According to Dr. Keith Block’s authoritative book on integrative cancer treatment, Life Over Cancer, (from my experience probably the best book available to laymen looking for science based nutrition and lifestyle strategies to help manage advanced and late-stage cancers) chronic inflammation is one of the six biochemical conditions in the body that can promote cancer establishment, growth and spread.
I’ve posted videos in the past about the anti-inflammatory effects of tumeric (or more accurately, the curcumin in tumeric). It’s one of the most effective anti-inflammatory herbs on the planet and has been used for centuries in recipes and medicines from India. (By the way, the addition of some ground black pepper has been shown through studies to dramatically increase the bio-availability of the anti-inflammatory nutrients in tumeric.)
But how much is too much of a good thing? In this video Dr. Greger puts that question to science to find an answer.
