Michael A. Smith, M.D. discusses the health benefits of turmeric and why it makes big pharma a little nervous.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Turmeric is the golden spice that spans cultures, making all types

of food appear more appetizing and taste delicious. 

Michael A. Smith, M.D., in conjunction with Life Extension, the trailblazer in the $36 billion U.S. dietary supplements industry, has just released Curious about Curcumin? The golden spice that everyone should take! in e-book form available exclusively and for free at

Turmeric is the spice that makes the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry a little nervous. "If there's anything in the natural world that could take away some of the "business" of the drug industry, it may be turmeric," says Dr. Smith.

In studies, turmeric has been shown to ease chronic inflammation, help maintain a robust immune system, promote healthy brain function and support healthy blood throughout the body. It may even help prevent cancer by several mechanisms, including its ability to support healthy cell growth.  And it's available at health food stores and supermarkets across the country for pennies on the dollar compared to the cost of prescription drugs. 

"The war against dietary supplements has been going on for a long time," says Dr. Smith. "For every news story about the benefits of supplements, there always seem to be quoting pharma-backed "experts" who caution that we need more research in spite of a huge body of evidence. They tell us to talk to our doctor first, which may be true, but we all know the doctor will choose drugs every time. Sometimes it seems like there is a real concerted effort to keep us confused and in the dark."

Curious about Curcumin also features a memory quiz, directions for making a soothing skin care mask and a list of foods that can help reduce pain.

A graduate of the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, Dr. Smith completed an internship in internal medicine at the University of Utah and three years of a residency in radiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Dr. Smith previously hosted Healthy Talk, both a daily and weekly health show on He is also the author of The Supplement Pyramid – How to Build Your Personalized Nutritional Regimen and the Nine Pillars of Weight Loss.
