Topic: Saffron Takes on Cancer?

Hi folks,

I just wanted to share some information that my youngest brother (the MIT grad/researcher) shared with me yesterday:

"We also saw a good article about saffron (the spice that is used in lots or Spanish and mediterrean cooking): … _on_cancer

Six out of eight rats on the placebo got liver cancer from liver cancer causing drugs, while only 4 out of 24 on saffron got cancer.

Here is another articles that talks about it.  Sounds like another natural tool along with turmeric. … ffron.html

More to follow..."

I will be looking for more information on this...and will share, once I have it...

Best always,


Re: Saffron Takes on Cancer?

I did agree with Dr.Ralph on the following statement.

"He's convinced that in our increasingly technologically driven world that it's easy to overlook the low-tech solutions that are so readily available. While no one would deny the benefits that technology has brought to medicine, it is also extremely important to investigate inexpensive, naturally occurring substances that might be harvested and used for health."
And i think  this is not only apply to Saffron but also to other herbs as well. it is not surprising that ,according to one oral session  about CAM at DDW 2011 I attended ,indicated that higher education is related to more CAM users.
God bless.
