..just wondrin?...despite of mexico being a humid place yet they tend to eat spicy foods and as you can see the effect of eating spicy food it makes our body temperature rise making us sweat a lot...same through in some places in africa which is one of the hottest place in the globe is one of the country eating spicy dishes..why do you think so?

Sweating is the body's way of cooling off, and it's really good for you when you're in hot conditions. So if you're eating a food that makes you sweat, it'll actually cool you off in the long run. That's why in places like Africa, Jamaica and Mexico, where it's very hot, spicy foods are most prevalent.

Maybe it is because they grew up eating this food and they are used to it. And they have a lot of good food there! Yummy I am hungry now!!!!

I think Mexica has some really spicy peppers. And therefore they like to have spicy food. Spicy is an interesting feeling. Once you love it, you can resist not it. I love China

Maybe it is what they are accustomed to love.. They grew up eating these type of foods. And this what they are so used too. If they lived here in Mexico or where they serve foods such as this. They will want it to eat. Spicy foods are delicious.. I love it, but I dislike too spicy foods. It makes it hard to enjoy what I am eating.
