      Ask your doctor about letrizole. It may be a better alternative. Continue taking curcumin

      Take Tumeric/ Curcumin daily as an anti-inflammatory supplement, ok by Doctor, mix with honey, apple cider vinegar, lemon rinds and black pepper for proper absorption, one tablespoon every morning.

      There are other medications to prevent recurrence of hormone receptor positive breast cancer. As others have said, turmeric is not an alternative that provides the same or similar treatment. I take Meriva which is an easily absorbed curcumin in addition to exemestane which is the AI I take instead of Tamoxifen. I take Meriva for anti-inflammatory properties.

      The title of the study I am writing about is: breast cancer, study CS 1644. I complained to "Michael" about it, but I have not received a reply.

      lynn1950, I agree 1000%%%. I do not mind sharing when I know it is just for the good of the cancer community. When a company is enriching itself off of my answers, and doing it under the guise of screening for a survey, I get upset.

      Greg, when they know they are looking for a certain demographic, they need to screen us out or in on that criteria from the get-go. It makes NO sense to collect a ton of other information (often taking 15 or 20 minutes to give) if we aren't eligible because of our demographics.

      Otherwise, your argument makes sense that some people will lie to get the $$ survey dollars.
