Before you run out and re-stock your refrigerator with fresh chili peppers, you should know that this study’s findings come with some major caveats.
Could eating spicy food — particularly food seasoned with fresh chili pepper — help you live longer?
That’s certainly what some headlines suggested last week after the publication in the BMJof a large study from China that looked at the link between spicy-food consumption and how long people live.
The study, which involved more than 500,000 Chinese residents aged 30 to 79, reported that individuals who ate spicy food six or seven days a week were 14 percent less likely to die during a seven-year period than their peers who ate spicy food less than once a week.
The effect seemed to be stronger among people who consumed fresh, rather than dried, chili pepper (the main spice used by the Chinese participants in this study).
The effect was significantly weaker, however, among people who also drank alcohol. (That’s not good news for individuals who can’t imagine eating chicken vindaloo, red curry or pork tacos without their favorite brew.)
