Curry as brain food

Eating certain curry dishes may improve the cognitive performance of elderly people, report scientists from the National University of Singapore. Apparently, the curcumin in tumeric, often used in curry, may prevent the plaque build-up in the brain that’s associated with Alzheimer’s.

From New Scientist: “What is remarkable is that apparently one needs only to consume curry once in a while for the better cognitive performance to be evidenced,” says Ng, who says he wants to confirm the results, possibly in a controlled clinical trial comparing curcumin and a placebo.
