  1. Curcumin also impacts aluminum binding to chromatin DNA, which is of relevance. After aluminum mordanting of chicken blood smears, several chelating dyes and reagents were found to detect metal binding to chromatin DNA by fluorescence microscopy. One of them [the reagents] was curcumin. Aluminum is a risk factor for AD.
