Stumbled across this article and wondered if anyone has heard of turmeric being beneficial as an adjunct to cisplatin?

We've been using it for about a year, figure it can't hurt.  If you like Indian food, it is a spice used in curry.

I do recall reading that you need to take a pinch of black pepper and some oil with it.  I tried it a couple times - trust me, it's intense. 

Still, I often say I'm going to start eating more foods with it.  I used to love chicken curry (homemade - argh! - now I've got a craving, and it takes a while to make, and I have no chicken, and no one at my house will eat it with me . . . . . )  Anyhoo - tasty stuff - serve it with peanuts, raisins, chopped boiled egg.
