5 Cancer-Fighting Spices

Garlic
No surprise here. The stinking rose is one of the most potent weapons in preventing cancer, particularly colon cancer. Containing the photochemical allicin, garlic stimulates the production of cancer-fighting enzymes. Daily garlic consumption can lower total cholesterol and triglyceride levels by 10 percent and has the added benefit of keeping vampires at bay.

Very interesting read! I would have never thought that one of these used topically would help with arthritis! There's only one I don't have, and that's turmeric. Will have to pick that up, and then use these spices more often. I use lots of cinnamon and garlic in different recipes already, but that's it. And thanks for providing recipes. That's a big help! And thanks to those who said you need to have pepper with turmeric for the turmeric to be absorbed in the body, and for pointing out that cooked garlic has lost most of its health benefit. I know I cook it to death. We've bought pickled garlic, and so I'm sure that's excellent for you, since it's raw, and you just pop it in your mouth like you would an olive. That will keep more than the vampires at bay!
