Can eating too many Flamin' Hot Cheetos cause your stomach to bleed?  In a story that sounds like fake news, 22-year old rapper Lil Xan posted a video online this week alerting his 5 million Instagram fans that he had been discharged from the hospital after an ambulance had taken him in for vomiting blood from eating too many of the spicy Cheetos. While the rapper concludes his video that he is okay and warns fans to be careful about eating too many of the cheesy snacks. That sets up the question, can eating too many Flamin' Hot Cheetos cause your stomach to bleed?  According to an emergency room physician, eating a lot of spicy foods can cause excess gastric acid in your stomach causing irritation and could erode the lining of your stomach causing abdominal pain and a burning sensation. However, there is a chance the red coloring of the snack could be mistaken for blood. Peppers, beets, radishes, turnips, red meat, and melon are among the common foods known to produce false positives when checking for blood in the stomach. And of course eating too much of any junk food can cause stomach pain. But the advice of moderation rings true with most foods including Flamin' Hot Cheetos, especially if you have acid reflux disease.
