Modifying Gene Function With the Use of Curcumin to Combat Against Cancer

July 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 205

Researchers from the MD Anderson Cancer Center in University of Texas are currently on the verge of discovering a breakthrough that might as well be the answer to the demands of finding the absolute cancer cure.Last April 2011, the center published an outstanding scientific review of an anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer nutrient, curcumin.

The study concluded that curcumin; along with a number of other nutrients including green tea, tocotrienols, quercetin and resveratrol seem to have their own intelligence as the nutrients can actually differentiate a healthy cell from a cancer cell.What's so fascinating about this is that curcumin has the ability to unleash a groundbreaking response with the sole purpose of killing cancer.Curcumin enhances the survival of healthy cells while at the same time increasing its ability to tolerate stress.

The problem for shooting gene-related shotgun inside the human body is that it instantaneously blast away NF-kappaB, which is actually the core gene signal for both healthy and cancer cells.Pulling a shotgun that will kill the brain of the cells will damage both cancer and healthy cells, without differentiating one from the other.Thus, nutrients have been studied for many years to reveal it true genetic power with an end result of improving health.

When you think about cancer, the primary issue here is always how to stop it from spreading when it had already started to manifest and how to prevent it in the first place.What happens during cancer is that the DNA is hijacked and regulation of the cancer process begins.Toxins along with other risk factors including infections, pollution, stress, inflammation and free radicals all work to damage the DNA.In the long run, these factors cause cancer and mutation, scientifically known as adverse epigenetic influences.If the damage is greater than the repair, genetic malfunctions occur and then cancer sets in.

During the research, curcumin has shown ways to alter epigenetic mechanisms wherein the nutrient single-handedly increases the sensitivity of cancer cells to conventional agents.Curcumin was suggested as one of the most promising and powerful anti-cancer agent as it was shown that there is a lower incidence of cancer with people who include this spice in their everyday diet.

Researchers were able to conclude that curcumin helps kill cancer by changing DNA regulation.It was even observed that there is a process which helps healthy cells survive better.The process however is yet to be discovered in future studies.

Puneet Aggarwal is a well-known herbalist that had been promoting Ayurvedic remedies for alternative health cures. He recommends using Turmeric and its derivative, Curcumin as an effective relief from many medical conditions.
