Instead of also respecting the traditional use of this root, Western medicine has made it into a drug and put it in a capsule. “Widespread contamination of curcumin products with a Class-1 residual solvent known as EDC (1,2-dichloroethane) is known. According to the Toxic Substances and Disease Registry of the Department of Health and Human Services, the potential health effects of exposure to the Class-1 solvent at levels above 5 ppm (parts-per-million) include: central nervous system disorders; adverse liver, kidney, and lung effects; and heart failure. Long term effects: probable carcinogen. The problem is so widespread, according to the researchers, curcumin extract with an EDC amount less than 5 ppm is not easily found.” This information comes from a pharmaceutical company making this drug with an alternative solvent. Turmeric is less expensive and more effective than “curcumin,” using the traditional methods of cooking it into a curry or making Golden Milk.
