According to doctors, there is a “superfood” that can kill cancer cells. Due to its high concentration of antioxidants, they consider turmeric as an alternative treatment for cancer. Experts called the spice a “cancer killer.” Scientists also noticed that in countries that actively use this spice, the number of people with cancer is much lower.
Turmeric is also good for the eyes by reducing the risk of cataracts. It reduces the risk of glaucoma and macular degeneration. Turmeric is used as a cholesterol-lowering agent.
