"For those hardy souls who grow and eat hot peppers, the latest advice on how to cool a blazing
mouth is to eat foods that absorb the heat.
Because the heat in peppers is produced by capsaicins, which are oils, water does not put out
the fire. Instead, eat foods that dissolve or absorb the oils such as avocado, banana, bread,
pasta, or potato. Drinking a glass of milk also helps."
