    Rich told me recently that I was going to need a "stomach replacement by the time I reach an older age"... A comment/joke that has stuck with me.

    Through the years I've noticed that my tastes for peppers dumbfound my friends and family. I remember starting out enjoying the "hot" Pace Picante sauce that I had amped up a little bit with crushed red pepper and cayenne, now, some 18 years later, I "need" habanero in just about everything, including my ketchup for fries and have recently started looking for hotter peppers such as the ghost pepper. I know that in some countries the children start out eating these habanero peppers at a young age, which would indicate that they are okay???

    I have read that consuming peppers regularly boost your immune system and good things like that, but I am concerned about how they may effect the body in large doses, long term...

    Any insight?

    Art, I love Johnny Cash!

    In fact this song is one that I have considered for a WMM video that I want to do with a mixture of footage from BBQ cookouts and good friends, but I think I am leaning more towards Fire Lake from Seger. :)

    The approach I would take is to eat the peppers if you like them and if the body starts telling you to slow down then I would. There is a lot that people don't know about the body and the hot pepper cravings may be for a reason.

    The hot that's in different peppers is the same stuff. You get more of it in habaneros than jalapenos. Habaneros are right at the top of the list for hot. If there's anything hotter it just has a little more of the hot in it.

    After eating hot stuff your senses are dulled down & you don't notice the hotness as much.

    There is an area in Mexico where the people eat nothing but habaneros made into a paste & then spread on bread. It's common for them to die as young as 35 when their stomachs burn thru & they bleed out.

    Sounds like fun:)

    I am like you Crpdeth, I have built up my tolerance for all things hot through the years- however, I knew I liked it hot at an early age (thank you tabasco sauce)

    Habenaros are hot... There's also a thin little chili I used to eat with some Lao friends that would "slap your pappy". I've heard the Scotch Bonnett along with the Ghost Pepper in India are proported to be the hottest.

    As for excess, too much of anything can become a poison to the body... even water. I will continue to consume all things hot, as much as I like without worry. :D :D

    According to the section titled "Peppers and Health" in the following link, you're probably safe.

    This had me thinking. I love hot stuff and have found a GREAT product called Acid Rain.

    Not only is it *censored* hot, but the flavor is right up there with the best I have ever tried.

    Check out these Ingredients: Habanero, Piquin, Ring Of Fire, Peri-Peri, Tepin and JalapeƱo peppers, garlic, ginger, spices, salt, lemon, lime and orange juices and vinegar.

    Yummy drool good stuff.
