According to a study, which looked at the diet of 600,000 people from different countries, peppers eaters live longer than others.

Another study confirms the beneficial effect of broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts on blood vessels.

The health consultant of Europe 1, Jimmy Mohamed, explains to you about Europe 1. 

How to stay in shape in a complicated time when everyone is trying to take care of their health?

Diet and nutrition can help.

According to two studies, regular eaters of chili and different varieties of cabbage are healthier, thanks to the properties present in these different vegetables.

Chilli is good for the heart, cabbages for the blood vessels.

Doctor Jimmy Mohamed, health consultant of Europe 1, deciphers these two studies this Friday. 

"We generally know that chili pepper contains a molecule, capsaicin, responsible for the burning sensation. And we have known for a long time that it is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory molecule. In this study, which was interested in feeding 600,000 Americans, Chinese, Italians and Iranians, it was found that regular chilli consumers had a 26% lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. They would also die less from cancer and die, d 'in general, less than the others.

So the pepper would be protective.

Be careful, we do not know exactly how it works, or how much to eat chili pepper.

Overeating hot peppers can cause hemorrhoids, so it should not be overused.

Broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, good for the heart 

Another study also looked at eaters of broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.

These three vegetables are said to be good for the blood vessels.

It has been found that those who consume 45 grams per day of these vegetables, or the equivalent of a quarter of a cup, have less calcium deposition than others in their blood vessels, especially the larger one, l 'aorta.

While calcium is a good substance for the bone, it is on the other hand very bad for the blood vessels, since it is associated with a risk of heart attack.

These vegetables are therefore protective of the heart.

Generally speaking, food and nutrition are accessible to all and are perhaps the best way to stay healthy and avoid getting sick. "
