Indian cooking has used turmeric for a very long time. It is a key part of curry powder and is often used to add flavour and colour to food. Turmeric has been used in complementary medicine for thousands of years, in addition to its uses in modern science.
According to Healthline, Researchers have looked into its possible health benefits, such as lowering inflammation, protecting cells from free radicals, and maybe even preventing cancer.
There is some evidence that the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric are good for breast health. Since inflammation is linked to breast cancer, treatments that lower this risk may protect against the disease.
Turmeric also possesses antioxidant qualities. Antioxidants get rid of free radicals and other chemicals that can damage cells and cause inflammation. Because of this, antioxidants may help prevent cancer in some way.
Turmeric is just one part of a healthy diet, so please keep that in mind. The best way to lower your risk of getting cancer is to eat a variety of foods that are high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. There is some evidence that eating foods with turmeric in them may make you less likely to get breast cancer.
