Fish Information
My vacation is over. It is once a year. But I did not take any vacation last year. I went to Barcelona and Amsterdam. Restaurant business is normally slow after Memorial Day and it is good time to travel.
Fish is not much changed. Uni Is getting bad because of summer, Maines uni season is over about 3-4 weeks ago, California is short harvest. So we can get uni from Japan only. This is small one and the price is high. And I saw the news about uni in Japan. It is same as California, it means global warming. Stop Trump otherwise we cannot eat uni near future.
We can get Japanese fish tomorrow and Thursday as usual.

Turmeric Extract May Prevent, Even Reverse Diabetes (Type 1 and 2)
If you’ve been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, then you might just want to pick yourself up some turmeric. You don’t need to read below but Turmeric, curcumin works for diabetes prevention.
GreenMedInfo reports on the findings being described as a “remarkable human clinical study” published in the Diabetes Care journal from the American Diabetes Association, reports that “turmeric extract was 100% successful” in preventing pre diabetes from progressing to type 2 diabetes over the course of 9 months.
Performed by Thailand researchers, the study’s primary object was to assess the efficacy of curcumin, the primary polyphenol in turmeric which gives the spice its golden hue, in delaying the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in a prediabetic population.
The study design was a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial including 240 subjects who met the American Diabetic Association’s criteria for prediabetes. All subjects were randomly assigned to receive either 250 mg of curcuminoid or placebo capsules for 9 months.
“After 9 months of treatment, 16.4% of subjects in the placebo group were diagnosed with T2DM, whereas none were diagnosed with T2DM in the curcumin-treated group. In addition, the curcumin-treated group showed a better overall function of β-cells, with higher HOMA-β (61.58 vs. 48.72; P < 0.01) and lower C-peptide (1.7 vs. 2.17; P < 0.05). The curcumin-treated group showed a lower level of HOMA-IR (3.22 vs. 4.04; P < 0.001) and higher adiponectin (22.46 vs. 18.45; P < 0.05) when compared with the placebo group.”
“A 9-month curcumin intervention in a prediabetic population significantly lowered the number of prediabetic individuals who eventually developed T2DM. In addition, the curcumin treatment appeared to improve overall function of β-cells, with very minor adverse effects. Therefore, this study demonstrated that the curcumin intervention in a prediabetic population may be beneficial.”
