    Why Do People Eat Hot Peppers?

    Chili peppers and black pepper will give you a piquant sensation if you eat them. Piquant sensation is not a flavor or a taste but a sense of pain. Why do people like eating hot and spicy food?  Why do people eat hot peppers that actually mask the actual taste of food?

    Oh, there's a lot more to this...  Chili Heads and/or hot pepper fanatics often get a mild euphoria from eating 'em, and many folks believe that this can cause them to be somewhat addictive.  I went through my hot pepper craze a few years ago, but I still eat them fairly often.  To me, unless it totally takes away from the food you are eating it with, it's all good from mild to hot.  I wrote a web page on another site that was similar to this subject, a couple years ago. 
    Also, there are many health benefits from eating those little devils, as well.
