After reading this article, even if you are not fan of the hot peppers, i bet you will start eating at least 3 times a week. What makes me believe that ? Well the facts provided by recent research done by medical experts from the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and the University of Oxford and Harvard.
The research claims that the people who love and eat spicy food will have longer life, and they are less likely to suffer from dangerous diseases, such as: cancer, heart and respiratory diseases.
“Our analysis suggests a relation between eating spicy food and the length
of life, as well as reduced mortality,” a group of international researchers
have published this study in the British Medical Journal.
“We’ve observed the habits of more than 500,000 Chinese people, between 30 and 79 years. This study showed that people who consumed spicy and hot food every day, lived longer and they suffered less from
many diseases, including cancer.Our results corroborate the previous studies,which have pointed the potential protective effect of spicy food on the human health,” the researchers said that at the Chinese Academy of
Medical Sciences and the University of Oxford and Harvard.
The medical experts assume that the main “suspect” for this is capsaicin, the active compound found in chili peppers. Capsaicin has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which helps in the fight
against obesity and cancer.
