    Curry 'helps you live longer': Eating spicy food makes you 10% less likely to die says research
    People who ate spicy meals once or twice a week are 10 per cent likely to die than those who had them less, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences found

    Curry favour: Spicy good prolongs life says research
    Fiery foods could literally be the spice of life - as they can boost chances of living longer, researchers found.

    People who ate spicy meals like curry favourites tikka masala, jalfrezi and vindaloo once or twice a week were 10% less likely to die than those who had them less. Munching spicy foods daily led to a 14% lower risk of death.

    In the biggest study of its kind, the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences also found regular spice eaters were far less likely to die if they had diabetes, cancer, or heart or respiratory disease.

    Fresh and dried chilli peppers were the most commonly used spice in the study of 500,000 people aged between 30 and 80.

    Eating spicy food is good for you
    But researchers said the findings were “observational” and eating lots of spicy food could be linked to other lifestyle choices.

    Dr Nita Forouhi, of the University of Cambridge , said: “More research is needed.”

    A bioactive ingredient in spices, capsaicin, was already thought to be anti-obesity, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer.

    And any positives from spice could be wiped out if people drank more booze or exercised less, experts warned.

    Indian food is amazing, but strangely expensive.

    The curry paste in a can is very good much better than powder

    "eating lots of spicy food could be linked to other lifestyle choices."

    If you want to smell like someone from India, eat all of the curry you like.

    Me, I don't want to stand next to you if you smell like that.

    I don't get the appeal of eating a meal and your mouth burning at the same time.

    I don't eat curry because I don't like the smell, but I put Sriracha on everything that isn't sweet. That's right, I said everything. Mmmm, crave that heat! Like @reno, I'm gonna live forevuh! I'm gonna learn how to fly. High!




    Thank you for the reps, @reno! :)

    Thank you for the reps, @1Vegasgirl! :)

    I can't stand the smell of curry either, it's the one smell I can't hang around for, that and diesel exhaust.

    I never liked spicy food. To me, it doesn't add anything to the food except heat, not flavor. Besides, if I eat spicy food, I'll be shitting fire for the rest of the day.
