Turmeric and Cancer – The Known Inflammation Link

Date Posted:9 February 2017 

A century and a half ago, the German physician Rudolf Virchow, suggested that ‘severe irritation of body tissue’ is linked to cancer. Now his theory is being taken seriously, and we know that some cancers are certainly linked to long-term inflammation. Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory, and trials on turmeric and cancer are showing some very promising results. But until human trials prove that turmeric can either prevent or treat cancer, Western medicine will rely on radiation and chemotherapy. Even so, taking a turmeric supplement for inflammatory conditions is an option certainly worth considering. PFE Turmeric Plus Oral Liquid is a potent formula that may help to keep inflammation under control, while supporting your normal body systems.

So, we know now that inflammation plays a critical part in the development and progression of some cancers. Having an infection, chronic irritation or inflammation in some body organs will increase the risk of cancer developing in that organ. Even though many trials on turmeric and cancer show promise, we can’t claim that a turmeric supplement will stop or fight cancers. It’s one hundred and fifty years later, and the best science can offer is ‘maybe’! Scientific proof takes years of laboratory trials, then animal trials, and only then, trials on humans.

Fight that inflammation

In the meantime, the best we can do for ourselves is to reduce the possibility of inflammation becoming chronic. Those inflamed cells in your knee, your back, prostate, gut, or on your skin, could become chronic if not treated. That area of chronic inflammation could develop into a cancer. Of course, you need to have it checked by your health professional. While you are there, ask their opinion on taking PFE Turmeric Plus Oral Liquid Supplement to help fight the inflammation. You will find that most medical specialists will support the use of complementary supplements.

For those who have already developed cancers as a result of long-term inflammation, a turmeric supplement may still offer some relief. Some studies suggest that Turmeric may actually kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing. It seems to have had the best effects on breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancers. Many cancer organisations support the use of complementary therapies. If you are searching for information related to turmeric for cancer, Cancer Research UK has a very informative page.
