Even if you’ve never enjoyed hot sauce before, you will learn to love it. It’s good for you. It’s addictive. So, you will get through a full pack of Mad Dog Hot Sauce before you know it. After all, sometimes it’s about the burn, sometimes it’s about the flavor – but most of the time, it’s about both.
If you’re overweight, it’s likely you’ve been racking your brain for ways to speed your weight loss. After all, it’s hard to stay committed to going to the gym every day and cutting down on calories. Unfortunately, there is no silver bullet when it comes to immediate weight loss, but there is something that will truly speed your progress. Hint: it’s in your pantry cupboard.
And now we bring you the seven wonders of the chili world. If these aren’t enough reasons for you to develop a deep love of hot sauce, then nothing but the delicious burn to entice you. And that should be enough. Not sure about that? If you’re feeling truly strong, why not order yourself a bottle of Plutonium 9 Million Scoville Pepper Extract. It’s the 8th wonder of the chili world.
You aren’t likely to find a bottle of Mad Dog hot sauce at your local pharmacy at the moment, but perhaps… one day… you will. That’s because capsaicin, the hotter than Hades compound found in chili peppers, is remarkably good for curing all sorts of ailments. And, actually, capsaicin isn’t hot at all. It’s odorless and tasteless; it’s just that your brain responds to it as though it’s truly burning you in some way. (Don’t worry; it’s not.)
The 2014 statistics released by the New American Cancer Society are frightening. According to their research (and probability metrics), there will be 1,665,540 new diagnoses of cancer in the United States. On top of that, cancer will be the cause of 585,720 deaths in the same time. Let’s be clear; researchers are not exactly sure how capsaicin works to kill cancer cells. If they did, it would already be in use as a treatment for the disease.
Of course, that’s just the beginning of what chilies and capsaicin can do. Clearly they’ve been making headlines since 4000 BC (give or take), though it’s unlikely that the ancient Americans were as worried about heart attacks and prostate cancer. But that’s only because they still had to discover how to make pottery and how to steer clear of poisonous snakes. With all that on their metaphorical plate, we should be infinitely grateful they found time to develop the chili trade.
