See below: Pepper spices generally don't but several other "spices" do. Turmeric is one major one. Cumin can too. But if you practice good hygiene and use deodorant, you should be ok. That shouldn't stop you from consuming them though. Turmeric, for example, is excellent for health. It's been shown even in western research to fight cancer and infections.
