That’s us told…

The Daily Wail has regurgitated a story that has been doing the rounds on the internet for a couple of days, about a man in Tunisia who died in an attempt to eat 30 raw eggs in a single sitting as part of a wager.

There is nothing in the space filler about the cause of death, just that the man was dead before he could be taken to hospital after downing 28 of the eggs.

Nevertheless, Sara Malm, fearless hack for the noted media campaigner against the nanny state, deigns to round off her incredibly short ‘story’ thus:

Whilst eggs cooked properly are a great source of protein and part of a healthy diet, raw eggs could cause food poisoning and may contain salmonella bacteria.

If you are making food demanding raw eggs, such as mayonnaise or ice cream, use pasteurised eggs to eliminate risks.

Well that’s us told, and without a trace of ‘we know best’ hectoring in sight… not!

Perhaps this signals the Mail’s crusade against the nanny state is at an end?  Efforts to discover if Malm is related to Edwina Currie have so far drawn a blank.

    Well our MSM does have a proven track record of jumping to conclusions about causes of death.

    It wasn’t that long ago they were happily blaming 2 x Aussie DJs for the (sad & unfortunate) suicide of a nurse; but slightly reticent in informing their readers that that nurse had previously twice attempted suicide.

    Daily Mail hacks’ imaginations extend as far as their Blue Labour friends will allow.

    I keep my own chickens, half-a-dozen layers and every now and then a dozen broilers.Broilers are slaughtered for meat, layers are slaughtered after two years for stews/casseroles/meat paste. I also keep my own rabbits, they breed like .. well, rabbits and require little other than garden waste for food.
    Both creatures are a very cheap and versatile source of protein. I make my own mayonnaise from fresh eggs, I even make small sticks of very tasty chilli flavoured rabbit biltong, as well as converting Floppsie into some very filling casseroles. I have even experimented with smoked chicken and smoked rabbit. Very, very nice but tedious to make.
    Fcuk those who call themselves out government. I know how to look after myself and my family.

    How does salmonella kill you so quickly – did he die during the attempt or what?
