Capsaicin causes apoptosis of prostate cancer cells

  1. Capsaicin causes apoptosis of prostate cancer cells


    Linky

    I thought this was interesting:

    "Capsaicin reduced the amount of androgen receptor that the tumor cells produced"

    I wonder if it has the same effect on muscle cells, or just tumor cells?


  2. Who is the poor bastard that had to get cap in the ass...holy ouch.

  3. Lol, that would hurt like a ***** no doubt, but if you read the article you'll find that the capsaicin was given orally.
