Curcumin prevents heart attack because it prevents building up of plaque that can clog arteries. One study showed that 121 patients who had coronary artery bypass surgery who had either 4 grams of curcumin a day or placebo pills had interesting results.
People who had curcumin had a 65% lower risk of having a heart attack.
Curcumin also has some cancer-fighting abilities since it can kill all tumor cells.

Chronic inflammations can be a big problem among a lot of people. So, since curcumin acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, you can use it regularly to fight all the inflammations.
