I've got an important issue, and I need the help of The Pit.

A couple of my friends have recently been debating about who has the stronger taste buds (or something to that extent), and today they agreed to settle it with a jalapeno eating contest. They charged me with finding out if this stuff was potentially dangerous (eating a ton of jalapenos). I did some research and found that you can overdose on capsaicin, the chemical that gives peppers their spiciness. But, it said that the low concentration of capsaicin paired with the amount it takes to kill someone is "negligible". Some studies showed gastric bleeding in patients who consumed peppers, and others showed no results.

My question is this:
Does anybody know of any health risks associated with consuming a lot of jalapeno peppers?

I wouldn't be shocked if this turns out to be a terrible idea; these are some pretty weird friends.

Thanks in advance

Jalapeños are for sissies. They should start with a bunch of Habaneros.

Unless they're going to be eating jars and jars of it, then I'd say it's relatively safe. They might throw up, but that's to be expected. Besides, jalapenos aren't that hot

You haven't lived until you've eaten a dehydrated habanero chilli.

Jalapeños are way too mild.

Go with habeneros or other really spicy stuff like that.

The acids in the peppers could give you a stomach ulcer if you eat too many.

My advice: DONT.

Better yet, try my amazing concoction:

Yeah lol, or get some of this stuff called Da Bomb...hottest stuff I have ever tried. I dipped the very corner of a tostito into it and my whole mouth and throat burned for like an hour
Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why mankind is.
