I know this kind of post isn't for everyone.  

But for those who are interested in tweaking their diets and haven't yet heard about the potential beneifts of curcumin, here's s 35 minute presentation (technical at times), by Dr Aggarwal of UT MD Anderson Cancer Center.  He's been a researcher there for some time.

The essense of hs talk is that curcumin, along with a number of other plant derived substances, some of which he touches on, inhibits pathways which promote out of control inflammation which can aggravate cancer and other disease states.

I was taking Curminin when I went in remission almost 4 years ago, then stopped.  Which I hadn't, I am back on it, along with some other supplements.  Thanks for sharing...
