Curcumin eradicates brain protein fragments to fight Alzheimer's disease
Curcumin means Turmeric. Turmeric means curry. Curry means our Japanese curry rice.
 Alzheimer is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, affecting more than 5 million Americans.
 Women are particularly at risk for the disease, making up two-thirds of Alzheimer's cases. Women in their 60s are about twice as likely to develop Alzheimer's disease during the rest of their lives as they are to develop breast cancer, according to data provided by the Alzheimer's Association.
 Also at issue is the health of the primary caregivers of those with Alzheimer's and dementia. The emotional stress of caring for someone with the disease has been rated as "high" or "very high," with one-third of caregivers reporting symptoms of depression.
 In just a decade, deaths related to Alzheimer's have increased by 68 percent! "Alzheimer's disease is the only cause of death among the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed," the Alzheimer's Association reported.

 However, recent scientific breakthroughs involving turmeric, a popular, ancient Indian spice, offers new hope for those affected by Alzheimer's disease.
 Curcumin, one of turmeric's most beneficial compounds, has been proven to fight pain and inflammation, as well as help stimulate stem cell growth, a remarkable breakthrough for Alzheimer’s and dementia research.

Researchers now believe that turmeric could be key in helping repair brain damage in humans.
"Curcumin has demonstrated ability to enter the brain, bind and destroy the beta-amyloid plaques present in Alzheimer's with reduced toxicity," said Wellington Pham, Ph.D., assistant professor of Radiology and Radiological Sciences and Biomedical Engineering at Vanderbilt University and senior author of the study.
 Accumulation and aggregation of protein fragments, known as beta-amyloid, drives the irreversible loss of neurons in Alzheimer's disease.

Developing small molecules to reduce this accumulation or promote its demolition is crucial, but the ability of these small molecules to cross the blood-brain barrier has been a restricting factor for drug delivery into the brain.

Yogurt cuts risk of type 2 diabetes
Published in the journal Diabetologia, the study showed that eating yogurt in place of a portion of other snacks such as crisps also reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The study found that higher consumption of yogurt, compared with no consumption, can reduce the risk of new-onset type 2 diabetes by 28%, and that higher consumption of low-fat fermented dairy products – including all yogurt varieties and some low-fat cheeses – also reduced the relative risk of diabetes by 24% overall. According to lead researcher Dr Nita Forouhi, from the Medical Research Council Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge: “This research highlights that specific foods may have an important role in the prevention of type 2 diabetes and are relevant for public health messages.” The research was based on the large EPIC-Norfolk study, which includes more than 25,000 men and women living in Norfolk, UK. It compared a detailed daily record of all the food and drink consumed over a week at the time of study entry among 753 people who developed new-onset type 2 diabetes over 11 years of follow-up with 3,502 randomly selected study participants. This allowed the researchers to examine the risk of diabetes in relation to the consumption of total dairy products as well as individual dairy products. Total dairy, total high-fat dairy or total low-fat dairy consumption was not associated with new-onset diabetes once important factors like healthier lifestyles, education, obesity levels, other eating habits and total calorie intake were taken into account. Total milk and cheese intakes were also not associated with diabetes risk. However, those with the highest consumption of low-fat fermented dairy products (such as yoghurt, fromage frais and low-fat cottage cheese) were 24% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes over the 11 years, compared with non-consumers. Previous studies on the link between dairy product consumption (high fat or low fat) and diabetes have proved inconclusive, prompting this more detailed assessment of diary product consumption. Type 2 diabetes is common and its incidence is increasing. In 2013, there were 382 million people worldwide with diabetes and by 2035 that number will increase to 592 million, according to the International Diabetes Federation. While this type of study cannot prove that eating dairy products causes the reduced diabetes risk, dairy products do contain beneficial constituents such as vitamin D, calcium and magnesium. In addition, fermented dairy products may exert beneficial effects against diabetes through probiotic bacteria and a special form of vitamin K (part of the menaquinone family) associated with fermentation. “At a time when we have a lot of other evidence that consuming high amounts of certain foods, such as added sugars and sugary drinks, is bad for our health, it is very reassuring to have messages about other foods like yogurt and low-fat fermented dairy products, that could be good for our health,” said Dr Forouhi.
I love yogurt, especially Greek God brand. I eat it with fresh blue berries. TAKA

It is hard to make new dish but try always.

Aji is Japanese Jack fish, Japanese horse mackerel.

Skip breakfast? Just eat banana

Bananas are highly nutritious, and a large number of studies confirm their many health benefits. This article takes a closer look at the research into these much-loved fruits.

Like most fruits, bananas are rich in dietary fiber and can help sweep the colon of accumulated waste. However, a study published in Anaerobe in December 2011 also found that bananas can improve digestive function. The results showed that women who consumed two medium-sized bananas per day demonstrated reduced bloating and greater amounts of beneficial Bifidobacterium gut bacteria, than the control groups.

There's a good reason why so many people feel happier after eating a banana or two: One medium-sized banana contains an impressive 22 percent of our recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin B6, a water-soluble nutrient that helps the mood-regulating hormone serotonin cross our blood-brain barriers.

Moreover, bananas contain small amounts of the amino acid tryptophan, which possesses proven sedative and mood-boosting properties. For example, a review featured in the Journal of Psychiatry & Neuroscience discovered that tryptophan "significantly decreased quarrelsome behaviours and increased agreeable behaviours and perceptions of agreeableness. A study published in Psychopharmacology also found that tryptophan can help treat insomnia.

A small but growing body of research suggests that eating more bananas can reduce our blood sugar and cholesterol levels. A study published in the April 2014 edition of the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, for instance, found that banana extracts could suppress the carbohydrate absorption rate of diabetic rats, thus providing anti-diabetic effects. The banana's cholesterol-lowering effects, on the other hand, were revealed in a study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements, which proved that the flavonoids in bananas could reduce cholesterol, fatty acids and triglycerides. These results suggest that eating more bananas can considerably benefit our cardiovascular health and reduce our risk of heart disease.

Compared to other fruits, bananas contain moderate amounts of most essential nutrients. Aside from the aforementioned vitamin B6, one medium-sized banana supplies our bodies with approximately 17 percent of our RDI of vitamin C, 16 percent of our RDI of manganese, 12 percent of our RDI of potassium and between 1 and 8 percent of our RDI of most other vitamins and minerals, including the all-important magnesium.
It is just a piece of banana but this is banana. I like eat it straight or make smoothie, acai bowl.
