“Oof! I shouldn’t have eaten that.

“Ugh. Shouldn’t have eaten that, either!”

Why do we crave foods that make us feel sick? More importantly, why do they make us ill in the first place?

For the past couple of days, I’ve spent hours in severe discomfort after eating too many jalapeño pork cracklin’ snacks. Along with a chorizo that, though very mild, nonetheless burned me in the literal end. As many carnivores already know, this is because plants defend themselves with toxins and irritants. The spicy capsaicin in peppers, the pungent allicin in garlic ― these are there to kill small organisms and, hopefully, also deter larger creatures like us.

But humans actually LIKE the burning sensation, even though that kick is actually the plant fighting you off with a mild dose of death. Only birds are immune to the burn, so they are the animals responsible for spreading that plant’s seeds. Nature has it all worked out! And then we humans do our own weird thing, as usual. This episode is a rant about the consequences of straying too far from Nature ― particularly when it comes to diet!
