GOOD news for lovers of a red hot curry-spicy food could actually help you live longer! Scientists at Coronell University in the US say that populations which enjoy a wide range of spicy foods tend to live longer than those on milder diets. This they say could be due to the antibacterial qualities of some spices which help to keep poisoning and other infection at bay. Spices such as cinnamon and cumin are especially known for their antibacterial effects other spices with protective qualities include cloves.



BRITISH SCIENTISTS believe that curry could hold the key to better anti-cancer drugs. Researchers at the University of Leicester, working with the Medical Research Council and Leicester, Royal Infirmary, suggest that cumin, which is widely used in Indian cooking, could have tumor-suppressing properties. The team is currently testing the drug and developing a tablet from for cucumis, alleviating the need for patient to eat several curries a day. According to professor Andu Gescher at Leicester University, the trials are unique:"We don't really know how the cumin gets from being parts of a curry into the target tissue in the body, and for how long it stays within the body. We are carrying out clinical trials to work this out".
