Previously, the Typical Student team told you about US Student Dies After Drinking Vodka From Pig’s Head To Join Uni Society. Sadly, this isn't the only accident involving students and food. We have picked three deadly food stories as a reminder that you should be more careful with your eating habits.
#1 Student died from food poisoning after eating 5-day old pasta
This most recent story told by Dr Bernard on his YouTube channel allegedly dates back to 2008. Nevertheless, it has left the Internet shaken. Student named AJ, 20, ate a portion of pasta that he had cooked five days prior, but "had been left on the side for around two days." After that, it was kept in the fridge for another three days. Then, AJ decided to have the pasta for lunch, so he heated it in the microwave and ate it.
In a few hours, he felt abdominal pain, nausea, and a terrible headache. AJ disregarded all of that as a typical case of food poisoning, took medicine and went to bed. Sadly, a post mortem discovered that he had died from a severe form of food poisoning that was caused by bacillus cereus, a dangerous spore-forming bacteria that created poisonous toxins in his body.
