Maybe they should stop calling battery acid a "spice".

This isn't the first time this has happened to a customer. Why hasn't anyone gone down and shut that restaurant down or at least told them that they couldn't sell that soup anymore?

This was in China -- shiat works a little differently than America.

That really is an annoying misconception. Eating pure capsaicin, while being phenomenally painful, wouldn't be actually harmful at all.

"Interestingly enough, the hospital the victim arrived at reported roughly 15% gastrointestinal cases are said to result from hot pot-related incidents. Scary stuff."

When you have a society with, what, 20% too-few chicks, this is what men do to numb the pain of existence. They eat the most masochistic crap imaginable. This particular schlub may not have ever had an ulcer before, but he was no doubt 90% of the way there before this atom bomb.

Its not the substance itself but your bodies reaction to it that causes the problems. A bee sting technically won't kill you either either, but you're farked if you have an anaphylactic reaction to it.

There are more than one capsaicinoids. Individuals (mammals) can react differently to them.

Though to blame a single meal on a stomach hole can most likely be disregarded

Yes, but your body reacts in known ways, consistently with everyone else. You may not react exactly like the guy next to you, but there's only a few gastric reactions a body can have. You are not a special snowflake. Your body does not react in new and unique ways.  It doesn't matter if you obsess about fast food, gluten, dairy, greasy food, or spicy food, there's just only so many reactions. No person has ever gotten an ulcer from a perfectly healthy stomach from a single meal. People just have a real problem with cause and effect.

Always get a second opinion.

My dad and my uncle both got told that they had diabetes (they had different doctors).

My dad's doctor told him that he would lose his eyesight because of the disease and after seeing other doctors and further tests, it turns out that they didn't have diabetes.

Some doctors are clueless.

i spent a couple of months in Shanghai earlier this year.  I noticed A LOT of knock of products.

I asked a local (friend of a friend who guided me around) why there wasn't a crack down on such products.

She answered "Everyone knows they are knock-offs"

I asked "but, what if they don't"

She said "You are expected to know because they are so cheap -- you can't buy a Rolex for $1000 RMB"

This opened my eyes to China's version of personal responsibility.

FTFA: "made using "a combination of chili pepper and a special spice, "Sichuan pepper", known to cause a numbing sensation in the mouth."

Note: The author's description is more than a wee bit misleading. Sichuan pepper corn has basically no heat, just a flavor I'd describe as floral (Wikipedia calls it lemony), and a very slight tingling sensation (and when I say slight, I've had it dozens of times in restaurants and at home, and have a bag of Sichuan pepper corns in the kitchen as we speak, but I'd never actually noticed the tingling.)

Had five spice powder? Or more than a few Chinese, Indonesian, Korean, Nepali, Tibetan, or Bhutanese dishes? Chances are you've had Sichuan pepper corns, and never even knew.

I worked at a very popular Chinese place as a teen and one night they got busted/raided. They had skinned dogs and cats in the walk-in freezer. True story this was in California on the Coast, made me glad they were cheap and would only allow us to have white rice for free.
They tried to say they were not feeding the public the dog and cats that it was for special customers, ya right and also this fairly small town had a large problem with missing animals that stopped after they got caught, not making this shiat up!

You removed my supporting line to your statement out of quote:
Though to blame a single meal on a stomach hole can most likely be disregarded-

But to respond, I've seen grown men jump in rivers, crying over a drop of the stuff I eat on a daily basis. That's not reaction-differential enough?

Reminds me of my secret habanero hot sauce recipe:

-chop copious amounts of these peppers
-enough fine olive oil to cover the chopped mound twice over
-citrus peel -to taste
-garlic -to taste

You're basically doing an oil infuse here. VERY low heat for a good part of the day. Don't try to seal afterwards cuz it'll blow the top off your tupperware. You'll see bubbles coming out. Just let 'em go man...
Very high in Vitamin C.
Use like a salsa.

Well, not from a single meal spiced with capsaicin. But you probably could if you slipped in a bit of properly encapsulated metallic sodium...

But yeah, unless something else is in the food (and it's China, not exactly noted for its food purity law enforcement) this guy's lying.

TofuTheAlmighty: That really is an annoying misconception. Eating pure capsaicin, while being phenomenally painful, wouldn't be actually harmful at all.


While capsaicin itself does not cause a chemical burn, it triggers an inflammatory response that can cause cell damage if it is severe enough. So if you were to chug a strong enough solution of it, you certainly could trigger an inflammatory response that was strong enough to perf your stomach. Likely? No. Possible. Sure.

Grown up here by Mexico, I've been heating hot hot peppers all of my 30 year life.
My momma always told me to cut back on them because my stomach would give out. I did not consider this.
Today I have haital hernia and must use nexium daily -Found this out after seeing a cardiologist about my heart. Had NO idea my chest could palpitate over acid reflux. I also had a strange cough in the morning particularly after drinking coffee that NO doctor could figure out the cause of.
Acid builds up in stomach so far up esophagus where tissues aren't as tough and causes your pipes to turn inside out!

The brewery down the street from me has used them in a saison. I don't have a hole in my stomach.

It's a cultural thing. Hot Pot is a very traditional food in Szechuan/Chonqing.

More than one customer of McDonald's/Krispy Kreme has died from diabetes and arteriosclerosis. Why haven't they been shut down yet?

It isn't. Most likely scenario: Guy has ulcer he is unaware of and then proceeds to eat super spicy stuff.
When the chili hits the ulcer...surprise!
So in other words, this story is bullshiat.

Either you are a mutant or have never eaten anything close to authentic Szechuan.

The heat in Sichuan food is largely from various chili peppers, not from the Sichuan peppercorns.
