As I understand it, bioavailability is the problem. Studies show that Cap does indeed inhibit, even kill, some tumor cells when directly applied. Unfortunately, none/very little of the cap that is making you puke will make it into your bloodstream.
My wild-assed guess is that hot peppers might(?) be useful in directly treating shallow mouth, esophageal, stomach, and maybe intestinal cancers.
As for Puckerbutt, IMO he's full of marketing bullshit and is abusing the basic science by implying that hotter peppers will somehow be more effective.
Cap can easily be synthesized or concentrated from less hot (but more productive) peppers.

As I understand it, bioavailability is the problem.
However, capsaicin isn't effective if it's eaten, inhaled or injected, and researchers think it will only be effective as a pill attached to another drug that targets cancer cells.

Too bad Nigel is not around. He'd have much to say. He once told me that a "cure for cancer" is a misnomer since cancer is not a single thing which would respond to a single cure. He said that cancer is far to complex and varied to think a single cure would ever be found, i.e., not possible. I'm really doing a disservice to how he explained it to me since I'm not a scientist, and he is.

As someone possessed of a rare and inoperable brain tumor, you can imagine I stay up on cancer research.
I appreciate your bravery in sharing this. I value your opinions and just feel thankful when I read pragmatic and measured and analytical observations like yours. Thank you for posting.
