Eating chilies can increase your life span: Study

New Delhi : Secret to a healthy and long life is regular exercise, healthy food and proper sleep. Other than this it has been learned that adding chilies to your diet can boost your life too.

According to a research by the American Heart Association (AHA), adding chillies to your diet can help you live longer. #TrueStory! According to a report by Fox News, the AHA recently tabled a study whose findings suggest that eating chillies can help people live longer.

Chilies have a lot of health benefits. According to the study, Chilies contain anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-cancer and blood-glucose regulating properties. These factors play a role in reducing a person’s risk of dying from cardiovascular disease or cancer.

More than 5,70,000 health records of people from the US, Italy, China and Iran were included in its study. “The candidates who ate chilli peppers regularly had a 26% relative reduction in cardiovascular mortality; a 23% relative reduction in cancer mortality; and a 25% relative reduction in all-cause mortality”, says the report by Fox News.

“We were surprised to find that in these previously published studies, regular consumption of chilli pepper was associated with an overall risk reduction of CVD (Cardiovascular Disease) and cancer mortality. It highlights that dietary factors may play an important role in overall health.

More research, especially evidence from randomised controlled studies, is needed to confirm these preliminary findings,” said the report’s senior author Dr Bo Xu to Fox News.
