Did you know that...

The hotness of a pepper is measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHU) that tell us the amount of capsaicin or heat producing substance found in it.

Capsaicin can and is used as a weapon against humans. 

Capsaicin is also used in topical medications.

You can make organic pepper bug spray with cayenne and habanero peppers.

You should drink milk after having pepper and not water as water just spreads the heat in your mouth/gullet/stomach while milk will cool it down.

The hottest pepper in the world is...

Bhut Jolokia Pepper (1,041,427 SHU)
also called Naga Jolokia, Ghost Pepper, and the California Death Pepper. 

Fact: I have tried it and it rocks! 
And so I dare you to try it.
