Turmeric is used extensively in the East and the Middle East as a condiment and culinary dye. In India, it is used to tint many sweet dishes. Apart from its wide use in Moroccan cuisine to spice meat, particularly lamb, and vegetables, its principal place is in curries and curry powders. It is used in many fish curries, possibly because it successfully masks fishy odors. When used in curry powders, it is usually one of the main ingredients, providing the associated yellow color.

Over the past few years, there have been a number of “smart” drugs developed to attack a range of different diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, metabolic diseases, cancers, and neurological diseases, but they are mono-targeted. If a disease has multiple pathways, as do the diseases mentioned above, then it follows that a mono-targeted drug is likely to be ineffective. Furthermore, “smart” drugs are often very expensive and can produce a variety of adverse side effects.
