By Jacqueline Stenson

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - The substance that gives the spice turmeric its yellow color may help fight cancer, preliminary evidence suggests.

Researchers have found in the lab that the active ingredient in turmeric, called curcumin, can enhance the cancer-fighting power of treatment with TRAIL, a naturally occurring molecule that helps kill cancer cells. TRAIL stands for tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Final proof that dietary components like green tea, curry spice or wine can fight cancer in humans and not just laboratory test tubes remains elusive, but researchers are full of hope for the unconventional treatments.

The Only 'Solution' is Victory

by Daniel Pipes

If Israel is to protect itself, it must achieve a comprehensive military victory over the Palestinians, so that the latter give up their goal of obliterating it.

April 2, 2002 -- At this time of war between Israel and the Palestinians, half-baked suggestions for a speedy resolution are whizzing by almost as fast as bullets.

Let's review some of the more prominent schemes.


Media Critique #16 - Sympathy for a Terrorist

by Staff

When a Palestinian murders 8 Israelis, the world media downplays the event -- or ignores it altogether.

When Palestinians celebrate terror attacks, the media is strong-armed into suppressing its coverage. Here's why.

It's been a tough year for Israel in the media. A slew of accusations were leveled against the Jewish state: "excessive force," "escalation," and "indiscriminate killings." It almost seems as if media coverage of the conflict was inherently skewed.

In many cases it is.
