    It is interesting that the chili eaters had behaviors that are not considered conducive to good health, smoking , alcohol, meat and had lower HDL. However they tended to be younger which might have biased the study since younger people are expected to live longer than old people.

    Having more chill also makes you live longer.

    It is chili peppers not chili that was studied. Also Mexican Americans composed 58% of the chili consumers versus 17% for the non consumers. I didn't see any attempt to address this difference in the two populations that where studied.

    That's good news for me. :smile:

    I buy my Tabasco sauce in bulk. (Not to mention the Sriracha and Valentina's). I go through a lot of hot sauce.

    For more bang for your buck seek out sauces with scotch bonnet peppers (Caribbean) or ghost peppers(India) Ghost peppers are reportedly 400 time hotter than regular chili's.
