I love eating hot peppers- sometimes even half a jar in one sitting. Some people tell me that it is unhealthy and dangerous for the stomach. Is this true or made up??December 16, 2008 5:43 am at 5:43 am #628306
i’ve heard that it could burn a hole in the lining of your stomach! at least the very hot ones!December 16, 2008 5:52 am at 5:52 am #628307asdfghjklParticipant
Hot Peppers as in jalepenos or the yellow spicy pepper rings in a jar??December 16, 2008 6:13 am at 6:13 am #628308
xerox – keep it up. i just checked them out. seems like they’re high in antioxidants, prevent strokes and heart attacks and also prevent cancer from spreading! from what i read, there is no proof that hot peppers cause ulcers. enjoy!December 16, 2008 7:16 am at 7:16 am #628309
yenta: I’ve heard that also, but is it true? What exactly does it do to the stomach?? what’s the science behind it???

I *heard* they actually speed up your metabolism but I have no idea.
I love eating them too! My favorite are the spicy picled ones from Israeli restaurants.December 16, 2008 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #628311Mrs. BeautifulMember
Too much of anything is not good, try sour pickles…December 16, 2008 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #628312JosephParticipant
Perhaps ”Dr. Pepper” knows a thing or two about this.December 16, 2008 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #628313myshadowMember
My father is always claiming that they are gona give me ulcers but dunno if that’s true! They’re heaven!!!December 16, 2008 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #628314shindyMember
Wonder what will happen if you put it in the choulent…December 16, 2008 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm #628315
they probably lose whatever they have. like putting alcohol in chulent. that’s what i’m imagining.December 16, 2008 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #628316myshadowMember
They taste great though on the side with cholent!December 17, 2008 2:17 am at 2:17 am #628317asdfghjklParticipant
xerox: lol they do taste different!!!!December 17, 2008 2:58 am at 2:58 am #628318yankdownunderMember
I do not know about all hot peppers, Cayenne(or hot red pepper) is fantastic and quite tasty. Add Turmeric and Curry and you have Winter Indian choulent that may just keep the immune system in tact.December 17, 2008 5:14 am at 5:14 am #628319
Yankdownunder- I recently started putting in cayenne pepper. It’s been a big hit!December 17, 2008 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm #628320Mrs. BeautifulMember
Esther1, u have to know exactly how much to put, that’s a very strong spice!!December 17, 2008 3:36 pm at 3:36 pm #628321
Anyone here have Charif???
I looove it. With Falafel and Chumus…December 17, 2008 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #628322
Mrs. B- I put in a very tiny bit. Otherwise….December 17, 2008 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #628323
xerox: the lining in your stomach is to protect the sides of your stomach, by eating very hot peppers you are making a whole in it. either from the spiciness of it or maybe it as acids in it or something! sorry i don’t really know much info. on this topic! maybe just take it easy with the hot stuff though 😉December 18, 2008 12:09 am at 12:09 am #628324
You for real yenta101?
Is that an end to my charrif and chumus? SNIFF SNIFF… :-(((((((December 18, 2008 1:36 am at 1:36 am #628325

PLEASE tell me you’re not serious, noitallmr! how old are you? 85????December 21, 2008 12:59 am at 12:59 am #628335
My kids teach me these things from texting. JK = just kiddingDecember 21, 2008 1:03 am at 1:03 am #628336
so im still in the middle of researching..so far i’ve seen/heard that it could be dangerous for your stomach lining for the previous reason i stated! some also say that its good for you and can reduce the chances of stroke and hearts attack. as well, some say that it actually strengthens your stomach lining! but im still looking up so ill let you know more soon!December 21, 2008 1:17 am at 1:17 am #628337
85??? Do I sound that young? Not gonna reveal my age but I remember when the Dead Sea was very sick.
Kidding I’m pretty young actually but never quite got the hand of all the short-hand texting (mostly used by girls actually…)December 21, 2008 1:49 am at 1:49 am #628338
actually my computer’s professor said that part of the curriculum really is to teach all those (even though he skipped it.) lol, gtg, brb and a zillion more. i kinda think it’s stupid. it’s really no big deal to write the words out normally.December 21, 2008 6:24 am at 6:24 am #628340
but it’s WAY easier and takes WAY faster!!!December 21, 2008 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm #628341
Yeah brooklyn19 for typing on a PC. But for texting by mobile where it costs per text you wanna cut down as much as poss.
By the way, does anyone know what this says? (I know, just wondering whether you do…)
URYY4MEDecember 21, 2008 6:02 pm at 6:02 pm #628342
you are too wise for meDecember 22, 2008 4:10 am at 4:10 am #628343
how about slap?
k, were getting a bit off topic-
yenta- got any updates yet?December 22, 2008 5:08 am at 5:08 am #628344
ok some more facts:
eating them too often produces more stomach acid,too much stomach acid over a period of time will eat away at the lining of the esophagus and stomach as well as the intestines, causing an ulcer.
they also prevent strokes, heart attack and blood clotting (which i mentioned before)!
(causes bleeding(ulcers), reduces blood clotting ..that makes sense right?)
let me know if you want any more info and ill try to get more!
again..having them once in a while is probably okay..just dont have too many, too often!December 22, 2008 5:25 am at 5:25 am #628345
how much is too often?
and how much is ‘too much’December 22, 2008 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #628346RoshYeshivahMember
I heard they are good for a cold any backup on that?December 22, 2008 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #628347KeepinEntertainedMember
so do hot peppers help speed up your metabolism thus helpin loose weight or not? doesnt grapeftuits do that?December 22, 2008 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #628348
i think they do and i think grapefruit also cuts your appetite. great for people who love to eat like me :}December 22, 2008 7:41 pm at 7:41 pm #628349qawsMember
Just smelling the hot pepper juice is a great way to clear your nose when you have a cold!December 22, 2008 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #628350
XEROX: I’ll let you be your own judge on how much is too much!! And yes, i heard (but didn’t mention..sorry) that it can speed up ur metabalism!December 23, 2008 6:02 am at 6:02 am #628351
yay!! this sounds like a great diet!!
Eat all the donuts and latkes- then eat a half a jar of hot peppers- and then not gain!!! (maybe even lose?!!!!) :o)December 23, 2008 6:16 am at 6:16 am #628352
try a laxative. it’s easier.December 25, 2008 7:40 am at 7:40 am #628353
brooklyn: what is laxative? some sorta weight loss pill??
that sounds too fishy for me!!
*and it’s more enjoyable to eat my hot peppers then take a pill; if that is what it is?!
