#1 Chillies could help beat cancer as research finds capsaicin destroys diseased cells01-02-2017, 11:59 PM
The active ingredient that gives chillies their kick can surround cancer cells and kill them off, scientists say, which could help develop a cure for cancer
Chillies could help fight breast cancer after scientists revealed the spicy ingredient causes diseased cells to self destruct.
Capsaicin, the active component that gives chillies their trademark kick, can switch on specialised channels surrounding cancer cells causing them to die.
Other cancers including colon, bone and pancreatic could also be killed off by the compound.
However, capsaicin isn't effective if it's eaten, inhaled or injected, and researchers think it will only be effective as a pill attached to another drug that targets cancer cells.
Scientists from Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany, treated human samples of breast cancer cells with the hot ingredient to find out more about its ability to destroy them.

Wait until extracts of chile cost $1000 a pill. Big Pharma will take a cheap, natural cure and make a fortune out of it.
