"Cardiovascular disease continues to generate a considerable burden on population in terms of illness and disability and the development of improved methods for prevention and treatment are essential," she added.

Ahuja said that the components in chillies responsible for conferring this protection were capsaicin and dihydrocapsaicin and that these had the potential to replace aspirin in the near future, "Aspirin... has a nasty side effect, which causes stomach bleeding in patients,"he added.
