I’m allergic to curry. Just a faint whiff of it wafting out of a kitchen makes my stomach cramp. So when I read story after story about how good it is for you, I feel sad that I must live a curry-free existence. Past studies have shown that curry may slow down the effects of Alzheimer’s and dementia. The latest study demonstrates that curry shrinks colon polyps:
In the study, patients with pre-cancerous polyps in the colon who took a pill containing a combination of curcumin, which is found in the curry spice turmeric, and quercetin, an antioxidant found in onions, experienced a marked reduction in both the size and number of polyps.
I guess I’ll just have to eat lots of onions and hope for the best!
