Black Cumin – A herb, a medicine for cancer treatment?

Cancer is one such condition wherein, additional adjuvants are always preferred in combination with the medical treatment in order to obtain the best possible result and to improve the quality of life of an individual at a short span of time interval. Researches and medical sciences have come a long way in treating cancer via inventing new technologies, administering new drugs, reducing the side effects and also keeping the treatments as painless as possible. As these have not yet gained complete confidence of the general public to eradicate cancer from one’s life, people are leaning towards the comfortable use of some natural herbs and ingredients along with the ongoing medications. One such ingredients are small, black colored, house hold spice – Black Cumin. Even-though it is named cumin, it has no relevance what so ever with the cumin (Jeerige or Jeera) used in our dishes.
