Brain effects of ‘hottest pepper in the world’ put man in hospital

A man was found to have reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome on CT angiogram after experiencing thunderclap headaches after eating a Carolina Reaper,  which is actually the 3rd hottest chili pepper in the world. I definitely wouldn’t eat the actual hottest chili pepper, Pepper X, which is more than 3x spicier than the Carolina Reaper.
