Chili peppers are so versatile. They can spice up any dish and add color as well. There’s also increasing evidence that hot chili peppers have strong medicinal properties, something modern scientific researchers are just beginning to explore.
One bit of widely publicized research was the result of a large study, which appeared in the British Medical Journal. It found that high consumption of hot, spicy foods was associated with a lowered mortality rate, and a reduced incidence of cancer and heart disease.
Even if you aren’t eating peppers for health reasons, there’s no arguing that they do add zest to your food.
