Got achy bones? Then take some turmeric. UPI reports that a new clinical study out of Australia shows that the spice helps ease the pain of arthritis. While hardly a cure-all, senior researcher Benny Antony declared that turmeric extract "can be considered an option" for treating osteoarthritis of the knee. "This is a promising, encouraging study," added Dr. Houman Dinesh, who specializes in pain management at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital.
