You’re invited to an engaging luncheon which promises to be educational and delicious. Bharat Aggarwal, PhD, professor of experimental therapeutics, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, began studying the cancer-fighting properties of curcumin–the active ingredient in turmeric–in the 1990s. During that time, he says, it was hard to get his colleagues to take him seriously. Now, the scientific community is discovering the medicinal powers of turmeric and many other spices.
In Dr. Aggarwal’s new book, Healing Spices: How to Use 50 Everyday and Exotic Spices to Boost Health and Beat Disease, he draws upon numerous studies that show how various spices can help prevent or treat specific ailments.
