Dementia warning: The 60p ingredient shown to 'double' the risk of memory decline – study


Doctor Walton said at the time: “With global dementia figures rising, understanding risk factors, especially those relevant to large populations like China, is certainly a hot topic to help us develop prevention strategies – something our researchers are working on all the time.

“But there were so many differences between the chilli lovers and abstainers in this study that it doesn’t give any conclusive evidence that eating spicy food will increase your risk of dementia.”

“Further research is needed to confirm a link between chilli and dementia so, for now, there’s no need to avoid the hot sauce.

“This study didn’t assess dementia either – it only looked at memory and math test results.”
