Today's episode looks at Turmeric, the latest fashionable supplement available in various forms from capsules to lattes.

So there is some circumstantial evidence it's good for us.
This podcast takes a look at that evidence, but also explores whether the hype is driven by our own desire to find a simple exotic solution for our difficult lifestyle problems.
