Default Question re peppers for Garrett Smith

Garrett--

In your recent article in Performance Menu, you explain how peppers can inhibit healing and exacerbate joint pain. You focus on lab studies in presenting your conclusions. I was left to wonder whether those cultures that rely heavily on peppers in their cuisine (Mexico and India would be two, I believe) have higher incidences of inflammation that those cultures that use peppers less.

Is there any evidence along these lines?

Thanx.

Geez, Tom, you're asking to make me give away next month's PMenu article!

To make a long story short, yes, there is epidemiological evidence in that direction, especially with cancers of various areas of the digestive tract.
