Eat Peppers, Live Longer?

Eating hot chili peppers may help you live longer.

A new analysis, in PLoS One, corroborates findings from an earlier study of spicy food that was conducted in China and published in 2015.

The new report used data on 16,179 American men and women participating in a larger public health study.
