Research: Eating hot peppers prolongs life
According to the study, which looked at the health records of half a million people in countries such as China, Italy, Iran and the United States, it was found that those who eat chili peppers reduce their risk of death from all causes by 25 percent.
According to a new study, eating hot peppers can lengthen your life. According to the study, which looked at the health records of half a million people in countries such as China, Italy, Iran and the United States, it was found that those who eat chili peppers reduce the risk of all-cause death by 25 percent.
The study was conducted by the Heart, Vascular and Thoracic Institute of the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. Senior author of this study, Dr. Bo Xu told the BBC: “Our study is not capable of answering questions such as exactly what kind of chili pepper, the mode and amount and frequency of intake, because it is the changing point between these studies. What is correct and consistent is a chemical known as capsaicin. and that the active ingredient found in hot peppers probably mediates many potential health benefits. "
The study also found that compared to individuals who rarely or never ate the cayenne pepper, those who ate cayenne pepper had a relative reduction in cardiovascular deaths 26 percent, cancer deaths 23 percent, and all-cause deaths 25 percent.
Previous studies have found that capsaicin has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that help prevent cancer, researchers also found that eating chili peppers had a lower risk of dying from heart disease.
Too much food is objectionable
However, a study of over 4,500 people found that those who ate more than 50 grams of cayenne pepper a day reported twice as much memory loss.
Dr. Xu: “In these previously published studies, we were surprised to find that regular consumption of cayenne pepper is associated with an overall risk reduction in all-cause, CVD and cancer deaths. This highlights that dietary factors may play an important role in overall health. The precise causes and mechanisms that may explain our findings It is therefore impossible to say with certainty that eating more chili peppers can prolong life and reduce deaths, especially from cardiovascular factors or cancer. More research, particularly evidence, is needed to confirm these preliminary findings from randomized controlled trials, "he said. p>
