Curry That Fights Cancer

"Turmeric, a key ingredient in curry, packs more than just a
mouthful of flavor. Its yellow pigment, curcumin, also helps ward
off disease. Studies suggest that curcumin inhibits the growth of
cancer, particularly colon cancer cells, and may even reduce the
risks of Alzheimer's disease. Now a new study shows that it could
also help prevent and treat a type of fatty liver disease that can
lead to cirrhosis. To get some curry in a hurry, sprinkle some curry
powder on your scrambled eggs-or add it to lentil soup, roasted sweet
potatoes, or chicken salad for a dash of extra zing."
