RESPONSE 4 Response 3: Kaley Smith Fantastic post. I agree with you that spicy foods can be a great way to make a dish more exciting and complex. Additionally, it is quite amazing that there are countless ways to incorporate spice into meals, as indicated in your post, such as crushed red pepper. Moreover, it is very accurate that some people love the great awakening that spices can bring forth to one's senses. On the other hand, you have indicated that others are much more reluctant to indulge out of fear of an inextinguishable taste bud inferno, which is correct. I also agree that many try to consume a glass full of ice-cold water, hoping to alleviate the burning sensation, which does not always work. You have further indicated an excellent explanation of the reason behind the spicy sensation in mucous membranes. Water being a polar molecule, does not dissolve in non-polar capsaicin, which is a chemical compound found within the class found in chili peppers. Therefore, you are right that water does not do an overall great job of relieving the discomfort.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
