Although, the chemical has yet to be tested for its ability to kill cancer cells, the anti inflammatory and anti oxidant properties of curcumin have well established its ability to treat arthritis, dementia and certain other forms of cancer.
Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide after lung and breast cancer. It is also one of the worst forms of cancer, which in case of metastasis becomes extremely difficult to treat.

In light of this, “the prospect that curcumin might increase the sensitivity of cancer cells to chemotherapy is exciting”.
