You may have heard that curcumin (from the spice turmeric) has various health benefits. Given that it is cancer awareness month (aren’t we aware?), I wanted to examine claims how it helps fight cancer. A renowned cancer researcher was a great resource. Among his impressive titles, Ajay Goel, Ph.D. is the Director of the Center for Gastrointestinal Research associated with Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, TX. The type of curcumin he mentioned: BCM-95.
My second guest was holistic dentist, Philip R. Kozlow, DDS. Since radiation is a known cause of cancer, asked Dr. Kozlow about safe practices related to dental x-rays. Also, exposure to heavy metals like mercury is linked to cancer, so we touched on the types of materials dentists use to restore teeth. Association of holistic dentists: IAOMT
