Eating chilli peppers has been linked to a lower risk of suffering a fatal heart attack, scientists say.
They found people who consumed the spicy fruit more than four times a week had a 40 per cent less smaller of dying of a heart attack.
And their mortality risk for all causes was 23 per cent lower, compared with those who did not eat chillies.
