Turmeric and Prostate Cancer


Turmeric with some types of vegetables can actually help prevent and treat prostate cancer, says a new Rutgers study in the January 15 issue of the journal "Cancer Research." Study authors say turmeric demonstrates "significant cancer-preventive qualities in laboratory mice." When the seasoning is combined with phenethyl isothiocyanate, a naturally occurring substance in broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, kohlrabi turnips, and watercress, the combination of the two "could be effective in treating established prostate cancers," say researchers.
