Hottest Chili: Food used to combat terrorism

By Peter Chubb - Mar 24, 2010

Who would ever have thought that food would be used to combat terrorism? Coming up with a secret weapon for the Indian army was a tiring process, but experts believe they have found the answer, the bhut jolokia, which is the world’s hottest chilli pepper.

The army believes that the seeds from the chilli pepper can be harnessed and then used in grenades. They will use it in situations such as rioting or to flush out terrorists in small places. The bhut jolokia is said to be a 100 hundred times hotter than the jalapeño pepper.

The Indian army also said that the new weapon could be placed into aerosol sprays – making it ideal for woman to carry with them. It is said that the chilli is powerful enough to stop an elephant charging at you.
