Eating Spicy Food Linked to a Longer Life

Nicholas Bakalar:

After controlling for family medical history, age, education, diabetes, smoking and many other variables, the researchers found that compared with eating hot food, mainly chili peppers, less than once a week, having it once or twice a week resulted in a 10 percent reduced overall risk for death. Consuming spicy food six to seven times a week reduced the risk by 14 percent.

This is great news! I’m eating buffalo wings this week to celebrate.
