Betterhumans cites a study that found curcumin (turmeric, the spice that makes curry yellow) inhibits the accumulation of destructive beta-amyloid plaques and breaks up existing plaques in genetically altered mice.
Perhaps this helps explain the possible very low incidence of alzheimer’s in India. Much more study needed.
For years I have eaten lots of turmeric, which may be added to just about any food. Yum. I doubt my father’s mother has eaten any apart from tiny amounts used in food coloring. Unfortunately she’s far past being helped by any crude dietary intervention. Happy holidays to the husk of Victoria Ulakey.
