Curry in Your Diet Fights Cancer

Turmeric, a main ingredient of curry, has been used liberally in Indian cooking, for centuries. Its yellow pigment called curcumin helps ward off many diseases including cancer. Recent studies have shown that curcumin inhibits the growth of many cancers including prostate cancer, colon cancer, breast cancer, and may even prevent and slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease by removing amyloyd plaque buildup in the brain. It is very easy to get this wonderful healing spice into your diet and you don't have to be talented in the preparation of indian dishes. I simply keep a container of Turmeric and Curry Powder in my cupboard which you can buy in any spice section of the supermarket. I sprinkle it on many dishes to add lots of flavor and zest. I love it on baked chicken, eggs, and ground turkey, and I cook it into rice dishes and pasta dishes as well as sprinkle it on potates. Another super easy way to add it to your diet is to sprinkle some into your soups. If you are pregnant, please consult your doctor before adding Turmeric to your diet as it can be a uterine stimulant. Also, Turmeric should not be used by people with gallstones or bile obstruction.

  1. Low-carb/low calorie diets work for some but are not without problems. Even with people who tend to be able to lose weight on a higher carbohydrate intake, this type of diet is more difficult to follow because you are hungry almost all of the time. A moderate fat, lower carb diet, however, has additional health benefits, and is both more effective and easier to follow for most people .
