Chilies contain a substance called capsaicin, which you will have heard of before if you read my article called “Habanero peppers – a cure for cancer?”
In that article, a man fed himself on habanero peppers for several days and watched his stage 4 cancer disappear. Whether capsaicin in the habaneros was responsible for his miraculous recovery or not, it has certainly been shown to affect cancer cells in the laboratory. As I was researching this substance, I found an interesting article called “Top 6 Health Benefits of Jalapeno Unveiled”.
That article discusses 6 health benefits of the Jalapeno chili pepper, namely:
- Relief of migraines
- Help with Sinusitis and congestion
- Fight cancer
