Health Properties of Cayenne Pepper
 
Has anyone read or know of the properties of cayenne pepper in relationship to the human body? I've recently read an article on cayenne pepper. That article made it sound like the pepper could be a real health benefit. I would like to know more about this, is there serious truth to what I've read or is this all marketing hype to sell books? ;?

I think the key word here is "large" quantities. But in controlled quantities the pepper is said to heal stomach ulcers and rebuild damaged tissue in the stomach……that’s what I’ve read at any rate.

mmmmm, those are some nice lookin peppers you got there, Guardian. How long have you had that pepper plant?

I replant new every year, they usually die off @ Nov depending on the frost each year. We always have a variety in the pic are just a few of the plants.

Folks in Central and South America eat more hot pepper than almost anyone else. Stomach and intestinal cancers are virtually non-existent in those heavy pepper eatin' folks.

What I have read and heard is peppers can fight off cancer, you can also get them in vitamin pill form.
