(NaturalNews) A statistical analysis of millions of scientific studies reveals that curcumin -- one of the active chemical constituents in turmeric -- is the most widely-studied phytochemical in modern science. The analysis was conducted by medical science researcher Mike Adams, editor of NaturalNews.com.
Based on a statistical analysis of over three million published scientific studies, curcumin is the most frequently mentioned phytonutrient, followed by resveratrol (found in red grapes and watermelon), flavonoids (a class of phytochemicals), quercetin (found in onions) and genistein, commonly found in soy.
The analysis is presented as part of the newly-launched SCIENCE.naturalnews.com website, developed by Mike Adams, the "Health Ranger," the creator of the mathematical algorithms used to conduct research. "This technology is able to find hidden statistical signals across the entire universe of known scientific studies," Adams explained. "We are already uncovering a wealth of data about relationships among food ingredients, chronic diseases, prescription medications, heavy metals and health effects. All these relationships are mathematically derived using signal-detection algorithms specifically engineered to traverse a large body of scientific literature."
SCIENCE.naturalnews.com is a free website that allows users to quickly and easily explore millions of scientific studies on nutrition, toxic chemicals, prescription medications, vitamins, minerals, medicinal herbs and more.
Just launched yesterday, SCIENCE.naturalnews.com has already hosted over 100,000 visitors. Part of the appeal of the site is that it uncovers and documents hidden trends in scientific research such as the fact that curcumin (found in turmeric) is the No. 1 phytonutrient that appears across the scientific literature.
But the website goes even further, calculating statistical relationships with the top diseases and health conditions that are most closely related to each nutrient, chemical, food or drug.
Curcumin is frequently studied for its effects on cervical cancer, colon cancer and COPD
The top three health conditions most frequently studied in relation to curcumin are cancer, ovarian cancer and pituitary-related conditions.
Several micronutrients present in fruits and vegetables exhibit anticancer activity as a result of their actions on molecular targets involved in carcinogenesis and Tumor progression. Curcumin, a phenolic phytochemical derived from the rhizome of Curcuma longa, exhibits both cancer-preventative activity and growth inhibitory effects on neoplastic cells.
It is especially fascinating to realize that the FDA currently considers all these scientific statements to be a violation of federal law, worthy of getting yourself raided, arrested and thrown in jail for merely stating the scientific truth. No manufacturer or reseller of turmeric is currently allowed to repeat the conclusions found in the scientific literature without being threatened with arrest by the FDA, an agency engaged in such rogue police state tactics that it makes the IRS look tame.
This is all part of the FDA's "war on knowledge" that SCIENCE.naturalnews.com is working to counter by making scientific knowledge easy to access for the layperson.
