A Curry A Day Keeps The Doctor Away?
From the Biochemical and Biophysical Communications Journal

...capsaicin.......can kill cancer by attacking the mitochondria of the tumour cell, commonly
known as its 'powerhouse', which produces ATP, the major energy-containing chemical in
the body. By binding proteins in the cancer cell mitochondria the compound triggers apoptosis,
or natural cell death, without harming the healthy surrounding cells.

"This is incredibly exciting and may explain why people living in countries like Mexico and India,
who traditionally eat a diet which is very spicy, tend to have lower incidences of many cancers
that are prevalent in the western world."
