No you won't die but you will start having ulsur ( Severe pain in the stomach) You definitely won't die because of it but but too much of anything is harmful . Hope that was helpful : )

Depending on what sort of peppers are used to make the hot sauce, it can definitely cause blisters if you use too much of it.

A tough question to answer...I have always enjoyed "hot and spicy" foods, the hotter the better. However, as much as I enjoy these foods there are some that I am unable to eat because they cease to be enjoyable. In answer to your question Yes, you can get burns, this from the oils that are contained in various peppers. Click on the link I am sending and it will give you all the information you will ever need on peppers and their "heat" ratings.

No, not at all. She is completely wrong.

How do you logically think that is possible. Your stomach and intestines are full of acid - which is how your food is broken down.

Hot sauce is so mild you could bathe in it compared to acid.

Thank u! I'm shocked sometimes by people jumping in stating a ridiculous opinion like it's a fact! The medical stuff drives me crazy.

I know me too. And it seems to be the tweens or teens who are adamant that they know the answers.

I eat hot, I mean really hot my favorite sauce is 250k scoville units. I find that eating that it burns going in, but not coming out, where eating a mild jalopeno (by my standards mild) it burns more upon exit then it did going in. I cannot ever remember it burning insides at all. Greasy food burns my insides

My family calls me the " fire eater" because if it doesn't hurt it's not food to me! New studies are showing that capsaicin has numerous health benefits including speeding metabolism and and a feeling of being satisfied at mealtime. In extreme quantities of course it can cause gastric problems. Extreme meaning for example : Tabasco sauce has 517 micrograms of capsaicin per teaspoon. The average 150 pound woman can easily take in over 10,000 micrograms in a day for health benefits. So unless you plan on drinking it throughout the day like water you WILL NOT harm your " insides".
