Dear Curiosity Journal,

Do you ever get curious about the life inside of your food or your connection to it? Did you know that the Ancient Greeks and Romans used radishes as medicine? Modern researchers have discovered that these rosy little bulbs are bursting with benefits including lowering the risk of diabetes, having cancer fighting properties, improving liver function, lowering risk of heart disease, improving digestion, and having antifungal properties which stop the growth of fungi that cause thrush and yeast infections. Radish leaves are even more nutritious than the bulbs, may help with Alzheimer’s, guard against anemia, and help lower blood pressure (WebMD). It truly is phenomenal all of the healing that our food can do for us. Plants and people – we’re made for each other.
