Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death among men in the United States, yet the disease isn't nearly as common in India. Why? Researchers believe the key could be in curry.
Touted for its myriad health benefits, the main ingredient in the popular Indian dish — turmeric — has been shown to do everything from improve skin brightness to act as a natural antiseptic to fight prostate cancer. Enjoy our recipe for Curried Chicken Salad, featuring the star spice.
