Dr Shrikanth Anant , professor of cancer research , University of Kansas explained how the search for alternative solutions to fight cancer was motivated by the need to avoid the serious side-effects of cancer therapy.

He has been involved in the research on curcumin, for which human trials are on, following the success of animal trials. According to information available in medical journals, nearly 62% of cancer patients in the US prefer to consume medicines made of natural compounds.

"Cancer is a complex disease. No therapy is a silver bullet. It has to be a combination. So, we're looking at options that can make treatment more effective," Anant said.
