Well, I am in the hospital for food poisoning.

I posted over the weekend that I was not feeling well and was still had severe diarrhea. I final delivered my load and got back where I work in South Dakota and went to the local clinic. After being checked out by the clinicís doctor, they put me an ambulance and brought me to Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls. This has one of best hospitals in the region. I am very impressed with the nurses and doctor staff. They have manners and know what they do well. I am getting better and pretty sure that I will be released tomorrow. Now, I have to wait for the bill! Yuck! Oh well, Iíll feel better!

22. Humidity doesn't penetrate cans. Heat does. Humidity is immaterial to canned food except rust issues

15. I would think

it's pretty hard to get food poisoning from canned anything, that is, except for botulism. In which case you would have been gone in 24-48 hours......

Maybe some one more learned than I am can weigh in on this.

My best friend is a bio-chem warfare expert and tells me that of all the Biological/Chemical warfare agents out there, mustard gas, nerve gas, Ypestis, bacteria, viruses etc that Botulism is the NUMBER ONE, meshy-ethyl bad shit by far.

Never ended up in hospital though probably should have gone, but food poisoning sucks.

Glad you got help and are feeling better!
