Comic: The Foodborne

aka. The Blade of Explosive Diarrhea


News this week included a young man who died from rat-lungworm parasite after eating slug on a dare - slow death by nerve damage. I was surprised to learn garden snails are among the top-10 most dangerous critters. No word on how long to cook slugs.

"No doctor would choose to die by fatal stooling." - is a real thing I heard that has stuck with me. See hover-text for alternate, more graphic punchline.

Animal germs have been particularly dangerous. All our favorite farm animals live with viruses that caused serious trouble when they jumped into a person. Thousands of live animals crowded close together for farming, also breeds invisible pathogens - conspiring to escape.
