Gone are the days when parents used to tell their children, “Eat an apple a day, and keep the doctor away.” A new research, obviously carried out by a desi, says that you can ward off dementia and Alzheimer’s if you eat curry two or three times a week. How is that for a diet plan, eh?
Professor Murali Doraiswamy, of Duke University in North Carolina, said there was evidence that people who eat curry meals regularly have a lower risk of dementia. The key ingredient is curcumin, a component of the spice turmeric. Curcumin appears to prevent the spread of amyloid protein plaques – thought to cause dementia – in the brain.
If you are a desi living in the West, now is the time to invest in that curry house. Chances are that you will strike gold.
While we are at weird scientific announcements, Astrobiologist Dr Lewis Dartness revealed that living without gravity would cause space travelers’ bones and muscles not to develop properly, leaving them stunted and weak.
Not only that, body fluid will float up to the brain to give human heads a permanently swollen look and the outer space residing human race of the future will also be “pretty chubby” As there would be no dust around, human will morph into hairless beings.
In short, if the Star Trek franchise led you to believe that Captain Kirk (specially the version played by Chris Pine) is a handsome fellow with a normal sized head full of hair, scientific evidence says otherwise. Long-distance space travel will leave us humans short, fat and bald. I wonder if anyone will aspire to be astronauts anymore?
