    It's not a cure, but it can block a biochemical pathway to some degree.
    Avoiding oxidized cholesterol, any major source of unsaturated fat,
    and eating some berries, dark chocolate, etc., will do the same thing,
    but without any nasty side effects. Tumeric in large amounts, like
    other powerful antioxidants, can cause major problems. Talking of it
    as a "cure" is at best a misrepresentation, and in many cases this kind
    of thing is said to get people to buy a supplement - and big profits
    can be made. They even sell cinammon pills now. It's ridiculous. Do
    a google search for "ray peat" "carbon dioxide" and read through the
    material on those web sites, and you'll get a better idea of how all
    the claims fit together. I remember the oat bran craze on the 80s. I
    was eating it, and then all of a sudden, the price tripled, and then
    within a few years, it was much lower again. Don't be fooled by this.
    Don't you realize how every few weeks or so this kind of thing gets
    announced by the media. They are presenting this to you because they
    don't do real journalism any more, but they know people like to hear
    about the latest "miracle cure," so they can get ratings and sell
    ad/commercial space to advertisers.
