Eating Curry Could Prevent Heart Disease, Study Finds



People who love a spicy curry could be eating their way to a healthy heart, researchers have discovered.

Scientists from the Chinese University of Hong Kong found that the compounds that give cayennes, jalapenos, habaneros and other chilli peppers their fiery heat help lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

The study also discovered that the piquant family of spices, called capsaicinoids, also lowers the risk of blood clots.

Researchers investigated the role of spices and the reduced risk of heart disease on laboratory hamsters, who were fed high-cholesterol diets before being split into two groups.

Only one group were given foods supplemented with capsaicinoids and scientists analysed the effects they had on the hamsters' heart health.

They discovered that the spicy compounds lowered the levels of cholesterol in hamsters by decreasing the accumulation of cholesterol by increasing the breakdown of the ebad fatsf.

The capsaicinoids blocked the cyclooxygenase-2 gene that makes arteries contract (which restricts the blood flow through the heart).

Researchers also noted that capsaicinoids may also reduce the size of fatty deposits already in the blood vessels, which narrow arteries in a way that could lead to heart attacks or strokes.

gWe concluded that capsaicinoids were beneficial in improving a range of factors related to heart and blood vessel health,h explains lead author, professor Zhen-Yu Chen, reports Science Daily.


Not surprising. I've read extensively about cayenne pepper, which I've used myself numerous times...the capsaicin in it is the active constituent which provides its healthful properties.

Then a Scotch Bonnet must be a cure for everything. Beaten

That's only because you might live through it. Not so with the pepper.

I'm with you. I've never tried a Scotch Bonnet. That's probably a good thing.

Love this Japanese Doctor!
Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: Oh no. Wine made from fruit. Fruit very good. Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Grain good too. Bottom up!

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of one, sorry. My philosophy: No pain...good!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU NOT LISTENING! Food fried in vegetable oil. How getting more vegetable be bad?

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: You crazy?!? HEL-LO-O!! Cocoa bean! Another vegetable! It best feel-good food around!

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming good for figure, explain whale to me.

Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is shape!

Well... I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And remember:

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

AND......

For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.
5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Hmm, I'm leaving for Great Britain this Friday. So I should: A) review my CPR training cuz there's a good chance I'll need it; B) remain mute the whole time I'm there; C) frequent only Japanese, Mexican, Chinese, Italian, and German restaurants--no fish and chips or Beef Wellington. Cry

I recommend a visit to the Borough Market near London Bridge Station. It's London's outdoor wholesale food market that is open to tourists and Londoners alike on certain days.

I highly recommend the chorizo roll sandwich sold by Brindisa. It's a chorizo sausage with roasted piquillo peppers on a ciabatta roll dressed with olive oil. One of the most memorable sandwiches I've ever eaten anywhere.
