The Kidney and Bladder are considered an organ pair associated with the salty flavor. The Liver and Gallbladder are an organ pair associated with the sour flavor. Lastly, the Heart and Small Intestine are an organ pair associated with the bitter flavor. These associations were made by ancient physicians who observed a relationship between certain foods and specific organs.

This is how they concluded that spicy foods have an effect on the Lungs. While this may seem like an unconventional concept, it reflects the observations made by ancient Chinese physicians regarding the impact of food on the physical organs of the body.
