      A chemical found in curry is to be tested for its ability to kill bowel cancer tumours in patients.
      Curcumin, which is found in the spice turmeric, has been linked to a range of health benefits.
      Studies have already shown that it can beat cancer cells grown in a laboratory and benefits have been suggested in stroke and dementia patients as well.
      Now a trial at hospitals in Leicester will investigating giving curcumin alongside chemotherapy drugs.
      About 40,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer in the UK each year.

      Wow! Who would have thought something like that could help fight such things. It's amazing what they find and if it works then it's all the more better.
