Hungry? Think Curry!!

This will make my husband happy. New Scientist is reporting that eating curry can up your brain power. At least it seemed to improve the mental zip of some elderly Asians in tests performed at the National University of Singapore. Kedley will be saddened to learn that it only takes occasional consumption to see the benefit, but I'm guessing his motto will be: "If a little is good, more must be better." Better tasting, anyway. Bon Appetit (or the Asian equivalent.)

Update--08/07: Yep, the study is right. Ked made curry last night, and we both instantly noted an increase in smarts factor--not in ourselves, but in those elderly Asians! They suddenly looked very smart to us for having curry on the menu. It was delicious!!

Update II--08/08: Mmmm, curry leftovers. Making extra was so smart!
