Reducing Breast Cancer Risk When on HRT...

If you're on estrogen and progestin hormone replacement therapy (HRT), there's good news about reducing your chance of contracting progestin-driven breast cancer. And that good news comes in the form of a spice.

Turmeric, that yellow Indian spice that's found in curry, has an active ingredient called curcumin, which has been shown in animal studies to delay the incidence and appearance of tumors.

NOTE: Estrogen in combination with progestin appears to be the culprit; estrogen alone does not point to an increase in the disease.

The Study and Its Findings

Dr. Salman Hyder, professor of biomedical sciences at the University of Missouri’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Dalton Cardiovascular Research Center, conducted the study, which is important for women who are on progestin and estrogen HRT.

Approximately 6 million post-menopausal women are on HRT and according to Dr. Hyder, curcumin offers them some protection against this dreaded disease. Dr. Hyder adds, "The results of our study show that women could potentially take curcumin to protect themselves from developing progestin-accelerated tumors."

The study was published in the Journal, Menopause.

Madam Aphrodite™ Speaks...

Curcumin is an amazing compound with amazing properties. When a relative of mine was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the Mayo Clinic prescribed curcumin to go along with her traditional treatment. It extended her life significantly.

Do your research and read about the benefits curcumin offers us. I think it is the new wonder compound of our age, right up there with Vitamin D. Researchers know, for example, that people in India who regularly consume curry, heavily flavored with turmeric, have a very low incidence of Alzheimer's disease. They speculate that the curcumin, found in the turmeric, protests their brains.

And now there's another reason to make it a part of your daily diet or supplement protocol.
