Natural dietary antioxidants are extensively studied for their ability to protect cells from damage to DNA, protein, and lipids induced by antitumor agents or radiation that leads to the generation of free radical in normal cells in vivo and in vitro. Curcumin is a natural antioxidant known to possess therapeutic properties and has been reported to scavenge free radicals and to inhibit clastogenesis in mammalian cells. However, curcumin has been reported to induce a significant increase in the… CONTINUE READING
