What Spicy Food Does to Your Body
Eating spicy food every day may exacerbate heartburn
If you don't suffer from any esophageal issues, you can mow down a plate of hot wings every day with wild abandon, should you so desire. But that isn't the case for everyone. Some folks can have an adverse reaction to heat, according to registered dietitian Amanda A. Kostro Miller. "Spicy foods are one of many trigger foods for those with heartburn," she explained to The List. While that can be abated with an antacid or other medications, heartburn isn't exactly pleasant and can even cause long-term damage.
