the world' s hottest peppers
In 1912. a scientist named Wilbur Scoville came up with the hast
for measuring pepper hotness/ spiciness/ piquancy.
Presumably, before the Scoville test, pepper heat was
measured through more subjective methods:

anyone stupid enough to actually eat peppers:

Peppers of all kinds are also healthy, physically and mentally. They do, in fact,help with depression, they help wake you up way better than coffee or energy drinks(this one is obvious), they are helpful in losing weight. don't ask me how, I just went to a website where someone did some research on them.
