Can You Get Sick From Eating Rancid Oil
Possibly : Muktuk, or the skin and blubber of whale or narwhals, is high in Vitamin C, D, and A. Large ingestions over a period of time can lead to hypervitaminosis A, a serious, but treatable, affliction. Nowadays, however, fairly high level of PCBs have been found in muktuk. All things in moderation, but I'll take the sushmi... ...Read more
Not healthy : You won't get sick immediately from eating old cooking oil, but having oil that has been sitting around for a while means the oil has very likely gone rancid. When that happens, trans fats develop and those are very unhealthy for us. So it is generally wise to use fresh oil for cooking and eating. ...Read more
Sure.: Was the food cooked well enough? We're the coals or gas hot enough to cook the food all the way through? Was the grill cleaned from the last use? Was the food to close to charcoal briquettes allowing for some residue to get onto the food? Did the food sit out for a long time after it was cooked on the grill? ...Read more
Possibly: One potential source could be rancid butter on the popcorn. ...Read more
Can you get food poisoning just from smelling bad chicken? Can the germs get you sick through your nose?
No but why?: Why would you put yourself at risk using bacon obviously spoiled. The vapors from this are harmless although possibly irritation if inhaled too deeply or steadily. But i suggest spoiled bacon should be put in compost or discarded. ...Read more
I'm concerned about being vegan and vegetarian. Can a person get sick from drinking milk but not sick from eating yogurt or cheeze?
Let's talk: A vegan eats nothing of animal origin and probably does not wear leather. As often used, "vegetarians" often will drink milk ; perhaps eat eggs. Both options are primarily for moral reasons, and the health benefits are elusive when we control for the fact that these people tend to have other healthy habits. The idea that milk / meat are intrinsically unhealthy if prepared well is hard to support. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Food poisoning can come from any food item. All it takes is enough bacteria to accumulate in the food so that when we eat it our bodies become ill. Generally our bodies will recover in a short period - days to weeks. (but, those can be some pretty miserable days!) use care when storing food or eating/reheating leftovers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you get food poisoning from eating food cooked on a grill near meat if you are vegetarian for years? Sudden body aches like flu next day
Hmmmm...?: If you are asking whether your food, touching meat on a grill, would make you sick, simply because you are a vegetarian, I'd have to say no. On the other hand, if several other people at your cookout got sick too, it could be food poisoning. Expect some vomiting and/or diarrhea. More likely, with your symptoms, the infection you've been exposed to is viral, not food-borne. Get rest and fluids! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: The role of diet in causing acne seems to be minor; the best-attested link isn't to chocolate but to dairy and even this seems only modest. If you're prone to pimples, you can generally keep them at bay with daily topical benzoyl peroxide. Your physician can also help if this isn't sufficient. ...Read more
Can you tell me why I vomit vegetable oil after eating too much high fat foods? I vomit just the oil and it looks literally like vegetable oil.
Vomit oil: How do you know it is vegetable oil? High fat foods can have animal fats as well. Never heard of this but oil floats to top and thus comes out first. My recommendation is to no eat so much high fat foods. It seems like you body it trying to send you a message. Ask about gall bladder disease. Any in your family? ...Read more
How do you know if you have stomach/intestinal parasites? Could i get them from eating fast food or in restaurants?
Getting Tetanus: You get tetanus from exposure to the bacterium, clostridium tetani. It is uncommon to acquire tetanus from eating contaminated dirt, but it is possible. Most of the time an open wound, such as a cut, is exposed to the bacterium. Anytime a cut occurs, especially if there is a puncture wound, a tetanus shot should be given, especially if it has been a few years since the last vaccination. ...Read more
