Regardless of opinions regarding the actual science surrounding turmeric, despite how misunderstood body systems are to this day, I wish we could all at minimum at least spell and pronounce it correctly.
It's TuRmeric, not tuMeric.
It has always been tuRmeric, and never tuMeric.
Yes, folks, that's two Rs, one before the 'M' sound, another before the 'ic' sound.
And there are lots and lots of scholarly studies out there on turmeric. That's not to say that those studies, like many others don't or can't hold bias, but turmeric doesn't have Big Agribi$ or other financial assets behind it, at least not as far as I know. I'm not providing any links, as the research is out there and you can find it on your own and judge accordingly.
Me? As I mentioned in another reply earlier, I'm looking for more ways to incorporate tuRmeric into my diet, but I also eat veggies and fish in similar proportions to meat, which other people here don't do, so to each their own.
I've said it before, I'll say it again: we're all different, so there isn't one magic bullet diet that will fit us all.
Maybe tuRmeric does harm some people, the same way milk products or gluten products ruin some of us, while it makes others thrive. If you study natural selection for long enough, the concept of some foods being good for some while bad for others doesn't seem so strange.
No magic bullets.
Perhaps we survive based on what works AND what is available. Perhaps we thrive when we're eating what is best for us individually, not whatever is handy.
Perhaps we would all do better at eating what is available seasonally, which is probably how our ancestors lived. And probably more effort than most of us are willing to think out much less live out, and since we're really not the same as our paleo ancestors, it may or may not matter.
