Spicy Arthritis Treatment?

Here's one we haven't heard of before:

Osteoarthritis: Turmeric Spice Might Provide Natural Remedy

Now before you start pouring tumeric on your horses meals, please note this statement:
"Investigators indicated the need for more research to determine the 'true efficacy and potential safety' of curcumin."

Remember "natural" does not necessarily mean "safe," (Cyanide is a naturally occurring substance, after all!) so we'll wait for additional guidance on this. Its nice to think there may be something besides NSAID's and joint supplements out there for treating arthritis, though.
