This is some interesting work discussed by our NATIONAL CAM headquarters at NIH. This is information that you can use now. Just use Google and search on Curcumin and be amazed at what you did not know about its use in many illnesses, There are almost unlimited benefits seen with Curcumin, which are extensively documented in literature, including its use in cancer.
Longevity Plus includes this amazing Turmeric based herbal product in both Beyond Bone Defense and in Heavy Detox. This way I get my Curcumin every day, as I take both of those supplements.
Flaxseed is useful but research supports Omega- 3, as the better way to go, so everyone in my book must be on a good Omega 3 product everyday of life, as found in Beyond Chelation-Improved.
”Recent work extends to the use of dietary antioxidant agents such as curcumin, flaxseed, or phenolic compounds in ameliorating acute and chronic oxidative lung disease.”

“The Use of Curcumin and Flaxseed in Radiation Pneumonopathy”
Dr. Melpo Christofidou-Solomidou,
University of Pennsylvania, Department of Medicine, Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Division Dr. Melpo Christofidou-Solomidou earned a Ph.D. in Cell Biology from Rhenish Friedrich Wilhelm’s University, Bonn, Germany. She completed her post-doctoral research fellowship at Albany Medical College, Albany, New York and University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia.
The research focus of Dr. Christofidou-Solomidou involves the “Investigation of Novel Antioxidant Approaches to Acute and Chronic Lung Disease” with a special interest in pulmonary inflammation, lung fibrosis, and cell adhesion molecule regulation/expression. Projects involve the development of oxidant-induced acute and chronic lung injury animal models for the study of diseases such as ARDS, sepsis, radiation induced pneumonitis/fibrosis, and oxygen toxicity. Specific projects focus on the development of antioxidant methodologies such as immune conjugates for the targeting of anti-oxidant enzymes such as Catalase and Superoxide Dismutase to the pulmonary endothelium using antibodies to endothelial antigens. Recent work extends to the use of dietary antioxidant agents such as curcumin, flaxseed, or phenolic compounds in ameliorating acute and chronic oxidative lung disease.
