Curry had long been thought to have healing powers in certain cultures; a new study finds that the bright yellow curry spice, turmeric, can also kill off cancer cells.

While many studies are assessing the effects of curcumin -- a compound commonly found in curry -- in treating arthritis and dementia; the study published in the British Journal of Cancer reported that the extract can start killing cancer cells within 24 hours.

It, however, loses its anti-cancer properties as soon as it is digested.

Faulty cells normally die through apoptosis or programmed suicide when proteins known as caspases are switched on in these cell; curcumin, however, is believed to use an alternative cell signaling system to make these cells digest themselves.

The extract has shown promising results in killing esophageal cancer cells — one of the leading cancers in the modern world linked to rising rates of obesity, alcohol intake and reflux disease — in the laboratory.

Scientists are optimistic that their findings will help develop new methods to treat cancer.

Tumeric is fantastic!

Aloo tikki, naan and mutter paneer (vindaloo). miss that stuff... don't get so much English stuff in Germany..

There's still a little Pakistani kitchen in Manchester city centre where you can get a three course curry meal for a couple of quid.

This particular timewarp these Muslims are locked in is a beautiful one.

The kitchen has been there since the early seventies -- usually you'd pay about 4-5 times as much for the equivalent scran (food) in an Indian/Pakistani restaurant.

I just remembered I miss their curry.:(
