    Two non-myths about turmeric's benefits:
    1) It is delicious.
    2) It's pretty effective at turning stuff yellow - especially helpful if you're trying to make "cheesy" type foods as a vegan.

    I have ZERO faith in ANYTHING unless I see how the experiment is done to be sure theyve got control groups and large population samples and double blind studies and that they aren't cherry picking. (Eg, having one person get better after eating something, then claiming "THIS CURES CANCER!!!!"

    I NEVER heard of this golden latte thing. Maybe it hasn't trickled down to the hipsters of my city yet.

    I was told that it was used as a remedy, against micro infections in india, I thought why not and use it from time to time, but it doesn't tastes much.

    Tumeric does have proven anti-inflammatory effects. Of course all the miraculous claims are not true but in a stronger concentrated dose it does have proven effects.

    Also, reading verbatim what's written on the screen speaks to how lazy Scishow has gotten.

    Ok fine superfood is like Wonder Women...get it. BUT I LOVEEEEEEE my golden latte and I love my curries and I really love fresh turmeric grated on my salads. I like what you said, I’m just not sure I buy everything you said. I think it is very good for your health, NOTHING is a cure all not CBDs, not Chemo and not even Veggies xoox
