The health benefits of turmeric have been documented for over 5,000 years, and is known to contain a wide spectrum of physiological activity. Researchers have found that turmeric possesses outstanding dynamic properties as an anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory agent. Turmeric is one of the most important spices to prevent the free-radical damage and chronic systemic inflammation associated with cancers, degenerative diseases, and aging.

Known as the "Golden Goddess", turmeric has been used since before recorded history to enhance digestion, purify the blood, and treat diseases of all kinds. Those who are serious about maintaining a healthy lifestyle and living happily into old age would do well to include turmeric-based curries as part of their regular diet.

Eating together as a family during adolescence is associated with lasting positive effects on dietary quality in young adulthood, according to researchers at the University of Minnesota.

More than 1,500 students were surveyed once during high school and again when they were 20 years old to determine the long-term effects of family meals on diet quality, social eating, meal structure and meal frequency. Participants were asked questions such as how often they ate family meals, how much they enjoyed sitting down to a meal with family or friends, if they had a tendency to eat on the run and how often they ate breakfast, lunch and dinner...
