Fascinating journey to create the world’s hottest pepper. More interesting to me is why some cultures eat such intense foods. It never dawned on me that some cultures will consume spicy foods to promote sweating in order to avoid physical exertion in tropical climates while still using the body’s cooling mechanisms.
