What Happens If You Eat Rotten Chicken?

Hello friends and once again welcome back
to Life’s Biggest Question, the channel that looks to answer both, those every day
questions, as well as some far fetched questions, you may have. And today, we’re talking about chicken. Now I don’t know about you guys, but chicken
is in my top 5 favourite foods. Maybe even top 3. It’s just so good. You can bake it, cook it, fry it, there’s
just so many options, and for the most part, it’s quite healthy. I mean depends how it’s made but it’s
always packed with protein and delicious flavour. What’s not to love ? But rotten chicken,
well that’s a different story. The taste isn’t quite the same, it doesn’t
look very appetizing and if you do end up eating it, well you’re in for a bit of a
wild ride. Today, we’ll be talking about the repercussions
of What Happens If You Eat Rotten Chicken, and what you should do if you find yourself
in such a predicament. Before we do jump into it though, allow me
to introduce myself to those of you who don’t know me. I’m one of your hosts, Jarred Bronstein,

serious bacteria, such as salmonella and e-coli. And although cooking your chicken thoroughly
can rid it of such bacteria, some toxins can survive the heat, and cause you to have some
serious problems such as food poisoning. Let’s explore. Assuming your chicken is properly cooked,
you don’t have to worry so much about Salmonella or E-Coli, both types of bacteria that can
result in serious illness such as diarrhea, vomiting, fever, cramps, and headaches. In more serious cases of E-Coli, you could
actually have internal hemorrhaging, although it’s not that likely. But let’s just say you properly cooked your
rotten chicken, and ate it without realizing it was rotten. What happens next? Well, it depends on how your body reacts. Aside from obviously the terrible taste you’d
have in your mouth, it’s possible you could see symptoms anywhere from a couple hours
up to 48 hours after eating the chicken. Now if you’re lucky, you might have some
diarrhea, maybe a stomach ache, and that’s it. If you’re really lucky, you might just have
some irregular stool and that’s it. But nine out of ten times, you’re gonna
be using the bathroom so much, it’ll become a second home. Usually those with food poisoning in general
tend to be nauseous, but a lot of the time those affected will inevitably throw up. Of course, you’ll also have the runs, so
it’s a matter of how your body wants to get rid of the bacteria, either from the top
or the bottom. And in more extreme cases, both. The danger here is that you can become dehydrated. But if you try to eat or drink anything, your
stomach is most likely to reject it all together because it’s trying to fix it’s initial
problem, the rotten chicken. So what can you do to help yourself while
you go through this rough experience. Well again, it depends on how severe your
case is, but most professionals would recommend starting off by taking small sips of water. This is a good test to see if your body is
willing to hold anything down, and with water being the most bland thing, it’s the least
likely to cause a negative reaction. If you’re able to keep the water down, it’s
recommended to keep taking small sips to ensure your body stays hydrated. The amount of water you’d lose with every
trip to the bathroom could lead to serious cases of dehydration which could lead to other
problems all together. If you’re able to go an hour without puking
or having diarrhea, you may be able to finally start keeping foods down. You may even have an appetite. But before you order Mcdonalds or a Pizza,
which would most likely cause you to be sick again, I’d recommend starting with the basics. Bland foods that won’t upset your stomach,
which has already been through hell. We’re talking bananas, toast, rice, crackers,
the boring stuff. But given the state you’d be in, not only
would anything taste good, your body would appreciate the energy boost. Things like dairy, spice, fatty and greasy
foods could further prolong the recovery. By now, you may still feel a little ill, possibly
weak and maybe nauseous, but your symptoms most likely wouldn’t be as severe, assuming
you didn’t throw up the bland foods. It’d be highly recommended that you continue
to drink water to make sure you stay hydrated, and eat binding foods that will help your
stool go back to it’s healthy, hard self. Although it’s more than likely you’d have
diarrhea possibly a day or two after the other symptoms subside, that’s your body just
riding any bacteria or toxins left over. But this is if you have any average case. There’s the possibility that your condition
can be extremely severe, to the point where you wouldn’t be able to keep anything down
at all, including water. If you’re caught in a situation as unfortunate
as this one, you’d find yourself making a trip to the hospital. Not necessarily the emergency room, but assuming
you can’t keep any food or water down, aside from dehydration, your body would be lacking
necessary nutrients that will help you recover. The only other way to get the water and nutrients
into your system would be through an intravenous, more commonly know as an IV. Following the IV drip, your body should start
to feel more normal and eventually you’ll be on your way back to living a normal life. But of course, there’s always the absolute
worst case scenario. The bacteria in your body is so bad, you need
an antibiotic to get rid of it. This antibiotic could either be prescribed
orally, most likely in pill form, but in some cases, it would also be in the IV hooked up
to you. Of course, as previously mentioned, everyone
would be affected differently. Younger children or elderly would have a tougher
time fighting off the bacteria, while a healthy 20 or 30 year old most likely wouldn’t have
as tough of a time. But I think our safest bet is to avoid rotten
chicken at all costs. If you’re unsure if the chicken is rotten
from looking at it, one taste and you’ll know. It’s recommended that when you do the taste
test, you spit out the chicken if its rotten instead of swallowing it for obvious reasons. Even a little amount of raw chicken can cause
a serious reaction. So, let’s cap off this video by all collectively
agreeing we won’t be eating raw chicken anytime soon. And if for whatever reason you do, well at
least you’ll have tons of LBQ’s to watch while your bed, or more likely, toilet ridden. And on that note, let’s read some comments
