This is a difficult book to review because it contains so much useful information. It's quite a revelation to read about how traditional remedies are now being consistently proven at least as effective as their costly and potentially dangerous pharmaceutical counterparts. Of the fifty spices/foods covered here, turmeric seems to have the power to heal or prevent the greatest number of maladies. Truly a super-spice, according to current extensive research trials. CURRY UP! Your body and your tastebuds will thank you.
