6 million huh? that's pretty tough. A ghost chili is 1-1.5 million and I eat them but they still pack a punch. I'm wondering if he's being hospitalized at this time for him ****ting out his intestines.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now. Dylan

I have a question to those more knowledgable than I...
Does the ingestion of such powerful chili peppers strip the lining of the mouth, throat, stomach and intestines?
Or is it "safe", medically speaking?
I watched a special on this some time ago. They scoped out the esophagus and stomach of people who liked to eat very spicy (hot chili peppers) foods. Their conclusion was that hot peppers don't harm your insides, in fact what they found did, was black pepper!
Simbi, seems to feel otherwise, so maybe there are other studies with contrary findings? I'm sure you can burn your lips, etc though.
I am such a wimp my eyes water just reading the article.

The chief cells in the stomach actually produce an acid to aid in digestion so I don't imagine these foods can top THAT. But the mouth and esophagus aren't protected that way. I don't eat foods this hot because it leaves me unable to taste the food - so what's the point? I'm just a spiceless wimp I guess.
