No news – eating spicy food makes you live longer

So they’ve studied 1/2 million Chinese people and discovered that those who ate spicy food several times a week had a 14% reduced risk of dying over those who only ate it once per week or less.

Ever wanted to try French curry? Rendez-vous at the pharmacy!

Then you can find cosmetics, toiletries and, if you’re lucky, French curry! Now, if you’ve ever been to France maybe you’re familiar with Brittany, the western region famous for its rain, wind, fishing boats, crepes and...
