Can i use Curcumall in food?

Monday, May 9, 2011 11:09:50 PM America/New_York

Spiced for Your Health

Curcumin, contained in the common spice turmeric, may help mitigate a wide range of health issues. Ongoing research is examining the power of this traditional spice to confirm its potential to maintain health status and help you live well longer. We suggest spicing up your menu with a few new dishes featuring traditional curry spices.

Try adding turmeric any time you cook Asian, Indian and African dishes, such as rice, vegetables, chicken and fish curries, stir-fry, stews and casseroles.

This recipe for curried rice salad is a good option for a serving of whole grains. We suggest using extra virgin olive oil in place of the sesame oil. The average curry powder does not contain much curcumin, so to boost the healthful content of the dish, try using ½ teaspoon each of turmeric and cumin powders instead of the curry powder.

Legumes are a healthy source of plant proteins and fiber. Try a Three Bean Cassoulet that uses three different bean varieties and is just 10% fat. Incorporating curcumin makes for a tasty variation that can boost the benefits even more—omit the bay leaf and substitute turmeric, cumin and coriander (½ – 1 tsp each) for the parsley, basil and thyme.

Try some Lowfat Indian Cuisine like masala and lemon rice to envigorate your taste buds.

Curried cauliflower with chick peas combines a cruciferous vegetable, legume and curry. What could be healthier?

Take a look as Eating Well highlights cauliflower, the skinny starch. Pairing well with many flavors, this healthy cruciferous veggie is a great source of Vitamin C, folate, fiber, and Vitamin K (essential for blood clotting). Their collection contains several curried recipes for full flavor and good health.

Economics of life-extension therapies?

Monday, May 9, 2011 11:07:43 PM America/New_York

Q. Personal Economic Considerations - Living longer would mean needing more money for a longer time. Many people, by the time they reach their 70's, are worried about how long their retirement money will last, and are weary of a lifetime of work. How do you address personal economic considerations associated with longevity and life-extension therapies?

A. This is a long discussion, but it is not THAT expensive. It is MUCH less expensive than, say, having bypass surgery or chemotherapy. Of course, people consider those things "free" because insurance covers it (assuming one has insurance). The bottom line is that these therapies more than pay for themselves in terms of improved health and vitality.

Q. How do you address the population issues that might arise if people were able to live forever?

A. It is important to take future developments and technologies into consideration. If radical life extension were the only change in the world, that indeed would lead to problems. But future nanotechnology based manufacturing will enable virtually any product to be created at almost no cost and we will be able to meet the material needs of an expanding population. Ray Kurzweil discusses this in detail in his new book, The Singularity is Near, When Humans Transcend Biology. See http://www.singularity.com.

Should i stock-pile in light of CODEX?

Monday, May 9, 2011 11:06:41 PM America/New_York

Q. In light of CODEX, I am considering stock-piling my needs. Do you have any timeline that you would be either able or willing to disclose as to when this may start affecting enterprises such as yours and my ability to obtain such great products?

A. No need to stockpile yet. Even if Codex passes in the US, it will take a few years and you'll have plenty of notice. We are optimistic that we will stop it in the US, although it is already causing major problems elsewhere in the world.

How to test for smoking damage to lungs?

Monday, May 9, 2011 11:05:03 PM America/New_York

Q. I have smoked cigarettes for 16 years. What test can I take to assess the damage already done? How will my smoking history affect me as I go forward?

A. Any doctor can help you assess this with appropriate tests such as lung function and exercise treadmill (heart) and perhaps a chest X ray. Of course, the first step to stopping and correcting the damage is to quit smoking.
