Q: Dear Dave,
I love jalapenos but they don’t love me. When I eat jalapenos, they really burn the next day (if you know what I mean). Yet I can eat tons of Thai food or habaneros and it doesn’t seem to bother me that much.
A: Hello JP:
Raw green jalapenos make me gag, but other chiles don’t. I think such reactions as that, and the one you have, are akin to allergies in the sense that some people are more sensitive to certain substances than others. The human body is a strange and miraculous thing.
