I rarely watch daytime TV (usually at work), but I was home on April 5th and just happened to have the TV on and Dr. OZ had Dr. Sanjay Gupta as his guest; I think this episode originally aired on Jan. 15, 2013.

It’s tagged as “Dr. Sanjay Gupta sits down with Dr. Oz for the first time ever!” and they reveal the secrets to a long life and what you need to know to prevent a stroke. Plus, are cellphones dangerous? The shocking brain cancer connection for women.

On the topic of secrets to a long life, Dr. Sanjay Gupta share that he drinks a creamy cup of turmeric tea every night to help calm his nerves, but the benefits of this colorful drink don’t end there: A recent study suggests that curcumin, a brain-boosting chemical in turmeric, could help slow the progression of Alzheimer’s by helping hippocampal brain cells grow.
