Considering that the conventional treatment of advanced stage pancreatic cancer can result in as little as a 1% 5-year survival rate, new preclinical research on a liposomal turmeric extract that inhibits pancreatic tumor growth by 42% is all the more promising.
Turmeric is one the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today. Its medicinal properties and components (primarily curcumin) have been the subject of over 5600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies.
In this groundbreaking study, an enzyme extracted from pineapple known as bromelain was found superior to the chemo-drug 5-fluorouracil at treating cancer in the animal model. 5-fluorouracil is so toxic, that a dose weighing the equivalent of 3 pennies (7.5 grams) will kill 50% of humans given it. On the other hand, you would have to consume the equivalent of 1.5 lbs of bromelain to have a similar effect - which is practically impossible.
