Could this powder be ‘solid gold’?

Curcumin’s potential to fight cancer, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease excites researchers.

Looking for a cure for his arthritis, Melvin Wisoky of Long Island, N.Y., contacted Dr. Ajay Goel in Dallas to ask him what he thought about curcumin, an extract from the Indian spice turmeric.

Goel, director of epigenetics and cancer prevention at Baylor Research Institute, has been conducting extensive research into the extract, which has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immune-boosting properties. He told Wisoky it might help him, and it wouldn’t hurt him.

Based on that advice, Wisoky says, he started taking curcumin two years ago. He’s glad he did.
