Man eats 28 raw eggs, dies

35 posts in this topic

Going by the article itself...

Dhaou Fatnassi... swallowed the eggs... The young man then experienced stomach pains and was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival

"Then" could mean any acute time period following the swallowing of the eggs; it is not clearly indicative of a few seconds to minutes, especially not in a poorly reported article such as this.

perhaps he had a pre-existing condition that was exasperated by the consumption of the 28 eggs?

If salmonella killed him, it would have been a couple of days later. You don't put "then" for a time period several days (or even hours) later, you put it when you mean almost immediately after.

Or it's being used to establish a sequence of events rather than necessarily meaning immediately after. If I'd have replied to your post tomorrow, one could still say FloatingFatMan posted then Manish did.

If it was anaphylaxis, he'd be unlikely to experience just abdominal pain and die despite managing to seek medical help.

Shall we just agree to disagree as it's pointless trying to diagnose the cause of death solely based off this article?

about a year and a half ago i was visiting a friend. we had breakfast sandwiches one morning - toast, ham, egg, cheese. i had the egg, but my friend didnt. about an hour after eating it i started to feel weird. kinda sick, but i didnt think much of it. it got worse throughout the day. about 6hrs after eating, i lost it.... came back up in an amazing volume. after that, i was a total wreck for 8hrs. constant vomiting, diarrhea, cold sweats, fever, shaking. i couldnt keep anything down. 8 hours of total hell. it was the worst experience of my life.

the next day i managed to drive home (4hrs) but laid in bed for the next 2 days. i didnt get my appetite back for nearly a week. lost 15lbs. didnt eat an egg for about 3 months after that!

worst experience of my life. i wouldnt wish it on anyone.

Not sure if anyone mentioned it. But the cholesterol in the eggs is what killed him most likely. This isn't the first time some idiot died from eating too many eggs. Cholesterol goes directly into the blood and will affect your heart in a short time. Only a fool eats more than 3 eggs in one sitting. Raw egg I mean.

I think he should be a Darwin Award candidate myself.
