Cayenne Pepper and Prostate Cancer – Miracle Prostate Cancer Cure?

At first I wouldn’t believe it myself until I had read it again the second and third times: Hot Pepper Ingredient Kills Prostate Cancer Cells. It did come as a bit of a shock to me, but after reading I sort of calmed down a bit.

You know the thing about cancer cells generally is that they behave so much like human beings that it is hard to understand why we should hate them so much. I suppose the fact that they can be deadly and they interfere with our quality of life is reason enough, though, but really, they are only trying to live forever! Like human beings, cells are born, live the course of their lives, die, and are excreted out of the body through programmed apoptosis. What makes cancer cells so deadly is that they try to evade the apoptotic process and live on forever, changing, mutating, and generally being a pain in the? wherever they happen to be incident. Sound familiar?

Well, the thing about pepper and prostate cancer is that there seems to be some ingredient in hot spice that cause prostate cancer cells specifically to decide on their own to run in for apoptosis! Can you just believe it? “Capsaicin, the pungent alkaloid in jalapeños and other chile peppers that makes them hot, not only puckers the mouth and burns the tongue but also drives prostate cancer cells to kill themselves off!” I read that in the March 15 issue of Cancer Research; perhaps you should seek out the journal and read it too.

This most recent clinical study on this hot peppers and prostate cancer was carried out by a team of researchers from the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, in collaboration with colleagues from UCLA. In their study using mice imbibed with human prostate cancer cells, they found that about 80 percent of prostate cancer cells willingly chose to follow the molecular pathways leading to apoptosis after the administration of capsaicin. Before that, the alkaloid was found to have a more than profound anti-proliferative effect on human prostate cancer cells in culture, which led them to observe that it also slowed the development of other prostate tumors formed by the mutating first ones.

Think about it for a minute: you have an Alexander the Great or a Napoleon grandly ravaging the entire world with their desire to rule and live forever. But one day, they happen to come across something that disagreed with them enough to cause them to walk the normal path of mortal men. That for me is what was so funny about it.

There are loads of prostate cancer treatments, all of which have specific stages of carcinoma in which they are most effective and applicable. However, they do have their shortcomings, especially when they are forced to come up against some very aggressive forms of prostate malignancy; and this is what has caused for so much research to continue in the search for the final word on prostate cancer cure. Today, they are at least closer to finding the answer to that age old question of whether there really is a cure for prostate cancer. By the time the final result come in, we all will know.

In the meantime, you might want to stock your fridge with as much pepper as you can, with a specific focus on habaneras. They are the highest rated pepper for capsaicin content with a Scoville count of up to 300,000 units. Native to the Yucatan, they can’t be that hard to come up with. I daresay if they have a therapeutic value on prostate cancer, they will also work well as a preventive measure. As I conclude this article I am sure you now know better about use of hot peppers to treat prostate cancer and even the particular point above about how hot pepper kills prostate cancer cells in study.
