Curry for life
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.”
