CHILLI SPICE MAY HELP FIGHT BOWEL CANCER


SIGN OF THE TIMES


DINERS at the Burnley restaurant, Usha, got a warmer welcome than expected when a neon sign on the front of the building went up in flames. Strong winds and rain are said to have entered a new fuse


box causing a short circuit that started the blaze. Fortunately there was no damage to the building and


the fire service arrived in a matter of minutes to stop it from spreading. All diners and staff were safely evacuated and nobody was hurt. Fire crews were able to isolate the electricity before using a hose reel jet and triple extension ladder to gain access and extinguish the fire. n

A CHEMICAL compound found in spicy curries could help reduce the risk of developing bowel cancer, a study has found. Researchers gave capsaicin, which gives chilli peppers their heat, to mice genetically prone to developing multiple tumours in their gastrointestinal tract. The capsaicin triggered a pain receptor in the cells lining their intestines, setting off a reaction that reduced the risk of growing colorectal tumours. Scientists found that the treatment extended the lifespan of the mice by more than 30 per cent.


The study, published in The Journal of


Clinical Investigation, recommended that patients at risk of getting colon or rectal cancers should be given capsaicin as part of their diet to inhibit tumour growth. Bowel cancer is the third most common type of cancer in the UK, with doctors diagnosing an average of 41,000 new cases of the disease every year. n
