So recently on Oprah, Dr. Oz announced that people who consume Turmeric can avoid Alzheimer's. :
"Rates of Alzheimer's are significantly lower in certain parts of the world, especially India. Turmeric, a spice found in many curries and an essential part of the Indian diet, has very important properties that have been linked with Alzheimer's prevention. Dr. Doraiswamy says turmeric is an antioxidant and seems to protect the brain from the build up of the plaques that are believed to cause the disease."
Who can guess what will happen to our Turmeric plants now?
Nothing pisses me off more than mass exploitation of one singe plant other than one single plant ROOT.
