Turmeric Curcumin Reprogramming Cancer Cell Death

January 2, 2016

DESCRIPTION: The spice turmeric appears to be able to switch back on the self-destruct mechanism within cancer cells.

This is the last of a three part video series on turmeric and cancer. If you missed the first two, check out: Back to Our Roots: Curry (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/back-…) and Carcinogen Blocking Effects of Turmeric Curcumin (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/carci…).


Other herbs and spices such as garlic (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/1-ant…) and amla (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/some-…) have similar selective effects against cancer cell.

I talk more about this concept of “apoptosis,” programmed cell death in:
• Clonal Deletion Theory of Immunity (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/clona…)
• Ex Vivo Cancer Proliferation Bioassay (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/devel…)
• Is It the Diet, the Exercise, or Both? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-it…)
• The Answer to the Pritikin Puzzle (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-a…)

What else can turmeric do? Here’s the videos I have so far (with more on the way!):
• Who Shouldn’t Consume Curcumin or Turmeric? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/who-s…)
• Turmeric Curcumin and Rheumatoid Arthritis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/turme…)
• Boosting the Bioavailability of Curcumin (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/boost…)
• Spicing Up DNA Protection (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/spici…)
• Which Spices Fight Inflammation? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/which…)
• Turmeric Curcumin and Osteoarthritis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/turme…)

Stay tuned for another 3-part cancer series coming up in a week or two:
1. Phytates for the Prevention of Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phyta…)
2. Phytates for Rehabilitating Cancer Cells (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phyta…)
3. Phytates for the Treatment of Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phyta…)

Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/turme… and he’ll try to answer it!
