Would you like to extend your life for a few more years?

So, ask yourself this question: "Do I like pepper?"... If your answer is "no", I think you should reconsider this idea. The reason? To be able to live a few more years. This is certainly enough reason to start consuming pepper, right? I have to confess that I'm not much of a fan of pepper, but I think after that I'll change my habits and start eating pepper at least a couple of times a week. Full article here:
A study by Vermont University in the US, found that consumption of hot red chili peppers was associated with reduced mortality, with the chillies warding of heart conditions and strokes.

If only I could grow them, and they're expensive in the market.

Hehe.... If consuming pepper adds few more years to life than average life span of Indians would be 80+ years. :P

We eat many things that are supposed to ensure good health and longevity. Peppers are used in our soups and chili as well as in salads.

Well I am thankful KNOWING my particular blood type and moms, demands Cayenne pepper for the BEST cardiovascular protection we can get BUT I would not recommend peppers for everybody because that is totalitarian thought which is no way to live life, especially a long and mentally/physically healthy one !
