Matt Idleman Article Summaries Pre-AP Chem. (Block 1) 1/10/07 TITLE: “Spice of Life: Disease-fighting Flavors?” MAGAZINE: Consumer Reports: OnHealth AUTHOR: N/A DATE: May 2005 Edition Many people don’t know that spices are full of potential disease-fighting substances. In one USDA study of 27 cooking herbs, it was found that almost all of them had greater antioxidant power per gram than most fruits and vegetables. Other studies even show that spices can contain substances that battle inflammation and infection, stop cancer-causing enzymes, and promote the destruction of cancer cells. The first of the more promising spices is turmeric. The substance that gives the spice it’s orange color, curcumin, has been found to treat the early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease on animals. It has also shown effect on Cystic Fibrosis, pancreatic cancer, and multiple myeloma. Another healthy spice is cinnamon. Another USDA study has shown that eating cinnamon for 40 days reduces blood levels of sugar and triglycerides.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
