The reason Turmeric is recommended to prevent breast cancer (and it was proven in a medical study!) is that it lowers estrogen! Raised estrogen (from HRT or “the pill”) puts a woman at risk for breast cancer! My friend told me turmeric “contains estrogen” but from all the research I can see, maybe my friend had the research mixed up. Turmeric is an anti-estrogen spice! This is good news for men who may need a testosterone boost if sexually harmed by psych drugs.
If women have raised estrogen, they, too, can notice lowered libido. If estrogen is too low, bone thinning can occur, but I highly doubt turmeric on its own can cause bone thinning. Does anyone know?
