When you think of dangerous things, you would probably think of something like bears, however there is one thing that is severely underestimated…Food! Today we’re talking about food injuries!  A man in San Francisco was faced with a competition that was just too ‘hot’ to turn down! The challenge was to simply eat a ghost pepper. He passed the challenge, however is esophagus did not survive the feat. The pepper was so hot that it burned a one-inch hole in his esophagus. The injury was so severe that he was in the hospital for three weeks and even had tube implanted in his throat so he can eat food again! 


What happened when you were injured by food?
