Spicy food might fight Alzheimer's

Admittedly, I'm not one to jump on the latest food research bandwagon, but when it says eating Indian food might help fight Alzheimer's, I'm definitely in. An article from WebMD published today indicates that researchers at UCLA have just completed a study with the VA that shows the antioxidant benefits and other chemical properties of curcumin (that which gives curry powder its mustard-yellow color) may not only help ward off, but may reduce the effects of Alzheimer's.

Research is ongoing at UCLA's Alzheimer's Disease Research Center.
