CPMC Leads Study on Link Between Turmeric and BPA Exposure
Researchers at Sutter Health affiliated California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute (CPMCRI) announced an exciting new research study which investigates the effects main ingredients of the spice turmeric have on bisphenol-A, or BPA, exposure.
Low doses of curcumin, a key ingredient in turmeric, was found to reverse many of the major changes caused by exposure to BPA. BPA exposure has long been linked as a potential risk factor for developing breast cancer and other developmental conditions, such as fetal abnormalities and possibly male cancers such as prostate cancer.
It’s said to be the first study of is kind offering promise that the effects of BPA can be reversed by main elements of the spice turmeric. Learn more on California Pacific Medical Center’s newsroom.
