My best friend, who is Indian, has been telling me about the benefits of turmeric on health and memory for years. Guess he was right.

Wilgar: Link seems to be Farked. Details?


The link is to the crappy site "BreakThrough Digest Medical News" that doesn't even link the editorial/review Tumeric-Derived Compound Curcumin May Treat Alzheimer's at Chemical and Engineering News that is is based on. Much more can be found at that source.

I made a huge pot of curry for dinner last night (and several servings to freeze) so I'm getting a kick out of this story.

I always have (and more so in recent years) f*cking loved a good curry.

The substance under investigation is curcumin which is a component of turmeric. Curcumin itself is orderless and tasteless but so brightly yellow colored that it is used as food dye for instance with popcorn to fool people into thinking it has been doused with butter.

Wow, maybe that will counteract the butter flavoring!

Apparently, I should have read this week's C&E News.

Isn't it funny that now we call senility Alzheimer's disease when, in the past, we used call it Oldtimer's?

If people can smell the contents of your veins, you probably have bigger, short-term, problems to deal with.

Also, a Google search for:

NIH curcumin

yields plenty of reading.

I love curry, but my family won't eat it. Fortunately, they will eat turmeric rice. They like it with black beans.

All four of my grandparents died after succumbing to alzheimers. At the end, their minds were completely gone - not a one could even recognize his own wife or kids. If somebody's found a cure to that, I'd be willing to mainline it into my dick.

Well, not right now. But by the time I'm 65 and not using it much anymore - gimme a needle and a bullet to bite on.

This is one of those awkward fark moments where I want to click the funny button, but can't due to to the sad part.
