    Regarding the discussion in Turmeric, and how what makes it healthy is that it’s somewhat toxic, and therefore the body has to activate fighter genes to remove it.. any thoughts on FERMENTED turmeric tea (popular in Okinawa, Japan)? I know fermented foods often have beneficial qualities, but haven’t heard if that same is true for tea (Tumeric or Pu-erh).

    I recently ordered ‘Mate Factor’ tumeric tea from iHerb, and interestingly, at checkout it said “WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California [Prop 65] to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.”

    In order to place the order you have to click that you have read the warning. Any idea why Turmeric tea would get flagged?

    Also, in order to get the lesser known active ingredients in turmeric (ex. Aromatic/Ar-turmerone) , what are your thoughts on JUICING turmeric roots? For example the turmeric juice recipes from FoodBabe / BALINESE JAMU KUNYIT (the forum at bulletproof)?
