“The exact defense chili developed to preserve the species is the exact reason they are devoured”

A saying about the heat of chili peppers was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on August 19, 2017:

“Chili peppers must be pretty pissed. The exact defense they developed to preserve the species is the exact reason they are devoured.”


Wikipedia: Chili pepper
The chili pepper (also chile pepper chilli pepper, or simply chilli, from Nahuatl chīlli Nahuatl pronunciation: [ˈt͡ʃiːli]) is the fruit of plants from the genus Capsicum, members of the nightshade family, Solanaceae. They are widely used in many cuisines to add spiciness to dishes. The substances that give chili peppers their intensity when ingested or applied topically are capsaicin and related compounds known as capsaicinoids.

Chili peppers originated in Mexico. After the Columbian Exchange, many cultivars of chili pepper spread across the world, used for both food and traditional medicine.
