Do ALL Roof Cleaners Eat Hot Peppers ?

I LOVE Hot Peppers, just munched 4 Raw Serrano Peppers with lunch.
I have noticed, and this is not scientific, but just about every roof cleaner I have ever helped shared my Love of Hot Peppers.
And so, I  decided to create a poll.

I grew 7 different types of hot peppers in my garden this year. Jalepeno, habanero, poblano, scotch bonnett, cayenne, chili and serrano peppers. I love hot peppers. They are actually very good for you. The New England Journal of Medicine has published some studies on all of the health benifits of hot peppers. It is amazing that something that can burn your a** as much as a scotch bonnett pepper can be healthy for you  confuse

I couldn't find seeds this year for serrano or scotch bonnetts so I bought them in the grocery store and grew plants from the seeds I removed from the pepper itself.

Just ordered a pound organically grown Cayenne, drink it in water, then squat down and clean concrete with a "hot water pressure wash" ,LOL

Seriously, hot peppers are the ticket to health, in many peoples opinions.
I munch raw serranos with almost every meal.

I Don't do Habanero's too well.
I prefer Serrano's, eaten raw.
They really clean you out, if eaten raw.
Hey Mike, did you make the changes yet to the banner you wanted ?
Or, is it OK as is ?
Let me know so I can pay Shawn, ok ?

Did Carolina beat Atlanta ??

I lost my patience with the banner e-mailing back and forth.

I'll try calling Shawn next week to see if he can fix the font the way I would like it to look.

Yes Carolina beat Atlanta, but they just lost to Miami Thursday night! ARRGGGGHH!! LOL!

We're now 4-6 with very tough schedule coming up.

Making the playoffs looks pretty grim.

CAR vs NY Jets
CAR vs Tampa Bay Bucs
CAR vs NE Patriots
CAR vs Minn Vikings
CAR vs NY Giants
CAR vs New Orleans Saints

Mike,
     How did you manage to eat a scotch bonnett pepper by itself? I thought my habaneros were hot before I was introduced to scotch bonnetts in Aruba. They are a food group for native Arubans. I cut up my scotch bonnetts this year to get the seeds so I could plant them. I used a plastic cutting board to cut them on and my wife picked it up to wash it by hand. She washed it and then rubbed her eyes about an hour later and looked just like this  furious.    Needless to say we don't have an emoticon to show how she looked after she went to the bathroom. emote.img?ID=8424 It was not a good night for me  no

Brian

Read this, peppers, especially Cayenne, are good for you!

 
Dr. Patrick Quillin  "Cayenne pepper - prized for thousands of years for its healing power.  Folklore from around the world recounts amazing results using cayenne pepper in simple healing and in baffling health problems. But cayenne pepper is not just a healer from ancient history. 
Recent clinical studies have been conducted on many of the old-time health applications for this miracle herb. Again and again, the therapeutic value of cayenne pepper has been medically validated."

In a recent letter to the editors of the New England Journal of Medicine, three Italian doctors describe how they were able to reduce patients' reported dyspepsia symptoms by more than half -  by prescribing red pepper powder. In a study of 30 patients with  functional dyspepsia, half of the participants received a placebo, while the other half took 2.5 grams of red pepper powder each day (divided into capsules taken before each of three meals). Both groups took their respective treatments for five weeks, and rated their symptoms each day on a scale of zero  to three (higher scores indicated more severe symptoms). By the third week, the red pepper group showed a significant advantage over the control group. And by week five, the pepper group's symptoms had declined 60 percent from their baseline scores - while the control group's scores had only decreased about half as much. The symptom scores included ratings for pain, a feeling of fullness, nausea, and an overall score. The red pepper powder produced significant gains in all four areas.

Many herbalists believe that Cayenne is the most useful and valuable herb in the herb kingdom, not only for the entire digestive system, but also for the heart and circulatory system. It acts as a catalyst and increases the effectiveness of other herbs when used with them.

Cayenne is a medicinal and nutritional herb.  It is a very high source of Vitamins A and C, has the complete B complexes, and is very rich in organic calcium and potassium, which is one of the reasons it is good for the heart.

Digestion

Cayenne can rebuild the tissue in the stomach and the peristaltic action in the intestines.  It aids elimination and assimilation, and helps the body to create hydrochloric acid, which is so necessary for good digestion and assimilation, especially of proteins.  All this becomes very significant when we realize that the digestive system plays the most important role in mental, emotional and physical health, as it is through the digestive  system that the brain, glands, muscles and every other part of the body are fed.

Heart
Cayenne has been known to stop heart attacks within 30 seconds.  For example, when a 90-year-old man in Oregon had a severe heart attack, his daughter was able to get Cayenne extract into his mouth.  He was pronounced dead by the medics, but within a few minutes, he regained consciousness.  On the way to the hospital, he remained in a semi-conscious state, but the daughter kept giving him the Cayenne extract.  By the time they got  to the hospital, he had fully recovered and wanted to go home and mow the lawn.  The doctor asked what she had given him, as he said it was the closest thing to a miracle he had ever seen.

Capsicum (cayenne pepper) is said to be unequal for its ability to boost circulation and increase heart action. Capsicum exerts a variety of desirable actions on the entire cardiovascular system. It has the extraordinary ability to enhance cardiovascular performance while actually lowering blood pressure. Capsicum has an energizing effect on the entire system. It has traditionally been used for overcoming fatigue and restoring stamina and vigor. It is a natural stimulant without the threatening side effects (palpitations, hyper-activity or rise in blood pressure) of most other stimulating agents.

Because Capsicum boots peripheral circulation and stimulates organ secretion, it expedites the therapeutic delivery and action of nutrients in the body. It will ensure the rapid and even distribution of the active principles of available nutrients to critical function centers, including those involved in cellular respiration, metabolic data transmission and neural-hormonal action. The remarkable ability of Capsicum to stimulate organ secretion and even heart action makes it one of the strongest natural stimulants known. Clearly, Capsicum should be considered nothing less than a wonder herb that has scientifically proven its worth!  

If you want to carry something in your first aid kit for a heart attack, carry a cayenne tincture. Even a bottle of Tabasco Sauce® might be good enough. Dr Christopher discovered that a cup of cayenne tea, one tsp of cayenne in a cup of hot water, stopped a heart attack in under three minutes. If you feel one coming on, try a few droppers-full of cayenne tincture and if that doesn’t stop it, then nitroglycerine wouldn’t work either. 
If a heart attack should occur, it is suggested that a teaspoon of extract be given every 15 minutes or a teaspoon of Cayenne in a glass of hot water be taken until the crisis has passed.  Dr. Anderson also knew of a  doctor who rushed out into the parking lot and put cayenne tincture into the mouth of a man who had died of a heart attack while he was parking his car.  Within a few minutes, the man’s heart starting beating again. More about cayenne and heart attacks

According to Dr. Richard Anderson, using cayenne and hawthorn berries together has a most incredible effect upon the heart.  He believes that a regimen of cayenne and hawthorn berries for several months will greatly  strengthen the heart, and possibly prevent heart attacks.  He states further that if an attack were to occur in someone who had followed this regimen, chances are very good that no damage would occur.  He tells the  following story about his mother: 

“I had her taking hawthorn berries and cayenne when she had a heart attack at the age of 79.  Her diet had not been the best, and she was in an extremely stressful situation. While in the hospital, they found three blocked arteries and wanted to operate immediately.  They did not think that she could survive for more than a few weeks if they didn’t operate.  (How many have heard that story!)  The doctors thought it would be very risky to operate, but they had her there, and there was a lot of money to be made.  So they decided to take some tests in the hopes that they could find an excuse to operate.  In spite of the fact that she had  been taking lots of aspirin for her arthritis, smoked like she was the reincarnation of a boiler factory, and had just had a heart attack, they found that her heart was incredibly strong.  In fact, they felt that her heart  was stronger than most people in their 30’s!  The good news was that not only did she survive the operation, but also she stopped smoking!  Well worth the operation, don’t you think? In my opinion, that was the best thing the doctors ever did for her.  Well, that is what hawthorn and cayenne can do for the heart, and every good herbalist knows it; every good doctor should also know it, but very few do.” 

Emergencies
It is a good idea to always have some Cayenne extract on hand for emergencies.  Dr. Anderson carries capsules of cayenne with him in the car and whenever he goes hiking, backpacking or mountain climbing.  He says, “You never know when you may find someone having a heart attack or some other emergency.”

The following stories demonstrate only a few of the remarkable emergency uses of cayenne:

If a hemorrhage occurs in the lungs, stomach, uterus or nose, it is suggested that a teaspoon of extract (or a teaspoon of cayenne powder in a cup of hot water) be given every 15 minutes until the crisis has passed. The bleeding should stop in 10-30 seconds.  The reason for this is that rather than the blood pressure being centralized, it is equalized by the Cayenne, and the clotting action of the blood becomes more rapid.  For external bleeding, take cayenne internally and pour cayenne directly on the wound. 

Dyspepsia
In a double-blind study, 30 individuals with dyspepsia were given either 2.5 grams daily of red pepper powder (divided up and taken prior to meals) or placebo for 5 weeks. By the third week of treatment, individuals taking red pepper were experiencing significant improvements in pain, bloating, and nausea as compared to placebo, and these relative improvement lasted through the end of the study. 

A placebo-controlled crossover study failed to find benefit, but it only enrolled 11 participants, far too few to have much chance of identifying a treatment effect.

All double-blind studies of topical capsaicin (or cayenne) suffer from one drawback: it isn't really possible to hide the burning sensation that occurs during initial use of the treatment. For this reason, such studies probably aren't truly double-blind. It has been suggested that instead of an inactive placebo, researchers should use some other substance (such as camphor) that causes at least mild burning. However, such treatments might also have therapeutic benefits; they have a long history of use for pain as well. 

Because of these complications, the evidence for topical treatments cited below is less meaningful than it might at first appear. 

Pain
Capsaicin cream is well established as a modestly helpful pain-relieving treatment for post-herpetic neuropathy (the pain that lingers after an attack of shingles) peripheral neuropathy (nerve pain that occurs most commonly as a side effect of diabetes, but may occur with HIV as well as other conditions), nerve pain after cancer surgery and arthritis.

Capsaicin instilled into the nose may be helpful for cluster headache. (The fact that this has even been considered a viable treatment option shows how painful cluster headaches can be!)  Actual cayenne rather than capsaicin has been tested for pain as well. A 3-week, double-blind trial of 154 individuals with back pain found that cayenne applied topically as a plaster improved pain to a greater extent than placebo.

Skin Conditions
A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of almost 200 individuals found that use of topical capsaicin can improve itching as well as overall severity of psoriasis. Benefits were also seen in a smaller double-blind study of topical capsaicin for psoriasis. Topical capsaicin is thought to be helpful for various itchy skin conditions, such as prurigo nodularis, but double-blind studies are lacking. 

Cancer
Researchers found capsaicin exhibited anticancer activity (it induced programmed cell death to human cancer cells without affecting normal cells) against pancreatic cancer, an aggressive form of the disease typified by exceptionally poor outcomes." Learn more: A Spicy Twist to Preventing and Treating Cancer

Headaches
Chronic headache sufferers may soon have some new alternatives. The active ingredient in cayenne peppers, capsaicin, is believed to bring headache relief by depleting Substance P, a neurotransmitter that helps send pain signals.  learn more: Can Cayenne Peppers Really Cure a Headache?

I grow my own heirloom hot peppers (tomatoes too). Tried a new one this year called Rooster Spur, small but hot. Great in my salsa! Heirloom seeds can be collected and used to start new plants that keep the character of the original plant.

You know I was born and raised in Michigan.
I used to really be into planting obscure Tomato Plants.
Never tried Peppers, it is said they are easy to grow ?
Many vegetables we buy in stores are bred for shippability and fast growth, not for TASTE.

Potatoes too, did you know there are thousands of potato varietys ?

Same with Apples, many good tasting apples are seldom seen in a market.

LOL!  I know man, they are rough.  I like to cut up half a scotch bonnett and add it to my food, but a whole one eaten raw, is a bit too much! 

My whole face turned red, mouth was on fire, and I was sweating like a whore in church!  LOL!

I think once is enough.  I made $5 bucks off the dare though! LMAOO!!
