But not everyone can eat this spicy delicacy. Chinese medicine advises that 9 groups of people must not eat chili, otherwise it will cause disease hazards.
Patients with pink eye and keratitis: 22-year-old Xiao Li is a 10th grade student at a university. He returned to campus after school started. He asked his classmates to have supper because they all like spicy food and ordered all spicy dishes. Unexpectedly, the day before yesterday, Xiao Li had hot eyes and swollen eyelids. He went to the hospital for an examination and was diagnosed with pinkeye. After the doctor asked, he said that his illness was related to spicy food.
Experts explained that hot condiments such as peppers will dilate and congest the blood vessels in the eyes, which will reduce the resistance of the eyes and make people susceptible to pinkeye. And in summer should be fasting and spicy, the diet should be light. Therefore, patients with pink eye, keratitis and other symptoms should resolutely put an end to hot pepper during the onset. Because eating chili is easy to get angry, which aggravates the condition.
Patients with hemorrhoids: Although pepper is rich in vitamin C, it can stimulate the taste buds and make people have appetite in the hot summer. However, because peppers still have a lot of irritation, some patients with hemorrhoids are prone to hemorrhoid vein congestion and swelling after eating peppers, which further aggravates hemorrhoids and forms anal abscess. In addition, hot pepper can aggravate constipation and make hemorrhoids heavier. Therefore, patients with hemorrhoids must not eat chili in summer.
Those who take traditional Chinese medicine: The consumption of capsaicin will affect the efficacy of traditional Chinese medicine. Therefore, while taking traditional Chinese medicine, you should not eat spicy food. Those who take traditional Chinese medicine should lighten their diet a little bit. Do not eat hot peppers and all foods that contain stimulating factors, otherwise they will cause recurrence. Due to the stimulation of capsaicin, the secretion of gastric acid increases. Excessive gastric acid can cause gallbladder contraction, biliary sphincter spasm, and difficulty in bile drainage, which can induce cholecystitis, biliary colic and pancreatitis. In addition, patients with such diseases should eat more foods containing crude fiber and avoid irritating foods such as radishes, peppers, onions, etc., otherwise they will be prone to biliary colic and the condition will be more serious.
Patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases: Capsaicin causes a rapid increase in circulating blood volume, rapid heartbeat, and tachycardia. Taking large amounts in a short period of time can cause acute heart failure and even sudden death.
Patients with nephropathy: Capsaicin is excreted through the kidneys, which damages renal parenchymal cells, and can cause changes in renal function and even renal failure.
Pregnant and lying-in women: This kind of people who eat hot peppers will have symptoms such as mouth and tongue sores, dry stools, etc., and they will also get sick from nursing babies.
Patients with hyperthyroidism: Because they have a fast heart rate, the heart rate will be faster after eating, and the symptoms will become more obvious. (Hu Jian)
