Some people travel to see different places while some travel to try out the different flavors of different cultures. Some dishes are great, some are bad, and there are also the hazardous. Here are some of the most hazardous food that might make you think twice if you want them in your mouth:
Fugu in Japan
You might be more familiar with the term puffer fish or blowfish. Yes, that cute picture perfect fish you will see underwater can actually kill you if it is not prepared well before it gets to your plate. In Japan, a chef has to undergo three years of intensive training before he is given a green light to serve the fugu dish. A badly prepared fugu can paralyze you and eventually kill you due to the poison tetrodoxin it contains.
Crabs in Latin America
Lovers of sea foods will surely love crabs in the menu but you should know how to cook cabs properly or you will end up with cholera. The same is true for shrimps, mussels, oysters and clams.
Casu Marzu in Sardinia
Casu Marzu is like any other cheese you will find in Italy but this one can actually cause enteric myiasis. And we say what? Google myiasis so you will find out for yourself how fly larvae and maggots can end up in your stomach and intestines. Ingest a good amount of the creepy crawlers and they will end up eating your intestines and linings of your tummy which will cause abdominal cramps and vomiting.
Brain of monkey in Asia
It is not just an urban legend but in some parts of Asia, brains from monkeys are serve. Even the late princess Diana was able to try this in China according to reports. They say it is yummy but there is the danger that you can catch mad cow disease. The virus, which really resides on the brain of the animal, can cause dementia, mental deterioration, and death.
