Protect the Package: How Hot Sauce Can Help Prevent Prostate Cancer

Before you freak out, don’t worry, you don’t need to shake hot sauce on your bulge. Capsaicin, the main compound found in chili peppers (the main ingredient in hot sauce) has been found to help prevent prostate cancer.

Your baby-arm is a treasure you need to keep with you for your entire life. Taking care of it also means regular check-ups (it is recommended that men age 50 and over begin having checkups, and for those at higher risk begin screenings at age 40).

Researchers at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles found that capsaicin actually causes cancer cells in the prostate to commit suicide. It’s a shocking percentage - 80% of prostate cancer cells die with a moderate dose of capsaicin.

You can help protect your skin flute by adding a generous dose of chili peppers to your diet which can include jalapenos, chipotle peppers, hot sauce, and chili spices. Researchers saw a difference in studies when given 3-8 peppers per week. The hotter the pepper the higher dose of capsaicin - so give habaneros a try to keep your baloney pony healthy.

In research on cancer cells in mice at UCLA Medical Center, tumors that were treated with capsaicin shrunk to one fifth the size of those of other mice not treated.

Other cancers that capsaicin has also been shown to help kill cancer cells include lung cancer, skin cancer, and breast cancer.
