Can high cholesterol levels be the cause?

Not within such a short space of time, no.

I enjoy the taste of raw eggs. Drink two with a bit of salt pretty much every day.
Never had the need to drink more than that at once, but I bet it wouldn't kill me. There's just no reason for it to kill.

Some other cause was definitely involved.

This is eggsactly the kind of eggstreme behavior I would expect for an eggciting , eggstravagent and eggsplosive display of stupid ! Feel sorry for the doctors who had to eggsamine the body. I just hope the funeral costs are not eggstortionate, as its a lot to shell out these days :laugh:

Did he do it to impress a chick ?

Thats all yolks !

There's something undocumented going on here. Something in the eggs we don't know about... an easter egg, perhaps.

While I don't necessarily agree or disagree, what could/would have caused him to die then?


he could have a very slight allergy to the proteins in the egg? eating to much of one thing even if good for you can kill you (bannanas for example) he could of simply OD'ed on eggs lol or had a reaction he was having stomach pains it sounds like a rejection rather then some kind of virus ... the eggs them selves could have be contaminated with farm yard chemicals who knows :p

DEATH by egg. It isn't the most glamourous way to shuffle off this mortal coil but that's how it ended for one man after he ate 28 of them - raw.

The young Tunisian man has reportedly died after winning a bet to eat 28 raw eggs in one go.

Dhaou Fatnassi, 20, from the town of Kairouan, swallowed the eggs after his friends challenged him to do so for an undisclosed sum of money.

The young man then experienced stomach pains and was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival, Shems FM reported.

Clicked on the source link, expecting to see more information; instead I saw an example of **** journalism.

Maybe a bad reaction to the eggs.

He died too quickly for that.

How have you established the timeframe?

I don't see why he couldn't have died from sepsis due to Salmonella infection from consuming multiple raw eggs.

Going by the article itself...

Clearly indicating there was a short time period between ingestion and death. Far too fast for a salmonella infection; that would take in the order of multiple hours to manifest, and many more to kill him.

"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.
