Turmeric Cure Evidence Grows
A few years ago, a coworker from India said Turmeric is their answer to most common ailments, such as stomachaches, sore throats and countless others. It seemed suspicious. However, while some curative attributes may be anecdotal, but evidence grows that turmeric, properties of which are actually used as an ingredient in medications, has been proven as a cure for some ailments and potential cure for many others.
Countless studies have shown healing powers from turmeric elements. Recent research on the effect of aromatic turmerone, a turmeric extract, shows that the plant extract may help regenerate damaged brain cells after things like a stroke. Neural stem cells (NSCs) can do some regeneration after damage from a stroke, but not from the damage caused by Alzheimer’s disease and other degenerative brain diseases. However, the study shows turmeric makes a difference in promoting that activity for all reasons, including dementia. However, the testing was only done on animals so far.

The "blueprint" model of genetics: one gene → one protein → one cellular behavior, which was once the holy grail of biology, has now been supplanted by a model of the cell where epigenetic factors (literally: "beyond the control of the gene") are primary in determining how DNA will be interpreted, translated and expressed. A single gene can be used by the cell to express a multitude of proteins and it is not the DNA alone that determines how or what genes will be expressed. Rather, we must look to the epigenetic factors to understand what makes a liver cell different from a skin cell or brain cell. All of these cells share the exact same 3 billion base pairs that make up our genome, but it is the epigenetic factors, e.g. regulatory proteins and post-translational modifications, that make the determination as to which genes to turn on and which to silence, resulting in each cell’s unique phenotype. Moreover, epigenetic factors are directly and indirectly influenced
