curry for brain health

Yum!  Now that’s something I can live with: eating curry to stave off cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.  Researchers in Singapore found that people (aged 60-93) who ate curry even only occasionally scored higher on the Mini Mental Status Exam (MMSE) than those who never ate curry.  The curry spice, turmeric, contains curcumin, which has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  And the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease in the elderly in India is fourfold less than that in the United States.

in an alternate universe…

I would probably be in law school. No wait, if that were true, I would already be a lawyer and making $120K. But I’m not a lawyer. Nope, I’m still a student and I definitely don’t make anything even remotely close to $120K. But I have no regrets about the choice […]

Well, because of Grey’s Anatomy, of course! Before you have a heart attack and call me a big fat hypocrite, I’m kidding!
Despite my aversion to blood and guts, I’ve been oddly drawn to surgery ever since I started med school. At first, it was probably because I was surrounded by gunners who all […]
