54 Year old Li Yongzhi, loves chillies more than anything else.
Li, who lives in the village of Shawoli in the Henan providence, consumes up to 2.5kg of chillies per day
He likes to start his day by eating a few dry raw chillies before washing his teeth then follows it up with an unusual breakfast of raw chillies and chilli powder.
In his native province chillies are sparse but Li got his taste for chillies when he travelled around China as a migrant worker, working in areas where spicy dishes were the norm.
Li plans to use his spicy talents to set up a chilli farm and hopefully sell his own peppers all over the world.
Our eyes are watering just watching him eat.
