Eat curry to fight infection
It’s not just an apple a day that will keep the doctors away, but apparently a curry will do the job too.
US Scientists have claimed that “sustained consumption” of a particuarly spice found in the hot dish has infection fighting properties.
Researchers have found that curcumin, which is found in the spice turmeric increased a protein that boosted people’s natural immunity.
Professor Adrian Gombart of Oregon State University said: “It’s possible that sustained consumption over time may be healthy and help protect against infection especially in the stomach and intestinal tract.”
