I suspect that a poison, capsaicin in chili pepper, is one of the causes of diabetes, especially in combination with a copper deficiency. I have published this in the 2008 Medical Hypotheses 71 p 323-324, entitled “Does capsaicin in chili cause diabetes?”. You may also see some discussion of this in http://charles_w.tripod.com/di abetes.html . So it would be a good idea not to recommend chili in diets until such time as the matter is established on animal experiments, or to use capsaicin as a medicine. It is not impossible that capsaicin causes other problems as well.
Dr. Beale speaks of having a worm that one can do experiments involving diabetes on. Maybe one of your students could use such a technique. His URL is http://www.ttuhsc.edu/som/cbb/faculty/beale.a... .
You may see how to increase copper in the diet in http://charles_w.tripod.com/co pper3.html (chili probably operates synergistically with a copper deficiency).
You also may find a book about potassium nutrition as it relates to heart disease, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure, and diabetes, useful for your library. Its availability through Paypal along with its introduction and table of contents may be accessed in http://charles_w.tripod.com/bo ok.html .
Sincerely, Charles Weber
PS Dr. Rastmanesh, a nutritionist from Iran, would like to secure a position in an English speaking university because of religious or political problems. He has an impressive CV. If you know of an opening I will send you his CV. It would be a travesty to leave that fine scientist in that criminal country after he got rid of rheumatoid arthritis for us.
