How are some people able to eat "unhealthy" things, while others could not handle eating those same things, even if these people are very healthy not putting bad stuff in their stomach (like meats, oil, acidic food...).

Is it the strength of the immune system that is responsible for this?

What is responsible for how much "unhealthy" things one can eat and get away with it more than others?

None of that is necessarily bad for you.

It comes down to:
genetics. possessing different enzymes, like for digesting lactose, and properly functioning acid control in your stomach
Gut flora. having a good community of microbes in your gut)
what you're eating besides the "bad" stuff. If you have a well-rounded diet, splurging has fewer consequences. That's partially because it gives you better gut flora.
inflammatory response. This probably fits more under genetics than anything else, but there's probably environmental roles too. IBS isn't completely understood. Again, maybe something with gut flora.
culture. I think a lot of it's just what you're conditioned to eat as you're growing up. If you grow up eating spicy food, then it's less likely to fuck with your stomach when you're older. That, and some flavors you would just find more palatable. I also think there's a psychological component (some people have too much goddamn guilt associated with junk food).

none of these things are inherently unhealthy. fucking educate yourself. Oils are a kind of fat, fats in moderation are just another part of a healthy, well balanced human being.

That's a big factor but you can still adapt to certain foods when you're older. I couldn't stand spicy food as a kid but I got the hang of it in my late 20s.

I think humans can acquire a taste for almost anything if you expose yourself to it enough.

How long does the "unhealthiness" or "impact to ones health" last once something unhealthy has been eaten, assuming the individual always usually is eating "healthy"- something that is designed to be put in the body ...

If that person eats a bag of potato chips for example, after the stomach has digested it and its shit out, is the impact to the health then over, or does it still have some effect on health? .. basically will the health reset once it has been shit out ? ....

it probably has some lingering effect based on your metabolism and genetics. also the proportion of your diet that is made up of shit would also be a factor

it's nowhere near that simple. if you eat for example a shitload of sugar, those sugar crystals float in your blood stream and scratch your blood vessels leaving scars. this is a big issue with diabetics. so the scratches could happen and then once your blood levels normalize that damage is still there. if you ingest something that does damage, the damage remains after the hurty thing is gone. plus if it was stored as fat, the fat will remain until it is burned off. etc. there are many possible effects of different things

hmm yeah looks like that's just a myth. a very intelligent paramedic explained it to me so i just assumed it was true. looking it up, it looks like sugar causes damage in more complicated ways, like messing with proteins and glycation. regardless, i was just saying that different things can cause different types of unhealthinesses

Idk man I think he's onto something. You ever see them sugar alternatives? That's right those are powder, aka no crystals. Ergo crystals are bad for you, checkmate son.

Yah dude. Most people dig their heels in, and I felt like a jerk for how I called you out.

The only reference to sugar crystals in the bloodstream I could find was from Dr. Oz. That just goes to show how toxic those charlatans are! They start these myths, and intelligent well-meaning people just kinda pass along the misinformation, because nobody fact-checks every little thing they hear. Everybody does it (myself included), especially with food.

One time, I even got convinced that you could put mayonnaise on a stick

I envy people that can eat spicy food and not shit out liquidized intestine soup the next day.

I can handle the regular one but I can't handle the 2x. I was throwing up and shit after I ate the 2x one.

Holy shit, throwing up? I've been fucking fortunate then, I just had non-stop pain on my tongue/mouth and tears streaming like waterfalls. My try-hard spice-hound friend wants me to bring one of those for him to try.

My fucking pleasure, I'm going to love watching him suffer.

Shit fuckin sucked dude. My friend who's Indonesian introduced me to it initially but yeah give it to your friend and see how they feel after trying to eat that. I swear the heat burned a hole through my stomach or something real fierce.
