> I looked hard for info on heat sensitivity too last night & found nothing. I will continue to check & will ask a couple of my (ex-) profs if they know. But I did find ancedotal reports that people in India who eat lots of curries or other foods containing curcumin have less older people with Alzheimer. But because there are a number of different things that can affect Alzheimer, it's not enough to go on.

It's just that kind of information, though, that lends circumstantial support to the inactivation of the COX effect by cooking; Alzheimer's is strongly influenced by antioxidant status, and virtually all compounds arising from metabolism of curcumin are antioxidants. It seems that only the parent compound is COX inhibitory (my assumption).
