Skip to comments.Chili peppers can decrease colorectal cancer risk, claims new research

If you don't eat chili peppers or hot curry much you may want to reassess that given new research that claims the peppers and curry can play a role in reducing the risk of colorectal and bowel tumors, as well as extend a person's lifespan by 30 percent.
The study claims the active ingredient in chili peppers, called dietary capsaicin, decreases the cancer risk as it triggers chronic activation of an ion channel called TRPV1, which is a sensory neuron that protects the intestine against acidity and spicy chemicals.
In essence adding chili peppers and hot curries to the diet can not only lower the risk of bowel cancer the foods can extend life and even boost memory, according to the research.
The peppers and curry intake can also help burn off calories more easily, and earlier research indicates capsaicin lowers blood pressure.

Hot Cha Cha!
That is good news for me!
We’re supposed to eat them, yes? Ouch...
They cook the bowels from the inside out and induce a high velocity flushing action. God help me, but I can’t stop eating the hot stuff.
If I can plug a favorite product here, if you have a Buffalo Wild Wings near you, they sell bottles of their sauce, and their curry is very good. It has some preservatives and additives I normally try to avoid, but will allow myself to indulge in every now and then. Their curry sauce over some shrimp on a bed of jasmine rice....Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
Hehe, good one. I love my spicy foods too. I guess if you feel the burn of means you are getting healthy.
“Were supposed to eat them, yes? Ouch...”
You could apply them directly but I’d rather not.
The guy went back a week later and complained, "For all the good those things did, I could have shoved 'em up my ass...."
There fire breathing Hungarian peppers in my garden. I have NO idea what to do with them... Guess I’ll dry them and turn them into medicine. LOL
I like hot food. However, people should be advised that the Wild Buffalo Wings Atomic (IIRC) Wings are near lethal. My husband was laughing at me, at first, as my face turned red. He then started to become concerned when the sweat began. By the time I was unable to finish eating the order, he actually had his keys out and was about to take me to the ER.
I suffered no lasting ill effects, but be aware that when they say *hot*, they mean it.
Fart your way to good health! I just pity the poor guy standing next to him.
FWIW, a couple of swigs a day from a giant Tabasco bottle has been my regimen throughout the cold season for the last seven years. I still get little snifflers, but have only missed a half day of work in those seven years due to a cold.
I guess I am going to have to die 30% sooner because I am not eating those things. They burn me all the way through......... if you catch my drift!
But can you break wind without breaking the sound barrier?
Yep, I love hot foods, but for me, somewhere about the habanero level (100,000-300,000 Scoville units) is my upper threshold for where the heat transitions from a serious flavor enhancer to mild torture. When I push into that territory or sometimes a little beyond I always have copious amounts of ice cream or frozen yogurt on hand, lol.
If this is true, then it would simple to check the populations of the world who eat a lot of chili peppers and see what their rates of colorectal cancer are compared to populations that eat few or no chili peppers.
Not without creating spontaneous human combustion.
Hi Ref! I’m sorry to hear about your experience. That’s scary! It’s funny to me that you and Joe brought up BWW. I LOVE LOVE LOVE their boneless blazin’ wings - and actually crave them at times, which tells me that my body must be needing them for whatever reason. Anyway, on one occasion, I wasn’t careful and somehow got a small bit of the atomic in my eye. I wanted to die. My darling wifeee laughed as my face turned bright red and tears gushed from both eyes. My face was contorting as the server approached the table and tried to be sweetly consoling - as she obviously thought I was sobbing over bad news. My wife just busted out laughing and heads turned our way as I pitifully sobbed back “I..I...I got sauce.. Sauce... My eye!! Owweeeee!”. Pathetic.
That’s what I was thinking.
We judge our peppers on a "double burn" scale...
Lol...per post #21:
There is a Buffalo Wild Wings in town, I'll have to check it out.
What are the controls in the experiment?
Studies like these are pretty useless. Eat a varied diet of plants and animals, move often, and get a good night’s rest.
Maybe you’ll live longer, maybe not.
With all the talk about Buffalo Wild Wings, I did a search and found their website:
You can enter your zip code and it shows locations near you.
They show their available sauces, but it doesn’t look like you can order them via mail order...
‘Braveheart’ at the south’s ‘Wild Wing’ restaurants puts ANY sauce at ‘Buffalo Wild Wing’ to shame...not even a contest.

Get yourself a can of Creole style creamed Navy Beans (although I also use regular pinto beans or chili beans, too)
Heat them in a skillet and mix in some McCormick's Hot Madras Curry, turmeric (till you get the aroma and golden color you want), add a dash of powdered ginger and McCormick's Garam Masala, and sweeten it up with some Tabasco.
It takes about 5-10 minutes.
A few years ago I dated a lovely woman..who has a passion, nay, a craving, for the HOTTEST food..she eats a scotch bonnet like I eat a plum. She actually carries a little container of hot chili powder to sprinkle on her food. So, on our second date, we’re out to dinner..having a lovely time...I noticed her adding the chili to her food, but didn’t think much of it..that night, I take her home,..we liked each other from our first meeting..so, there’s a pretty passionate kiss, tongues probing..and after about 15 seconds, my lips and tongue BEGIN TO BURN......I start sweating like I’d just run a 10k..it was wild..
It also cures most form of brain cancer.. After eating the stuff..you usually S**T your brains out..
Like minds post at the same time.
The article also claims IQ enhancement from such trash food.
Were that so, cultures eating such stuff would have enhanced IQ scores. But, Mexicans test out less intelligent than Caucasians, and have so done for decades of testing.
I’m fermenting some Jalapenos right now, smell good.
I’ve got about 35 quarts pickled, 5 pints of relish, a gallon frozen, a quart of dried (about 5 quart of slices before drying), peppers in everything else I pickle, peppers in my tomato sauce, and my pepper plants are still producing.
My buddy is going to bring me some of his ghost peppers we’re going to ferment and make hot sauce.
Here in the upper Midwest, where in many places ketchup is considered highly spicy, why are there so many crusty old codgers living into their 90’s? While I love hot food, I was taken aback yesterday when an African woman in the grocery line with me had a huge bag of habanero peppers. I asked how she planned to use all those peppers. She replied that she cooked just about everything with these peppers.
Ya suppose it’s a suppository?
Not one Red Hot Chili Peppers reference yet?
Unfortunately most people can’t long tolerate chili pepper enemas. Thanks Innovative.
Yum! I love both.
Thanks for the info.
All while she eats some bland hig-fiber cereal crap.
Have to show her this and ask who's guts are healthiest?
I use tooth pick drops of stuff similar to that, on my pizza, and other foods. Make darn sure to mix it in so as to not eat a concentrated pocket—or experience a hot time for awhile.
On our third date I took my now wife of 32 years to a great Mexican joint. Afterwords and without thinking she hit me with a deep kiss and her eyes got a bit big when the peppers I had eaten started reacting on her tongue.
I got a big laugh but she was not so appreciative.
An African woman? What was she doing in the upper Midwest?

Great news! I love Tabasco.
Good one :)
I grow different kinds of hot peppers, some hotter than others. The Tiny little White Habaneros are at the top of the hot scale. We are addicted and I put them in just about everything. It is a nice plus to finally hear about a food we love that is not evil.
Does Sriracha count? It’s good on ice cream and bacon:)
