Doctor Oz did a Cancer Prevention Clinic on the Dr Oz show, and I am sure that he will save another life or two by raising cancer awareness. Cancer is a life threatening disease that many people (including me!) fear the most. Dr Oz had three other doctors who beat cancer on his show: Dr Dara Richardson-Heron, a breast cancer survivor, Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, a skin cancer melanoma survivor, and Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, a brain cancer survivor.
Ovarian Cancer Prevention
A woman asked Dr Oz what she can do to help her daughter prevent getting ovarian cancer, since she had ovarian cancer herself. Dara Richardson-Heron said that we don’t yet understand Ovarian Cancer, but there is definitely a genetic predisposition to getting Ovarian Cancer. If you have a family history of Ovarian Cancer, you should think about doing a genetic test to see your risks. Also, while it has not been proven to cure Ovarian Cancer or to prevent Ovarian Cancer, turmeric (a yellow powder found in curry dishes) kills Ovarian cells, so it is worth trying!
