Death by Hot Sauce

A warning to every eater out there looking to take the capsaicin challenge to new levels: your chili addiction could be fatal. So says a story out of Britain involving homemade hot sauces and a heart attack. The Daily Mail has the details:

Andrew Lee, 33, had used a bag of home-grown red chillies to make a super-hot sauce. 

The forklift truck driver, who had recently passed a medical at work, dared his girlfriend’s brother to eat a spoonful – then ate a plateful himself. Shortly after he had a heart attack and died.

Mrs Chadbourne added: ‘He apparently got into bed at 2.30am and started scratching all over.’

‘His girlfriend scratched his back until he fell asleep. She woke up and he was dead.’
