That list is ranked in order of how badly it affects me. All of them are fine if cooked well enough.
How does it affect me? It hurts my tongue after I've eaten a decent amount. I have looked in the mirror, and my taste buds literally swell up and they feel like they're about to burst. My tongue is red and the cracks are more evident. I've described the sensation as burning, itching, irritated, but it's not really any of that.
