There’s really a lot of info on this site so do browse. This supports and extends the info and critical discussion in my two cancer books. For more information go to www.fightingcancer.com

TURMERIC AND CANCER
Two level tablespoons of Turmeric will yield slightly
more than 2 x 500mg capsules of Curcumin (2.4 capsules, to be exact).
Add ground black pepper to the mix as this works synergistically with turmeric.
Turmeric contains roughly 4% curcumin. That means for every 4mg
> curcumin, you need to take 100mg Turmeric (1:25 ratio). Therefore, to
> get 3 gram (3000mg), you will have to take 75 gm (75000mg) of
> turmeric. If you want to ingest relatively large quantities of
> curcumin, then taking it via turmeric is not the way to go. See
> http://www.turmeric -curcumin. com/ for a discussion on this.
Researchers believe the combination of
and curcumin could be an effective therapy not only to prevent
, but to inhibit the spread of established prostate
cancers. Best of all, this combination- cauliflower spiced with
turmeric-is absolutely delicious! For protection against , cut cauliflower florets in quarters and let sit for 5-10
minutes; this allows time for the production of phenethyl
isothiocyanates, which form when cruciferous vegetables are cut, but
stops when they are heated. Then sprinkle with turmeric, and healthy
sauté on medium heat in a few tablespoons of vegetable or chicken
broth for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and top with olive oil, sea
salt and pepper to taste.
