Spicy Food Linked to Higher Risk of Cognitive Decline

A new study in a Chinese population suggests that there is a link between the high consumption of spicy food, chili peppers in particular, and a higher risk of cognitive decline.Spicy Food Linked to Higher Risk of Cognitive Decline

A team of researchers recruited 4,582 Chinese participants whose age was over 55 years. Having analyzed the participants’ diets and their health, the researchers found that people who regularly ate more than 50 g of chili pepper a day had almost twice higher risk of cognitive decline compared to people who ate less than the aforementioned amount.

Researchers write in their study paper: “In our study, there was a significant difference in chili intake among people with different education levels. Therefore, it is possible that the confounding effect of education may still contribute to the relationship between chili intake and cognitive function.”
