Chilli-pepper (CP) is well known for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticancer, and blood glucose regulation effects. However, the impact of CP on all-cause and cardiovascular mortality is not clear.

Researchers performed a comprehensive search, screened the studies from inception till January 16, 2020, and reported the outcomes of interest after consumption of CP. The inclusion criteria were: all observational and randomized controlled trials reporting the outcomes of interest, and pediatric, animal studies, letters/case reports, reviews, abstracts, and book chapters were excluded. All-cause mortality was studied as the primary endpoint. Cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and cancer-related deaths were studied as secondary outcomes.

Results:
-- From 4729 studies screened, four studies including 570,762 subjects met the inclusion criteria. Random-effects pooled analysis showed that there was a 25% reduction in the relative risk of all-cause mortality for regular CP consumers, compared to non-consumers.

-- Furthermore, there were a 26% and 23% reduction in the relative risk of death due to cardiovascular causes and cancer, respectively.

-- However, there were no statistically significant differences in cerebrovascular accidents.

Conclusively, in a contemporary meta-analysis of 570,762 subjects, regular CP consumption was associated with a significant reduction in all-cause, cardiovascular, and cancer-related mortalities. Future studies are needed to better understand the potential mechanisms of the mortality benefits of CP consumption.
