Fight Colon Cancer
Thursday. 2.1.07 7:58 am
My grandfather died from colon cancer about 2 years ago. My grandmother is still so heart broken. I think if she could just die of a broken heart, she would.

I read about a recent study whereas Curry and Onions may help to reduce the size of pollps in the colon therefore reducing the risk of colon cancer. Because my grandfather died from this cancer, it now puts me at risk..

Curry and Onions may Help Fight Colon Polyps

For people concerned about colon health, a spicier diet just may be in order. According to research conducted at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, antioxidants found in curry spices and onions can help shrink colon polyps and prevent them from becoming cancerous tumors. Hopkins researchers studied a group of patients, identified as being at high-risk of colon cancer, over the course of a six-month period. At the study's end, those patients who had consumed higher amounts of the compounds curcumin and quercetin – found in abundance in curry and onions – experienced an average reduction of 60% in the number of colon polyps. Researchers called for larger-scale studies of curcumin and quercetin.

Broccoli, Tomatoes Slow Prostate Cancer
HEALTH NEWS BYTE



Tuesday, February 13, 2007
A little more lush green and bright red on your dinner plate may make all the difference in the world when it comes to prostate health. According to a new University of Illinois study, eating tomatoes together with broccoli can slow the growth of existing prostate tumors, as well as cut the risk of being diagnosed with prostate cancer. Researchers found that men who followed a diet including 1.5 cups of broccoli and 2.5 cups of tomatoes, at least three days a week, experienced a 30% lower risk of prostate cancer than men who ate less of the two antioxidant-rich foods. A supplementary study of lab mice found that compounds in broccoli and tomatoes can significantly slow the growth of prostate tumor cells.






What This Means for You
While consuming tomatoes or broccoli alone has been shown to cut cancer risk, the current study highlighted the synergy of the two whole foods in combination.
