WOW! Such an interesting post! Like Deb, I quickly researched the link between this delicious spice and Alzheimer's! I found nothing negative about its use and am interested in looking into it more.
I'm really old to realize that EVERYTHING a person needs to survive is growing on this planet! Shelter, food, clothing, medicines...and even beauty is right here.
Heart meds originated from digitalis (foxglove)...aspirin in willow...most of our medicines came from experimentation...and many are very successful.
Thanks for giving this info to ponder! (And welcome...post often!).....Pam
