    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?

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