For those into the technicalities..

Engrailed-2 (EN2): A Tumor Specific Urinary Biomarker for the Early Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer!

Whilst it's been spoken about previously, the study results have just been published..  Clearly there is greater hope that easier detection of PC will soon be available..  Too late for us, eh!


Curcumin—One of the BEST Supplements for Many Cancers Too!

If you want to use curcumin to prevent stroke I believe your best strategy is to use it as a food in the form of turmeric. However if you have a severe illness, like cancer, then it is best to use it as a drug at a much higher dose as described below.

Dr. William LaValley from Austin Texas is one of the top natural medicine cancer physicians I know and he recently shared this important information on curcumin, which has the most evidence based literature for use as a cancer support than any other nutrient.

Curcumin affects more than 100 different pathways once it gets into the cell. Interestingly this also includes the metabolite of curcumin and its derivatives, which are also anti-cancer. Best of all, curcumin appears to be safe in the treatment of all cancers.

In India where turmeric is widely used, the prevalence of four common U.S. cancers -- colon, breast, prostate and lung -- is 10 times lower. In fact, prostate cancer, which is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in U.S. men, is rare in India and this is attributed, in part, to the curcumin in turmeric.

Numerous studies have looked into this potential cancer-fighting link, with promising results. For instance, curcumin has been found to:

  • Inhibit the proliferation of tumor cells
  • Inhibit the transformation of cells from normal to tumor
  • Help your body destroy mutated cancer cells so they cannot spread throughout your body

Curcumin (Tumeric Root Extract) receives a high endorsement from Dr. Charles "Snuffy" Myers (along with Resveratrol, Pomegranate and Vitamin D3). Through its antioxidant mechanisms, and in addition to inhibiting the proliferation of tumor cells, Curcumin supports colon health, exerts neuopathic activity and helps maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.
I take two 665mg Vcaps of Curcumin daily which I buy online from Swanson Health Products - http://www.swansonvitamins.com/ - along with the aforementioned Resveratrol + Vitamin D3. I buy pomegranate pills from POMx Wonderful - www.pompills.com/index.aspx

Carefull - treading on thin ice here.
Some just don't believe in this VooDoo Mumbo-Jumbo of Anti-Oxidants etc.  They only understand radiation.
So we won't talk about the latest findings on VitD and Krill-Oil.
Ran into a friend whilst waiting for the bride, outside the MRI thumper. 
He said that they were looking for "Growths, caused by cancer-treatment radiation from 8 years ago"..   At least someone was honest with him !

For once I can't argue this supplement with you. Never thought I would say that, now did you?
But the reason is not what you expect. I discovered many years ago that I was allergic to Curcumin - and deathly so. Had it in a meal at a fine Indian restaurant - highly recommended, one time, wound up for days in intensive care, and have never set foot in an Indian restaurant since.
