A study on Curcumin and breast cancer was published in Cancer Research, Vol. 62, July 1, 2002, pp. 3868-75. This study found thatrepparttar use of Curcumin was as effective in preventingrepparttar 149846 spread of breast cancer as Taxol in laboratory mice. Inrepparttar 149847 study mice were induced with breast cancer thenrepparttar 149848 tumors were removed such as with a mastectomy in humans. Thenrepparttar 149849 mice were divided into 4 groups. One was a placebo group, one received Curcumin, one received Taxol, andrepparttar 149850 other Curcumin and Taxol. After 5 weeksrepparttar 149851 study showed that halfrepparttar 149852 mice inrepparttar 149853 Curcumin group hadrepparttar 149854 cancer spread torepparttar 149855 lungs. Only 22 percent of those inrepparttar 149856 Curcumin plus Taxol group had seenrepparttar 149857 cancer spread. 75 percent ofrepparttar 149858 Taxol only group sawrepparttar 149859 cancer spread. The placebo group saw 95 percent ofrepparttar 149860 mice hadrepparttar 149861 cancer spread torepparttar 149862 lungs. These were amazing results.

Human studies are just beginning. Butrepparttar 149863 early signs are thatrepparttar 149864 simple safe spice may offer a safe way of preventing cancer and may also be a great way of aiding inrepparttar 149865 treatment of Cancer.

Why not try some of these exercises yourself?

See Clearly Method ==================

The See Clearly Method is another popular series of exercises and training to help with vision correction. Similarly torepparttar 149826 Bates' method, you are required to do 30 minutes of eye exercises a day to strengthen and enhancerepparttar 149827 flexibility ofrepparttar 149828 eye's muscles. This would usually involve makingrepparttar 149829 eye change it's focus from near to far for example. One simple way of doing this would be to hold a small object in your hand and slowly move it away from your face, ensuring that your eye followsrepparttar 149830 object and retains focus upon it.

One exercise which is know as "tromboning" has you hold a small object again, starting at arm's length. Then you need to breath in and moverepparttar 149831 object slowly closer to your face, until it touches your nose. You are then required to breath out, looking atrepparttar 149832 object as you again move it away from your face. Hencerepparttar 149833 notion of "Tromboning".

The See Clearly Method also employs a number of techniques which are aimed at accelerating progress or improvement. For example, there is a technique referred to asrepparttar 149834 "blur reading" technique, which asks you to turn a magazine upside-down at a distance whererepparttar 149835 words are not distinct. Then, you are supposed to choose one word and focus your attention around it, to see if you can identify any ofrepparttar 149836 letters.

As withrepparttar 149837 Bates' Method,repparttar 149838 eye exercises suggested inrepparttar 149839 See Clearly Method are certainly worthy of a go to see if they help you at all.
