Spiciness of more than 1 million units of "broken soul pepper", is the main raw material of India's new tear gas, the world record is to eat 5 at a time.
Instead, this person ate 32 of them in 30 minutes.
This person, known as "China's spicy king" of Henan, Li Yongzhi.
5 pounds of chili peppers with white wine every day, Li Yongzhi has been eating for decades, the doctor advised him not to do so, but he could not listen.
Now ten years have passed, how is his health? Can he still eat spicy food?
Speaking of "King of Spice" Li Yongzhi, we have to start with a bowl of chili noodles.
In the summer of 2008, a small restaurant in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, was crowded with diners.
This small restaurant is adjacent to a construction site, every mealtime, workers on the site to eat, a time, the restaurant is overcrowded.
The boss brought a large bowl of chow mein to the table and was just about to leave when a middle-aged man at a nearby table handed over an empty bowl and said, "Boss, put on a bowl of chili.
This is a large yellow porcelain bowl specializing in chili noodles, the boss saw only a few scattered chili noodles left at the bottom of the bowl, thinking that the chili noodles were eaten by the last set of customers, so he picked up the large bowl full of chili noodles sent over.
After a 10-minute pause, the owner brought a plate of food to another table of guests.
Just see the middle-aged man who just asked for chili noodles handed another large empty bowl, said: boss, chili noodles are out.
The boss was stunned and said, "Didn't I just serve you a bowl? What is it, is it stealing chili noodles?
Just as the boss was fuming, the customer at the table next to the middle-aged man also handed over a large bowl and said.
He finished our chili too, so please serve some for us too.
Hearing this, the shopkeeper was even more sure of his suspicions:.
The migrant workers on the site really see what theft, even chili noodles are not spared.
He turned to the middle-aged man a little angrily and said, "Didn't I just serve you a bowl? How come it's gone in less than 10 minutes.
The middle-aged man has not yet spoken, the customer at the table next to him took over: really finished, we saw him eat two bowls of chili noodles.
The store owner did not believe, he took the empty bowl in the hands of the middle-aged man, said, I will give you another bowl, if you can eat, today's meal you can order, eat as much as you want to count me.
It was the time to eat, and the bustling customers came over to see what all the fuss was about.
I saw the middle-aged man unhurriedly stood up, hugged the crowd and said: My name is Li Yongzhi, everyone do a witness, see if I can finish a bowl of chili noodles.
If I can finish it, I will thank the boss for his hospitality. If I can't finish it, I will pay 100 yuan to compensate the boss for the chili noodles.
Hearing Li Yongzhi said so, the owner of the store with the confidence of certain victory was a little hesitant, did this person really eat two bowls of chili noodles?
Amidst the uproar, the boss brought in another bowl full of chili noodles.
Just see Li Yongzhi slowly picked up the white spoon in the bowl of chili and began to copy a spoonful of chili into his mouth.
The chili noodles were slightly chewed twice in Li Yongzhi's mouth and easily swallowed. Immediately after, he ate the second and third spoonfuls, and without using five minutes, he finished a bowl full of chili noodles.
Amidst everyone's surprise and admiration, Li Yongzhi, like a victorious warrior, rattled his stomach and said, "Yes!
He can eat spicy things, Li Yongzhi played a child to know.
He was born in a rural area of Xinzheng, Henan Province, as a child, his family was poor, the vegetable field occasionally planted some peppers as a condiment, some children were too spicy to eat, but Li Yongzhi never said too spicy not to eat.
But he barely felt the spicy thing, Li Yongzhi lived more than 40 years, but also the first time to know.
Li Yongzhi finished junior high school and stopped going to school, went out with the village people, and went north and south to get work. When eating, there are chili peppers to eat, no chili peppers can also be passed.
This time to the snack bar to eat, because too many people, late to wait for the meal, too hungry, and idle boredom, Li Yongzhi picked up the spoon in the bowl of chili, scooped up some chili noodles into the mouth chewing.
He found that the chili noodles turned out to be quite fragrant, originally only unintentionally tasted, but the results aroused the appetite, so he ate a second spoonful, and as a result, the more he ate, the hungrier he was, and at once finished half a bowl of chili noodles on his table.
The workers who went with him saw that he actually ate chili like this and became interested, so they brought the bowl of chili from the neighboring table over for him to eat as well.
Li Yongzhi ate all the chili noodles on two tables in one breath, at this time, it happened that the boss sent rice over, they gave the boss to ask for chili, so the scene at the beginning of the article occurred.
Li Yongzhi is not afraid of spicy things soon spread among the old folks and workers, people said: you have this ability, but also in the construction site to sell labor to earn money? How about making money by eating spicy food.
Can you make money eating chili?
Li Yongzhi learned that he could participate in a spicy eating contest and win prizes and be a brand spokesperson, all of which were channels of income, much easier than when he worked as a bricklayer at a construction site.
So, Li Yongzhi began to participate in the restaurant's sickly spicy and extreme spicy challenges, and as a result, he was able to succeed in each challenge with ease.
From then on, Li Yongzhi's reputation of winning every spicy competition spread in a small area, and he began to be invited to participate in spicy eating competitions held in various cities.
In the competition, Li Yongzhi encountered opponents generally from Hunan, Sichuan, Chongqing and other places.
These cities, which are the most famous chili pepper producing areas in China, are known for their spicy food by the locals.
As soon as they heard that Li Yongzhi was from Henan, they did not consider him as a competitor from the bottom of their hearts, but after one game, they were all convinced by Li Yongzhi's food.
In 2012, Li Yongzhi took part in Hunan TV's "Who's Got Talent" program, in which Li Yongzhi challenged the Yunnan specialty chili pepper "Shabu Shabu Spicy".
This kind of chili, it is said that elephants will be eaten by the spicy run wild, until exhaustion and collapse to die.
Such a mysterious chili pepper, Yunnan locals are rarely eaten, people who know the inside story predicted that Li Yongzhi could not eat two.
After learning how powerful shabu shabu was, the program team was ready to abandon the production of this program for fear of accidents during the chili eating process. Li Yongzhi, however, patted his chest and packed his bags, saying that it was not a problem at all.
Prudently, the program team gave Li Yongzhi a medical checkup, and arranged an ambulance and medical team in advance to prevent any untoward incidents.
As a result, Li Yongzhi ate nine shabu-shabu spicy grains in one gulp, and after he finished eating, he drank a bottle of mineral water in a calm manner.
The program's doctor gave him a second medical examination and found that his physical condition was no different from before he ate chili.
In the early spring of 2014, CCTV invited Li Yongzhi to participate in the reality cooking show "Taste of China", in which Li Yongzhi beat his rivals and won the "Golden Chopsticks" award.
With the broadcast of the program, Li Yongzhi's name was known to people, a plate of chili into the mouth, swallowed into the belly, Li Yongzhi won the title of "China's spicy king" for himself by strength.
After becoming the "King of Spice in China", Li Yongzhi saw more people eating spicy food, and he began to feel the threat of "stronger in the middle".
In order to ensure that he is the deserved king of spicy, Li Yongzhi began to consciously exercise his ability to eat spicy.
He eats 5 pounds of chili peppers every day, and he eats them with white wine and garlic. In this devil training, Li Yongzhi's ability to eat spicy food has broken new ground.
Li Yongzhi's reputation as "China's spicy king" soon became known to foreign chili lovers.
In the fall of 2014, the World Devil Pepper Challenge was held in India, and the organizers came to China specifically to find Li Yongzhi and ask him to participate in the competition.
Li Yongzhi lived into his 50s and was invited to compete abroad for the first time, which he gladly accepted.
For the first time out of the country, Li Yongzhi's mood was overwhelming, and he wore a pre-ordered "China Spice King" T-shirt and hung two strings of bright red chili peppers around his neck, and came to the Indian competition site with confidence.
Li Yongzhi's confidence in the Indian Devil Pepper's win was met with skepticism from the locals.
No wonder, the Indian devil pepper in the local called "broken soul pepper", more than 1 million units of spiciness, is the Guinness Book of Records of the hottest pepper.
This chili was used as a hedge to keep out invaders on farmland and yards when India was economically backward because it was so spicy.
Later, Indian scientists began refining raw materials in devil's pepper for a new type of hand grenade.
Defense experts believe grenades made with Indian devil peppers are spicy enough to instantly suffocate terrorists.
Such a powerful chili, only a very few people in India dare to eat, the record for the most eaten is 5.
When the challenge began, in full view of everyone, Li Yongzhi ate 32 devil peppers in one sitting, successfully breaking the world record held by an Indian.
Returning from India with accolades, Li Yongzhi participated in more spicy eating competitions and even the media in the UK, Germany and Japan were attracted by his reputation.
The media followed up with him, reporting on his spicy eating process and discussing his reasons for eating spicy food and his habits.
From an unknown migrant worker, Li Yongzhi has become a spicy food star in the eyes of millions.
In order to realize the unique skills as soon as possible, in early 2018, Li Yongzhi also became a member of the live army, he opened his own live account "Spicy King Li Yongzhi".
On air, Li Yongzhi always puts a pot of chili, a pot of white wine and a bowl of garlic on the table.
He says that chili is his daily food and that he has to eat it with white wine and garlic to enjoy it.
Li Yongzhi chatted with his fans while sending a chili into his mouth, then took a sip of white wine and a clove of garlic.
Looking at this way of eating, fans have marveled: not spicy? Not unpleasant?
It is important to know that chili and white wine, which themselves tend to damage the oral and gastrointestinal mucous membranes of people, will double the degree of damage to the human body when these two things are eaten together with garlic.
Whenever fans are skeptical of Lee's eating style, Lee says.
Own usual staple food is also based on chili peppers, a day basically to eat 5 pounds of chili peppers up and down, and there is no no white wine and garlic as a condiment, eating chili peppers are no taste.
Some viewers who saw Li Yongzhi's live broadcast would also kindly advise him to eat less chili and take care of his health.

By relying on the amazing gimmick, Li Yongzhi's live broadcast was very popular and immediately had ten million fans.

In 2020, a person claiming to be Li Yongzhi's daughter started to appear frequently in the video number of "Spicy King Li Yongzhi", but Li Yongzhi disappeared from people's sight.
It turns out that Li Yongzhi is sick!
5 pounds of chili peppers with white wine every day, the iron stomach can not suffer.
As the number of live broadcasts increased, Li Yongzhi often felt a vague pain in his stomach.
In the beginning, Li Yongzhi did not care about the stinging pain in his stomach, and he continued to eat chili and shoot videos for the camera every day.
Finally one day, Li Yongzhi's stomach pain during the live broadcast, endured to the end of the live broadcast, Li Yongzhi's eyes went black and fell head first to the ground.
The family was terrified, and immediately sent him to the hospital, to the hospital a checkup, it turns out that Li Yongzhi has got a gastric perforation, hemorrhage.
In order to live effect, Li Yongzhi every day non-stop white wine with chili peppers to eat, serious damage to the gastric mucosa, without the protection of the gastric mucosa, stomach ulcers septic, perforation is a matter of time.
Li Yongzhi was hospitalized, and his doctor warned him that he could no longer eat spicy food or drink liquor to avoid irritating his stomach and having a relapse.
Li Yongzhi fell down, but the live broadcast could not stop.
It turns out that Li Yongzhi is signed with a network company live agreement, Li Yongzhi is responsible for live, the network company is responsible for marketing, two-fifths share of income.
Not to do live is the same as a breach of contract, there is no income, no choice, Li Yongzhi had to continue to live with stomach problems.
Not long after, his stomach was broken again and he was admitted to the hospital again.
This time in the hospital, the doctor warned him must no longer eat irritating food, or wait until a big mistake, regret are too late.
It is the doctor did not warn, Li Yongzhi also feel that this time the stomach disease is unusual, he now eat a little chili pepper on the stomach pain to the sky, unbearable.

He is looking forward to his future comeback by relying on his former reputation as the "King of Spice in China".
From a construction site worker, to the fame and fortune of the "King of Spice", and then to the loss of healthy body, Li Yongzhi's life, like a roller coaster ride as thrilling.
People like to say that "you always have to pay back for what you have done". Even if you are gifted, unchecked and used wilfully, you will eventually be damaged.
Nature has nature's laws, which preach "not to burn the forest and hunt, not to dry up the water and fish".
Like Li Yongzhi take their bodies for traffic, for fame and fortune, sooner or later will be kidnapped by the traffic, eventually ruined the body, ruined themselves.
Thankfully, Li Yongzhi finally started treating his body well after recurring stomach problems.
Lost the aura of the spicy king, only to understand the preciousness of life, the price is heavy, but it is worth it.
