Spicy food and dementia risk?

Recommended Posts

Strange that the study didn't differentiate between fresh, dried, and processed chilis, as well as disregarded capsaicin content of the chili consumed, considering that was their proposed MOA for inhibiting bdnf and neuron survival.

In China, fermented or roasted chili paste in peanut oil is an incredibly popular condiment. My guess would be this kind of processed condiment made up a significant portion of the 50g consumed, so it isn't all that surprising that higher consumption might not be a good thing.  

The higher chili intake was also associated with lower income.

Yep, this may explain a lot.

And your point about the processed and likely very salty condiments makes sense.
