Curry cures cancer?

Researchers at Johns Hopkins have found that curry may prevent colon cancer:

For an average of six months, the patients [in the study] received three daily oral doses of 20 milligrams of quercetin (an antioxidant found in onions) and 480 milligrams of curcumin (found in tumeric, one of the main ingredients of curry).

The average number of polyps in the patients declined by 60.4 percent, and the average size of the polyps decreased by 50.9 percent, the study said.
