Tumeric and Alzheimer's
"A spicy ingredient of many curries may be an effective treatment for Alzheimer's disease, say researchers.
A team from the University of California at Los Angeles believes that turmeric may play a role in slowing down the progression of the neurodegenerative disease.
The finding may help to explain why rates of Alzheimer's are much lower among the elderly in India than in their Western peers.
Previous studies have found that Alzheimer's affects just 1% of people over the age of 65 living in some Indian villages."
