary polyphenol in the Indian spice known as curcumin for its ability to target cancer stem cells (CSCs), which are believed to be at the root cause of tumor formation and malignancy.

The Benefits of Turmeric for Cancer Treatment

is a root crop known for its tough brown skin and bright orange flesh. For more than 5,000 years, this root crop has been cultivated in the tropical regions of Asia. During the 13th century, turmeric was introduced to western countries by Arab traders.

Turmeric has been used in the Chinese and Indian pharmacopoeia for thousands of years. It is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, used in treating several conditions such as toothache, chest pain, urinary tract infection, flatulence, jaundice, menstrual discomforts, bruises, hemorrhage, and colic.

Turmeric’s active ingredient is an extracted compound called curcumin. Studies have shown that curcumin helps prevent several forms of cancer including breast, lung, stomach, liver, and colon because of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It stops the development of cancer by interfering with the cellular signaling aspects of the chronic disease.

Are Facebook Groups Better than Facebook Pages?

If you are like me, you absolutely love Facebook for marketing just about anything.  In my 15 years of marketing online, I have never seen a more viable platform for getting the word out about a product or service.

After several improvements, and company acquisitions, Facebook has become the go-to place for marketers.  With all the hype surrounding Facebook pages, Facebook ads, EdgeRank, etc…one thing tends to get overlooked, and it is one of the features of Facebook that I like the most…the Facebook group.

Working Out

Day 1 Insanity Fit Test Results

Well, it seems that most people are waiting to get their new years resolutions started.  Not I.

I’ve already been working out, getting my Vegetarian & Ketogenic eating habits correct.  I’ve already lost 27lbs.  I’m already running 8 to 10 miles a day, and am already weight lifting 5 days a week (1 day of Yoga too).

But, I was nostalgic.  I remember when I was doing Insanity and how much I truly enjoyed the high impact Insanity workout.  How much the plyometric work changed me, and so I made a rash decision to go ahead and give it another go.
