Question? I had read somewhere that Curcumin can increase the side effects of the medication you take. Is this the case with people who are taking it along with there CML medication?

I haven't heard of it increasing side effects.  If you do a search on the MD Anderson website, you'll see a bunch of stuff relating to curcumin.  Apparently it can stop the spread of breast cancer and slows down pancreatic cancer.  At least that's what I read.  And I don't know what the statistics are or how many people were included in their studies.  They've got an interesting slide show on "healing spices".

Hopefully Michael will weigh in soon, I believe he is taking it along with the most miniscule of TKI doses as he has a wickedly sensitive system.  You should do a search on the site here for curcumin, there were huge discussions of it when he first started.
