Why you should drink milk when you eat something spicy

I have always ask a lot of whys and was never satisfied with “because everyone said so” or “it has been this way for a long time”. I found that many people, even experts know the hows but not necessarily the whys. Perhaps that’s why I like to read. Books provides answers nobody around me could give.

Last night, I found out why milk is said to be better than water to ease your throat of the sensation of spiciness when you eat chilli: capsaicin (a chemical found in chili which causes the sensation of burning) is fat soluble.

Thank you, Tim Ferriss!

And God, please send to me more people who don’t find my inquisitive nature annoying. Thank you!
