Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book in the Progress in Drug Research series is devoted to a current description of the therapeutic use of capsaicin, the potent vanilloid component of chili peppers, in human illnesses ranging from pain, rhinitis, and gastrointestinal disorders to obesity and cancer. … It is intended to be generally useful to both ‘clinicians and researchers’ in stimulating additional research in this area.” (Kenneth E. McCarson, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2014)
