Bring on the Curry

A week or so ago I had a periodic medical check-up and discovered that among my other persistent but not life-threatening physical shortcomings I have very modestly elevated levels of triglycerides. Advice? East more veggies and fruit. Exercise more. The usual. Good advice, I know, and I am trying to heed it. But today on NPR comes this report on the virtues of spices, especially turmeric, for moderating (at least in the short term) triglycerides. That reminded me of this report a while back in The New York Times that turmeric also is good for mitigating joint inflammation and pain. That is good for the incipient osteoarthritis in my ankles! And I already like curry.
