Carolina Pepper Challenge (Photo Source: Facebook/screenshot)

A recent video on Facebook has gone viral after showing a man eating a  Carolina pepper. The man seems to be with co-workers during lunch and on a dare eats the pepper, also known as the Carolina Reaper, which is considered among the hottest peppers in the world. Eating such a pepper can cause serious health problems that include vomiting, shortness of breath, and in the case of the man in this video, flatulence.
