How many times per year do you get food poisoning?

I'm trying to see if I'm above or below average and if I need to change my life style.

Please also share any theory on why/where you are getting bad food.

I'm pretty sure I'm getting it from eating out randomly, even at reputable restaurants. Got poisoned from a boba drink once.

    An upset stomach isn't food poisoning... To answer your poll, I average once every 18-24 months. Multiple times a year is uh alamring.

    Got food poisoning from a sketchy Vietnamese restaurant. I instantly knew something was up a couple hours after as it felt like the food was sitting in my chest. Not fun.

    In regards to you getting sick from boba. You could have just picked up norovirus (people call this the stomach flu) and after x amount of hours it kicked in. If you’re sick right now, I hope you feel better!

      OP
      Boba was awhile back and it got me within 30 min. Hope it's not Nono virus!

    Is it food poisoning or just that your body is not able digest some kinds of foods?

      OP
      Positive it's food poisoning because I eat everything except the dirtiest street food in Asia/India/Africa

    I got food poisoning from In N Out once. Neopolitan shake in Vegas. Felt the effects within an hour. Don’t get the shake there!

    Missed the first week of Junior high due to salmonella. If you like bloody mucus coming out your ass, you'll adore salmonella. Now that's food poisoning.

    Only once in my life. Bad fish. Thankfully was only horrible pain that progressed quickly into bloody diarrhea and was over in a few hours.

    OP, consider going to the doc if 8+ times a year is a thing for you...you could have a random food allergy or it could be something more serious...

    Food poisoning != an upset stomach or runny trots. And it takes a while to kick in.

    I've got a weak stomach and have a problem after a meal probably every few weeks (sucks less to be me than you'd think. You get used to it.)

    I've had actual food poisoning twice in a 40+ year life and it is way worse. Norovirus once, which was worse still
