Curry Addiction

curry-addictionA number of studies have claimed that the reaction of pain receptors to the hotter ingredients in curries, even Korma, leads to the body's release of endorphins and combined with the complex sensory reaction to the variety of spices and flavours, a natural high is achieved that causes subsequent cravings, often followed by a desire to move on to hotter curries.

Some refer to this as addiction, but other researchers contest the use of the word "addiction" in this instance.

Additionally, curry addiction is an example of a colloquial use of the word "addiction" as the medical definition of the word requires continued use despite harmful effects. And since medicine has not shown any harmful effects of curry consumption, the use of the word "addiction" is highly contestable.

Some studies have shown that ingredients in curry may help to prevent certain diseases, including colon cancer and Alzheimer's disease
