Sick Accidentally Ate
Accidentally ate a really mouldy cinnamon roll (white mould)! Dangerous? If I was to get sick, how long would it take from eating the mould?
Possible: The danger is small, but real, as a small number of mould species produce toxins called mycotoxins (fungal toxins). Even if present, unless conditions were just right, no toxins may have been formed. Most cases recognized have occurred by ingestion of foods made from contaminated grains. So, it is unlikely that you will have any ill effects, impossible to say when. ...Read more

Well: Well not the best idea! It will depend on how the cheese is made. I simulator the you will be ok for you did not notice the cheese was moldy or foul tasting Time will tell. But don't do it again ...Read more
Unlikely: Consider the obvious. Dust exists in the environment in which you work & breathe. You silently consume dust particles every day of your life .These are in the air you breathe and settle onto the food you consume. Your system processes them and removes them without notice. I would ignore any worry you attach to this idea. It is not worth the effort. ...Read more

I ate moldy bread (3-5 pieces) accidently and my daughter (2-3 pieces). Will we get sick (vomit, nausea)?
No: We all need to get over the idea that ordinary dirt is bad for you. Bread mold spores are pathogenic for some people with extremely compromised immune systems, but not fo ryou. ...Read more

Is it possible to get sick if my outdoor cat (who eats mice) accidentally got saliva/nasal excretions in my food and I ate it? I noticed she was drooling after jumping on me, so some of the saliva may have gotten in my food. (Is Hantavirus possible?)
Probably OK: Unless you drank a lot, you're probably okay. ...Read more
Probably NOT: Kids can accidentally swallow tiny spiders while playing outdoors. The amount of venom in a tiny bug should not be a problem if swallowed and digested, or if rolled around in the mouth and spit out. A big poisonous spider biting a kid inside his mouth would be bad. If a kid chomped on a spider, it's possible that venom could be absorbed in the mouth; but in the stomach, acid should disable venom. ...Read more
I accidentally took a bite or two of a very stale moldy graham cracker. I didnt eat the whole cracker. Will this make me sick? Freaking out.
Not seriously: It is unlikely that you will have more than a mild case of food poisoning or gastrointestinal discomfort. Most food molds are not the cause of disease but rather toxins from pathogenic bacteria that may accompany them. Report to your dr if you experience more than a mild diarrhea ...Read more
Accidentally drank old bottled water. It was first opened (and drank from) a month ago. Will I get sick? What should I do?
I accidentally took two acid reducer pills within two hours that were meant to be taken 12 hours apart. Will I get sick from it?
Little or no risk: If someone with a cold, flu, or a gastrointestinal infection had very recently used the doorknob, there might be a slight risk but extremely unlikely. I'm wondering if you're a germophobe, i.e. abnormally fearful of contamination. If such fear dominates your life, consider counseling. It can be an early sign of serious mental health disability -- rent "The Aviator" to see where this can lead. ...Read more

I accidentally broke a small light bulb today. Apparently if it contained mercury it can give you gastroenteritis. Am I going to get sick now ?
Probably not: Mercury is contained in the newer CFL bulbs, the ones that look like this picture. It is not present in significant amounts in older bulbs. If you got it on your hands, you should wash them well with water and follow the clean-up instructions here: http://www2.epa.gov/cfl/cleaning-broken-cfl Mercury can harm young children and unborn babies. It's generally harmful to others only in large amounts. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

You may not get sick: It depends on the state of meat before you ate. If the meat was from a healthy animal that was slaughtered and processed hygienically, you may not suffer any ill-effects. If these conditions are not met, illnesses range from gastro-enterititis within hours to parasitic infestations that may take years to express. ...Read more
