What happens if you consumed spoiled food:
Consuming spoilage food can have serious health consequences, as the food may contain harmful bacteria, toxins, or other contaminants that can cause illness.
When food spoils, it can develop a range of unpleasant odors, textures, and appearances, which are often indicative of the presence of bacteria or other microorganisms. These microorganisms can multiply rapidly in the right conditions, and can produce toxins that can cause illness when ingested.
Symptoms of food poisoning, which is often caused by consuming spoilage food, can vary depending on the specific microorganism or toxin involved. Common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever, and headache. These symptoms can range from mild to severe, and in some cases, can be life-threatening.
