6-Educational update

I was just flicking through other people's blogs on this site, just to see if mine was marginally less dull than the rest, and came across this article by 'Healing food', a 'healthcare specialist' working in the US. To quote:

"People at India have low rate of Alzheimers disease. Since curries are a dietary staple there, it is natural for researchers to study the medical effect of curry on humans mental health. It turned out that curry contains a spice called curcumin, which gives curry its yellow color, can curb mental decline and even slow the effects of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimers disease.

Firstly, people found curcumin may activate a key enzyme that protects the brain against natural cellular oxidation. Cellular oxidation causes inflammation, which causes cell death, then disease, and then neurodegeneration. Secondly, Doctors at UCLA’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center have found that curcumin has one additional property not shared by most spices. It directly inhibits the production of amyloid plaques, the sticky substances that directly causes Alzheimer’s disease. Curcumin, in fact, seems to cut the number of amyloid plaques in half.

I heard India food has been the most popular international food in UK for the last 2-3 years. In my hometown, I see several India restaurants opened in the last 2 years as well. A healthy trend!"


Better listen to the expert then. Curry it is for breakfast, lunch and dinner. That'll ward off the heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, diabetes and chilli-induced oral cancer.
