Eat Spicy Food and Live Longer


A study which analysed the food habits and health details of nearly half a million Chinese people found that those who consumed spicy food six or seven days a week had a 14% reduced risk of dying compared with those who ate it less than once a week.

Eating spicy food was also associated with a lower risk of death due to cancer, ischemic heart diseases and respiratory diseases in both sexes, while in women, it corresponded with a reduced risk of death from infections.
