Re: Curcumin

I take about1 tbsp of turmeric daily, mixed with 1/4 cup orgnic tomato sauce, 1/8 tsp pepper (supposed to help the body absorb the turmeric) and 1tsp pureed garlic, all mixed into a paste. My oncologist and several books I've read encourage "food as medicine", saying that not enough is known re the components of a food, and whether all of these components survive the manufacture of a supplement. Regardless of what you believe, there is a lot of evidence at the lab level, of the effectiveness of turmeric in fighting cancer. I don't know of any human studies, which of course will be the "last word" on the topic. But for now, I am taking my turmeric!
Check the following website for tons of scientific studies, on turmeric, green tea, etc.'
