I've kept quiet about this until now: it has some hazards
for at least some people, and in at least a few cases, they
can be serious.
For me, it causes an instant and serious asthmatic attack.
I'd probably die if I were sprayed with pepper gas (as, in
fact, some people have).
We learned this when my husband was grilling pepperjack
cheese on a bagel in our toaster oven. Since then, I've
experienced red pepper being grilled a few more times
(things he didn't realize contained red pepper): same
result: cannot breathe, and must instantly get outdoors,
away from it. I had the same experience when I worked at a
university when someone set off pepper gas in their locker
as a 'prank'.
