    Curry is good:That flat u lent Ruby ?

    EATING curry once or twice a week could stave off dementia, research suggests. Tests on fruit flies found that those given curcumin, the key chemical in turmeric, lived 75 per cent longer. The findings, published in the journal PLoS One, could help explain why rates of dementia are lower among the elderly in India than in their Western peers. Alzheimer’s is linked to the build-up of protein in the brain called amyloid plaques damaging the wiring.

    Curcumin did not dissolve the plaque, but accelerated the formation of nerve fibres by reducing the amount of their precursor forms, known as oligomers, from which they were formed. Prof Per Hammarstrom, of Linkoping University in Sweden, said: “The results confirm our belief that it is the oligomers that are most harmful to the nerve cells.” "

    We now see small molecules in an animal model can influence the amyloid form. To our knowledge the encapsulation of oligomers is a new and exciting treatment strategy." Several theories have been established about how oligomers can instigate the disease process. According to one hypothesis they become trapped at nerve junctions inhibiting impulse signals.

    Others claim they destroy brain cells by puncturing membrane. Curcumin is extracted from the root of turmeric and has been used as medicine for thousands of years. It aids digestion, helps fight infection and guards against heart attacks. More recently it has been tested against pain, thrombosis and cancer.

    A heap of people here are really talking about the health benefits of Turmeric.

    I heard some researcher on the wireless the other day saying that India had one of the lowest rates of dementia in the world.Possibly due to the large amounts of Turmeric in their diet.

    Preliminary medical research
    See also: Curcumin
    Turmeric is currently being investigated for possible benefits in Alzheimer's disease,[10] cancer,[11][12] arthritis, and other clinical disorders.[13][14] As an example of preliminary laboratory research, turmeric ameliorated the severity of pancreatitis-associated lung injury in mice.[15]
    According to a 2005 article in the Wall Street Journal, research activity into curcumin and turmeric is increasing.[16] The U.S. National Institutes of Health currently has registered 61 clinical trials completed or underway to study use of dietary curcumin for a variety of clinical disorders (dated June 2011).[17]


    Turmeric rhizome
    Some research shows compounds in turmeric to have anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, however, curcumin is not one of them.[18
