This is one of the benefits of having a spice program.

I designed a system still in use today to standardize and correlate data across Phase III clinical trials back in '99.  They were testing with  Thalidomide at least that far back.

I might still have an appetite for that kind of development work if they were using curry, too.

Chemotherapy usually makes people sterile, so thalidomide wouldn't be a big concern after that anyway.

Also, concerning turmeric, old news is old.

Also good for reducing inflammation and possibly preventing Alzheimers by preventing amyloida from accumulating

I drink it as a 'tea'. Cup almond malk, 1/2 teaspoon tumeric, 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger, bit of cayenne or black pepper, and a little sweetener. Heat on low.

Turmeric is good but it turns everything piss yellow and makes my kitchen smell like a diaper filled with Indian food.

Thalidomide is not an anti-nausea drug.  It's an immunomodulating drug that has been used for multiple myeloma for some number of years now.  Hell, it now has newly developed 'sons', lenalidomide and pomalidomide.  It works quite well.  Celgene charges too much for it of course.

Before thalidomide (and Velcade and autologous stem cell transplant), myeloma patients didn't last nearly as long as 5 years.

You'd better. Per-pound, chemo is less expensive than saffron.

I started taking curcumin a few weeks ago after reading about it being better than prozac. It does work as antidepressant but it gave me MAJOR brain fog, had to stop taking it.  I guess if I come down with cancer brainfog would be the least of my worries ;)

This is a molecule made of parts of the two substances, which is a unique chemical. This news is as new as it comes.

You certainly won't find that on the spice isle.

If you do, I know a nice group of people living on a small volcanic island.  Incidentally, they love orange drink so I hope you do, too.

/Or is it brain "cloud" and not "fog" that's the bad one...either way...

Would you sooner ...

1) have cancer?
2) have no arms?


When I was an undergrad, a girl I knew who was a Thalidomide baby sang at the Winter Carnival show in Convocation hall. To a large room full of drunken college students.

There was some heckling when she walked on stage, but when she began to sing "Solitaire" the whole hall went quiet. You could have heard a pin drop, as they say. She shut up a hall full of frat boys. Room is still dusty to this day.
