I was always told to properly deseed peppers before you cooked them (or eat them raw in the salads), because the pepper seeds are bad for you, unlike tomato seeds they have no jelly around them so they get stuck in your gut. Is this true or some old myth?

Not at all true. Old wives tale. They say to get rid of the membrane if you dont like hot chillies but thats only because thats the hot bit, even then its because people used to think its the seeds that burnt but its not that true.
