that’s right, folks, curry… that spicy, smelly food that some people hate to love is actually a cancer killing elixer of a spice.

according to Reuters:

Researchers at the Cork Cancer Research Center in Ireland treated esophageal cancer cells with curcumin — a chemical found in the spice turmeric, which gives curries a distinctive yellow color — and found it started to kill cancer cells within 24 hours.

now I like most Indian cookery, and their foods are some of the most exotic out there, but you gotta wonder, sometimes age old wisdom can be eons ahead of the furthest scientific research:

For more than 5,000 years turmeric has been used extensively in the diets of south Asian countries such as India and has been an important part of Eastern cultural traditions, and has been included in the medicine in China, according to Mercola. It has several uses as a medicine that includes anti-inflammatory, detoxing of the liver, and improves digestion. The active ingredient curcumin has also been linked to possible future treatments of Alzheimer’s & arthritis.
