It Kills Surgical Pain and Cancer? Now That's Hot!

You might have seen the news about hot peppers eliminating surgical pain for three days. The surgeons are thrilled by it because unlike pharmaceutical pain killers, the peppers aren't addictive...well, Pace's picante (a.k.a. salsa) sauce can be addictive, but that's another story.

Another benefit not mentioned in the article is that pain killers are notorious for causing constipation - something you want to avoid when you've got stitches in you.

But the story about peppers doesn't stop there.

Nineteen months ago previous news about hot peppers from UCLA's Cedars Sinai disappeared quickly. Researchers there were able to shrink prostate tumors 80% with the active ingredient from hot peppers, namely capsaicin. That truly startling story vanished, however.

If an expensive drug had accomplished such a feat, we'd sill be hearing about it. But you can buy enough peppers to cure cancer for a roll of dimes or less. Maybe the hot pepper lobby isn't big enough.

The results at UCLA didn't surprise me. About nine years ago, I used hot peppers along with a couple other cheap ingredients to wipe out my own Stage 4 cancer.

That's why I say cancer is easy to cure. It really is.
