christy answered question Can turmeric help to manage pain?

It may help to manage pain. Some studies have found that the chemical curcumin that exists in tumeric may help to lower swelling (inflammation). Therefore, it may be helpful in treating conditions that can cause inflammation, such as arthritis. Studies have found that in some cases, tumeric can help to reduce pain and improve function in people who have osteoarthritis. It has also been linked to the reduction in total cholesterol and tryglicerides in peopel who are overweight and who have high cholesterol. 

So, yes, tumeric does have the potential to help manage chroinic pain related inflammation. That said, if you are suffering from chronic pain, I would recommend that you first talk to your doctor about your different pain management options before you simply start taking tumeric supplements (if this is your plan). It's always a good idea to get the opinion of a healthcare provider regarding the treatment of any condition you might have (or think you might have).

tracy1976 answered question How can losing weight reduce your risk of getting cancer?

Studies have shown that excess weight, especially obesity, can increase the risk of certain types of cancers. In fact one study noted that being obeses can increase the risk of 13 types of cancers while another said that the longer you are obese, the more the risk grows..This is a pretty scary thought to say the least.

Losing weight can help to reduce your risk because typically it means that you are adopting a more healthy lifestyle, such as eatiing a healthier diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and antioxidants. Foods that are high in trans fats, sugar and salt increses the number of free radicals in your body which can be bad for you. You're also likely exercising more which means you're improving your circulation, burning off unwanted fat and youre likely getting better rest. Sleep is really important to your health as well. Just like when you quit smoking, as soon as you start to lose weight and live healthier the sooner you start lowering your risk.
