The East Indians Secret To Lower Cancer Rates: A Remedy With Only 3 Ingredients!
Modern medicine has not always been available, that’s why it’s modern. This is how we “stay healthy.” So, what kept people healthy and thriving decades and centuries ago? Natural remedies and food! When you think about our current diets, boxed and frozen pre-prepared foods, what is healthy about that? What natural herbs and spices do we incorporate into our cooking today? Not many because we are not cooking at home like we used to! If we cooked at home more often would we have a lesser need for modern medicine? When we look at the cooking practices of cultures like the East Indians the answer seems to be yes!
The cancer rates in East India are very low. This could be correlated to their healthful diets full of natural herbs and spices. Studies are beginning to look at the cooking practices and the foods and spices in other cultures around the world that have low cancer rates, and East India is one of them.
One study shows that diet is an important factor in cancer etiology and prevention in India. As a society, Indians have one of the most interesting diets, with many unique dietary constituents that have promised for cancer prevention. Is this because of proper diet? Is there a link to Eastern Indian’s longevity and the types of foods and spices they eat? The incidence of cancer does appear to be significantly lower in regions where turmeric is heavily consumed. Population-based data indicate that some extremely common cancers in the Western world are much less prevalent in regions where turmeric is widely consumed in the diet. This includes East India.

Incorporating turmeric into your daily diet could help you if you are experiencing these problems or are looking to prevent them from occurring. A great way to prepare and consume turmeric into your daily meals is to use this simple recipe:
Blend a ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder with a half a teaspoon of olive oil and a pinch of black pepper to create a great dressing for a salad, to pour over a small serving of rice or pasta, or to drizzle on your veggies as a snack. This will give your body just the right daily serving size to fight off many of the conditions mentioned above. Carolyn Anderson, M.D. states on her website that it’s highly important to blend those specific ingredients because studies show that turmeric taken by its self is poorly absorbed in the intestine. Blending it with the pepper and olive oil improve its anti-inflammatory properties and absorption allowing your body to reap the full benefits.
