(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.

Each of these scientific research relationships is further detailed on SCIENCE.naturalnews.com in "pair matching" list pages. For example, see research on curcumin and cancer at:

Or curcumin and ovarian cancer:

Some of the studies on SCIENCE.naturalnews.com show, by the way, that curcumin causes colon cancer cells to self-destruct.

For example, a study entitled, Curcumin induces apoptosis in HCT 116 human colon cancer cells in a p21 independent manner concludes:

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.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
