A yellow powder that proved to be healthy even for blocking the growth of melanoma tumor cells. Maybe the reason why mother put this yellow powder on the just shaved bold head of children doing their puja to prevent skin-cancer, a tradition that now shows the real sense by researches done at the University of Texas Cancer center in july 2005.

A hint for us ? Don't throw traditions away like that, they might be very useful on several levels !

Here this man was selling this turmeric at the vegetable market in the center of Madurai.
