Believe it or not, but everything you need to prevent or treat cancer is right inside your spice cabinet. More than just dried seeds, fruits, roots, barks or any other plant-based substances that add flavor to our foods, they also double as anti-cancer agents. More than 180 spice-derived compounds have been identified and scientifically explored for their health benefits. It is beyond the scope of a single article to deal with all herbs and spices that may influence the risk of cancer and tumor behavior, so we’ve highlighted 18 of the most powerful.
Defeating a disease often labelled ‘incurable’ through conventional treatment typically happens through dietary strategies. A selection of spices can avert the multiplying of malignant cells in the body that gradually mature into insurmountable cancer cells. Spices like turmeric and saffron are inherent with medicinal properties that, when incorporated to our diet from an early stage strengthens our bodies against invasion of toxins, bacteria and viruses.
A conscious effort has been made in the scientific community to provide information about the amount of spices needed to bring about a response and thus their physiological relevance. Although the health attributes associated with spice use may arise from their antioxidant properties, their biological effects may arise from their ability to induce changes in a number of cellular processes, including those involved with drug metabolism, cell division, apoptosis, differentiation, and immuno-competence.
