And

 

Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) inhibits cell proliferation, induces apoptosis, and decreases hormone levels and secretion in pituitary tumor cells.

After eating curry in my eggs and tuna every chance I get I've noticed a difference in certain things. I know that there is evidence to suggest curcumin is anti carcinogenic and anti inflammatory and I attribute the changes to the anti inflammatory effect. But I still got curious....so I decided to look up turmeric/curcumin and pituitary tumors and this is what I found. Just thought it was interesting.

Oh, interesting...about 2 years ago I started using Tumeric daily to try to make head way with my Hidradenitis Suppurativa.  I noticed a very small improvement in new outbreaks, but I didn't like the taste it left and I didn't think it made that much difference... But now I wonder...  I have long since decided the boil problem is a Cushing's symptom ...I think I can realistically put the start of Cushing's around the time it started.  Well, maybe it just gave me more time to not know what was coming!

I've been growing tumeric. It grows like ginger. You can take it in supplement form, too. I'm not a big fan of eating curry often, but will take supplements. however, I'm not now for the same reason, door. I want accurate testing. Tumeric really is proving to be a superfood. Love more research is being done on such things.
