What would you say if someone told you most of your friends were addicted to drugs? It might sound ridiculous, but according to many scientists, most people in the world are addicted to drugs, maybe even you. When they talk about drugs, they aren’t talking about the illegal ones you can go to jail for. Instead, they are talking about sugar, which many believe to be a drug.

Most of us love to eat delicious food. We also want to stay healthy, strong, and energetic. Well, there is a bright yellow spice from the East that we can put in our food to help us do both. It’s called Turmeric.
For thousands of years, turmeric has been used as a dye, a spice, and a medicine in South East Asia, India, and the Middle East. It has long been known for its health properties, but recently Western scientists have discovered just how powerful of a medicine turmeric really is. It can help prevent cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol, improve our liver function, and more.
