Experts reveal the extra-hot sauces that could trigger a heart attack...as teen dies after eating super spicy tortilla chip
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/us/index.html

The super spicy condiments in your kitchen cupboard could cause agonizing ulcers and stomach ruptures — as well as potentially fatal heart attacks, experts have told DailyMail.com.

Doctors say that, for those who are vulnerable, some extra hot sauces on grocery store shelves contain dangerous levels of capsaicin, the chilli pepper extract that causes the heat.

For people with an enlarged heart and congenital heart defects, it can be 'like putting a bomb in your stomach,' according to Dr Allan Capin, an urgent care physician at the Cleveland Clinic.

At high levels, doctors told DailyMail.com that capsaicin causes an intense pain response that constricts blood vessels, raises blood pressure, and increases heart rate. This leads the heart to strain and can result in a heart attack.

The warnings follow the shock death of Massachusetts teenager Harris Wolobah, 14, who suffered a fatal heart attack after eating the alleged spiciest chip in the world, as part of a social media challenge.

An investigation found that the 10th grader suffered an underlying heart condition that was exacerbated by the large dose of capsaicin.

The chip responsible, from snack brand Paqui, has since been pulled from shelves.

Experts noted that while it's rare to die from high levels of capsaicin, it's not impossible. Now, they have warned that other products available to buy could have a similarly disasterous effect.

In addition to Paqui's chip, several brands of hot sauce containing capsaicin have marketed themselves as the 'hottest in the world,' which could spell trouble for those with heart issues.

The Last Dab Xperience, which is available to buy at Walmart and the most extreme sauce on popular YouTube show Hot Ones, is made with Pepper X, which the Guinness Book of World Records has deemed the officially the world's hottest.

It scores nearly 2.7million on the Scoville scale and more than 90 percent of its ingredients include dried, fresh, or distilled Pepper X.

And a hot sauce called The End: Flatline, available on Amazon, showcases a flatlining EKG with the discription: 'This is a warning, and a real warning, not like some of the funny, we-only-sorta-mean-it warnings on our other hot sauces: This is our hottest hot sauce.

And Pepper Palace's Hottest Sauce in the Universe - 2nd Dimension boats over 40 pounds of ghost peppers in each batch.

'It combines some of the fiery-est peppers in the world for a blazing, tongue-torching flavor that will burn everything from your tastebuds to your britches. If you’re ready to completely flatline, then this extreme-hot sauce made with reapers, pepper extract, ghost peppers, scorpion peppers, and 7 pot chocolate douglah peppers is for you.'

Experts say it's hard to quantify how much spice is too much, but taking it slow or steering clear of spices labelled 'hottest in the world' is key.

The autopsy for Harris, who died in September 2023, revealed that was born with cardiomegaly, or an enlarged heart, and a congenital defect called a myocardial bridge which affects blood flow to the organ.

Dr James Udelson, chief of cardiology at Tufts Medical Center, told AP that if someone has 'significant stimulation of the heart,' for example, after eating very spicy food, the myocardial bridge could result in abnormal blood flow and irregular heartbeats.

'There have been reports of acute toxicity with capsaicin causing ischemia of the heart muscles,' he added.

I got a bottle of "Carolina Reaper Throat Punch" on my dining room table.
Have some just about every day.
Yeah, it's hot
>>
How did the kid die from eating a chip? Did he choke?
>>
>>1296197
Sickle cell got him.
>>
>>1296197
he probably died from the stress, since the cause was a heart attack

Black people can't handle spicy foods. They believe Lawry's is spicy.
>>
>>1296223
Lawry's IS spicy, by the very definition of spicy, you fucking dumbass.
>>
>>1296229
It's literally salt with a pinch of seasoning.
That's not spicy at all.
>>
>>1296229
he's being retarded on purpose. don't forget where we are
>>
>>1296229
>>1296234
>Euros being European
How many of you faggots hang out on this board? And why don't you fuck off to a European website?
>>
>>1296234
To be fair, many people are retarded as a baseline.
Its our own fault for allowing spicy to be used to describe the pretense of spice and also the presence of capsicum.
>>
>>1296237
hahaha, no, you are just an ignorant fool.
Example: you probably think spiced tea is a habanero infusion.
Is it too much to ask that you do a quick search to see if your understanding of a topic is narrow? Just 5 minutes would have saved you the embarrassment.
>>
>>1296238
In English, it's called a "connotation".
Retards wouldn't know. A retard would think that the word means what it means and that the association linked to the word is unimportant.
That's how everyone knows you're Euros or Hundus.
>>
>>1296237
I liked it better when Commies were your go-to strawman and not Euros.
>>
>>1296241
"Spiced" in English, usually denotes a sweet or savory flavor.
Paired with the word "Tea" making it "spiced tea" one would be led to believe it was somewhat sweet and not spicy hot.
>>
>>1296243
In English, it's called "reading between the lines", you moron.
Do you need everything to be spelled out for you?
>>
>>1296244
Same fucking thing.
>>
>>1296246
Well, that's a euphemism for a "connotation".
>>
>>1296245
True, but you need to take a few extra seconds and consider the larger picture.
Take "wow, that is spicey!".
Is it HOT?
Does is just contain a lot of other spice?
As the moron >>1296243 tried to point out about context sometimes the context doesn't give you enough to say definitively HOT or simply spices.
Perhaps >>1296223 truly does believe that Lawry is considered HOT by and entire group of people. It is just lots of salt with paprika and not even actual hot paprika.
>>
>>1296247
According to whom?
>>
>>1296245
not if you exclusively use "spicey" in reference to capsicum, and several posts appear to do just that.
>>
>>1296254
hell, similar with saying something is "hot".
Eating it too soon out of the oven or too many ghost peppers? Maybe both?
>>
>>1296252
>As the moron >>1296243 tried to point out about context sometimes the context doesn't give you enough to say definitively HOT or simply spices.
It does if you're a native English speaker.
>>
>>1296257
That's actually why most people use "spicy" to denote a hot taste, and "hot" to speak to excessively warm food.
>>
>>1296267
Addendum, unless the name of the food is also mentioned.
For instance, "hot wings", "hot fries", "hot chips", etc. would be spicy hot.
>>
>>1296267
>most people
pull that out of your ass I see.
>>
>>1296267
foreknowledge also helps.
If you know a food is loaded with chilis you have additional context.
Don't know how it is spiced? spicy/hot can go many ways.
Perhaps this is just another example of regional differences.
>>
>>1296272
Well, not Indian ESLs. Sorry if that hurts your feelings, Gupta.
>>
>>1296275
No. You're a faggot.
>>
>>1296271
Yeah, that does help.
Where I work we are have a great variety of ethnic diversity so a few times a year we get to experience differences in language understanding that lead to unexpected expectations.
>>
>>1296276
I wouldn't have thought that Lawry's is a thing for Indians. How large is your sample set?
>>
>>1296277
No, you just need to go out and be with people in situations where the differences in expressions arise.
>>
>>1296279
300 million or so.
>>
>>1296283
Good for Lawry's!
>>
>>1296139
VAXX STATUS?
>>
>>1296329
BLAXXED OUTTA MY MIND!!!
6 MILLION BOOSTERS!!!
NO HEALTH PROBLEMS (aside from the heart issues and cancer)!!!!
>>
Black people like seasoned food, but they don't like spicy food.
The only group of people who truly appreciates spicy food is Asians.
>>
>>1296544
They only prefer spice because they eat literal shit and piss, at least the "Asians" you're talking about anyway.
(FYI that's how we know you're a eurofag)
>>
>>1296549
No. I mean East Asian. I refer to brown "Asians" as south Asian or Middle Eastern.
Nice try though.
>>
>>1296550
>I refer to brown "Asians" as south Asian
Speaking of nice try.
>>
>>1296139
>14
>10th grader
that means he skipped a grade. Must have been a smart kid.
>>
>>1296253
Smarter people than you.
