Default Hot pepper kills prostate cancer cells in study

Hot pepper kills prostate cancer cells in study

WASHINGTON, March 15 (Reuters) - Capsaicin, which makes peppers hot, can cause prostate cancer cells to kill themselves, U.S. and Japanese researchers said on Wednesday.

Capsaicin led 80 percent of human prostate cancer cells growing in mice to commit suicide in a process known as apoptosis, the researchers said.

Prostate cancer tumors in mice fed capsaicin were about one-fifth the size of tumors in untreated mice, they reported in the journal Cancer Research.

"Capsaicin had a profound anti-proliferative effect on human prostate cancer cells in culture," said Dr. Soren Lehmann of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the University of California Los Angeles School of Medicine.

"It also dramatically slowed the development of prostate tumors formed by those human cell lines grown in mouse models."

While it is far easier to cure cancer in mice infected with human tumors than it is in human beings, the findings suggest a possible future treatment. They also may offer a good excuse for men who like spicy food to eat more of it.

Lehmann estimated that the mice ate the human equivalent of 400 milligrams of capsaicin three times a week. That is about the amount found in three to eight fresh habanero peppers, depending on how hot the peppers are.

The capsaicin inhibited the activity of NF-kappa beta, a molecular mechanism that helps lead to apoptosis in many cell types.

Prostate cancer is the most common malignant cancer in U.S. men. It is diagnosed in 232,000 men every year and kills up to 30,000 of them. Worldwide, 221,000 men die every year from prostate cancer.

I must say that every now and then we come to hear about things or to be precise the research reports which state that researchers have found a certain thing that is used in the daily life to be a healer against some of the most potential hazardous ailments. But having said that why are not these methods used for the betterment of the patient conditions? As the cases of cancer always seem to be on the rise.

I wonder if mexicans have a lower cancer rate than non pepper eating cultures. They'll probably sell chilli powder in those stupid capsules. I'll pass and take it natural with some frijoles, carnitas, y aroz

So that burning sensation is a good thing....it means that the cancer cells are "killing themselves"? I guess if I was on fire I'd want to kill myself too.

Hi...

"U.S. and Japanese researchers have announced results of a study showing that capsaicin, the chemical that makes peppers hot, can cause prostate cancer cells to kill themselves. 'Capsaicin led 80 percent of human prostate cancer cells growing in mice to commit suicide in a process known as apoptosis, the researchers said.'

When I use to work at a health food store, cayenne was sold in capsules and people bought it to have energy, weight loss, and getting their metabolism up. I think it's also an aphrodisiac which probably explains why I'm such a horny devilish bastard
