A British doctor has become the first person to finish the world's hottest curry at a UK restaurant - despite suffering hallucinations brought on by the dish.

Consultant radiologist Ian Rothwell, 55, took over an hour to eat 'The Widower' curry - which tops six million units on the Scoville Scale and is hotter than a drink of anti-riot tear gas.

The curry, which is filled with 20 Naga Infinity Chillis - the second hottest on the planet - is so dangerous to make it has to be prepared by chefs wearing goggles and a face mask.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.

I enjoy things as hot as they can possibly get, and I haven't found a wing sauce that's had me beaten, so I believe I would try this. Yum. :yes:

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?

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.

You should try some of my home grown Naga (Ghost Chilli's) I make into a sauce with Pears.  Taste gorgeous but has an after bite that I have yet to find anyone can tolerate.

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.

Posted 07 January 2013 - 12:11 AM

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.
