It has been long been debated that ayurveda and natural diet cure all illness. This has once again been proved by scientists that the nanoparticles contained in Indian curry has cancer fighting ability. Specifically the particles contained curcumin, which comes from turmeric plants and is commonly used in several Indian dishes.

Turmeric which holds a religious place in Indian culture and is supposed to be good for skin as well. According to the  University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Austria this curcumin has ability prevent cancer. This was announced in a Journal on Nanobiotechnology on 6th of December 2013.
Curcumin works as a antioxidant and anti inflammatory natural product, it was used in the olden days to heal wounds, according to another research Curcumin absorbs tumor cells and prevents its growth finally killing the defective cells.
Though the major issue is to get the Curcumin into the cancerous cells. Since Curcumin does not dissolve in water hence the body cells cannot absorb the compound on their own. So do not think that eating lots of Turmeric (Haldi) will cure your cancer. The researchers however found an easy way to get the Curcumin inside human body, they packed the Curcumin into small fat blobs called emulsomes.

These emulsomes are full of fat and surrounded by lipid layer which is absorbed by cells without much resistance allowing the Curcumin to reach the right cells. Apart from this the slow and gradual release of curcumin ensures that the cancer cells have more time to absorb hence all the cancer cells are eradicated.
These blobs were called “CurcuEmulsomes” and were tested in the lab on cancer cells. To much surprise the experiments were successful and the infected cells absorbed CurcuEmulsomes.
In the mean time researchers are finding ways create such drugs which are not dissolved in water and not absorbed by other cells. This research will be a great benefit to human race. Currently cancer is one of the most dangerous diseases known to man.

Some of the most commonly known types of cancers include breast cancer, which turns fatal if not cured during the early stages. The biggest problem about cancer is that its source and cause remains unknown to scientists.
The problem is high when you are overweighted specially after the post menopause age. Hence a healthy life style and food as directed by your physician ensures good health.
