Recent research has suggested that spicy curry has a specific ingredient that can help fight bowel and colon cancer. It has been reported that the medical properties of curry were initially taken into account by Professor Will Stewart from England's University of Leicester, who discovered that Indian and Pakistani residents had 70% less chances of diagnosed with bowel or colon cancer.
A team of international researchers have proposed that spice turmeric consists Curcumin, which has been found capable of fighting the cancer.
In an experimental analysis in a laboratory, it has been analyzed that the component was capable of fighting artificially prepared cancer cells. Moreover, it has been subjected that the component has several mechanisms to damage cancerous cells of colon.
Professor Stewart said, “One of the major mechanisms is affecting the way that they grow blood vessels into themselves”.
Acknowledging its capability, it has been declared that its human trials will be carried out at a hospital in England. The trial will be including 40 patients with advanced bowel cancer at Leicester General Hospital.
It has been asserted that for the first seven days, participants will be given tablets of curcumin only and will be later on shifted to their chemotherapy drugs.
It is being expected that curcumin will help increase effectiveness of chemotherapy and also decrease its side-effects.
