Turmeric Side Effects
There may indeed be disastrous turmeric side effects that the Indians have yet to discover in their 5000 year old history as a civilization. Hell, you can never be too careful. Plus there is always the off chance you are allergic to turmeric and wow what a side effect that would be! For one thing, you would be right to all the naysayers who encouraged you to try the vegetable Korma. It actually did kill you and imagine their horrified expressions as you collapse foaming out your mouth and anus. But generally speaking, there are few, if any side effects to turmeric.
- Maybe puke. Perhaps most turmeric side effects are cultural. The fact you want to puke after eating curry could have nothing to do with turmeric. It could have to do with you and a lifetime of pizza, microwaved burritos and cheeseburgers. But some people claim a side effect is nausea. Maybe it wasn't that that awful show 'Glee' that made you nauseous. Maybe it was the turmeric.
- Maybe baby. Another side effect Westerners toss out there against the swarthy and foreign smelling turmeric is it might make nursing mothers have problems feeding their infants. Could be. What goes into Mom will go into the milk. Maybe Mom should eat hot dogs instead. On the opposite side of the coin are cultures that enjoy curry and even spicy curry. Do you think they give up their Aloo Palak for a Nacho Bell Grande?
- Maybe gallstones. This one turmeric side effect is so wishy washy it barely deserves a mention. Are you ready? There has been a theory put forth by the scientific community that maybe using turmeric as a supplement could lower your chances of getting gallstones. Well, that is unless you are a candidate for gallstones. Then maybe, you could get more...and maybe if you eat Vindaloo curry you will get hit by a bus. Then again, maybe you won't.
