The secret is out

Could Turmeric be The Magic in your Pantry
I stumbled on turmeric on a number of occasions while trying to find foods beneficial to a family member suffering from cancer. Turmeric cropped up so many times it seemed a must to include it even in my diet. Naturally it was a bonus to already have some in in the pantry.
I was so amazed with all I read on Turmeric that I now keep some on hand in a shaker so I can sprinkle it on food and I find it to be a healthy alternative to salt. I believe It even works better and is more effective when added to food with black pepper and is quite tasty sprinkled on eggs

Warnings. When to avoid.
I recommend you research this yourself first just to make sure you don’t have a health condition that may be made worse by consuming Turmeric and or check with your doctor if your not sure.
Some medications may not mix well ,
As with anything there is a down side and there are reasons not to have Turmeric. I have looked online and found Pregnancy is one such condition to avoid Turmeric. . Bleeding Disorders and Anemia may be made worse. Too much concentrated Turmeric as you find in supplements is not good either.
