Many South Indian women apply turmeric paste onto their face, neck and hands. They believe that it makes their skin beautiful. They look as if they have just stepped out from some yellow planet. Scientists are throwing light on the fact that turmeric has hidden health benefits which are waiting to be unearthed.


Turmeric, the highly favored Asian spice contains the anti-inflammatory molecule curcumin. It slows down mesothelioma- cancer of the lining of the lungs, which is linked to asbestos, a recent research study has found.

1. Curcumin inhibits spreading of tumor cells.
2. Prevents normal cells from turning into tumor cells
3. Helps in the destruction of mutated cancer cells
4. Prevents spreading of cancer cells
5. Decreases inflammation
6. Fights against additional blood supply necessary for cancer cell growth.
7. Fights against synthesis of protein which aids in tumor formation.

And scientists say that this compound could help to treat neurological disorders such as stroke and Alzheimer's disease
