Eating spicy food may help you live longer

Eating spicy food may help you live longer. That’s the conclusion of US scientists who analysed the results of a survey conducted among over 16,000 Americans for a period of up to 23 years. They discovered that people who regularly eat hot red chilli peppers had a 13% lower mortality rate than their peers. One possible explanation may be that capsaicin, a chemical found in chili peppers, plays an important role in cellular and molecular mechanisms that prevent obesity and modulate coronary blood flow.
