Hi all, I use a number of spices, turmeric, cinnamon and more, and found this article which gives scientific/medical evidence as to why they work. Since using spices, together with Vitamin D3 I have not had any chest infections for two and a half years now, following a winter with 5 infections and hospitalisation for double pneumonia. It's the first time Ive found a professional article giving credibility to the efficacy of spices. It's a pretty dense article and on first scan I can't see any specific reference to lung conditions but the evidence about inflammation markers in the body is pretty compelling. See what you think. But please note claque's reply below about predatory publishers as I hadn't realised omicsonline is one of these outfits.
