  • Is spicy food bad for you?

  • Obviously.

  • Because whenever I eat spicy food, my mouth seems to be on fire.

  • This is because spicy food generally contains chili peppers.

  • Chili peppers have a chemical called capsaicin.

  • When capsaicin comes in contact with our tongue.

  • It activates the heat sensing receptors instead of our taste buds.

  • As a result, our brain thinks that our mouth is on fire.

  • So, shall I call the Fire brigade?
