As reported at Shems FM, a private radio station in Tunisia on the same day, Dhaou Fatnassi, 20, of El Baten, a city in Kairouan, accepted a dare of eating 28 raw eggs in exchange of an undisclosed of amount of money as a bet in front of his friends, and successfully won the challenge.
According to the report, it did not take long and he had severe stomach pains and later collapsed. He was immediately rushed to Kairouan Kairouan Hospital but died halfway. There was no official statement of the cause of death, and local authorities are still conducting a thorough investigation on the incident.
While uncooked eggs can be eaten just like Sylvester Stallone did in his Rocky movie, they can also cause food poisoning since they may be contaminated with salmonella bacteria, which is very dangerous. Medical practitioners suggest that one should not eat raw eggs that already passed the expiration date.
Although a report at MedicalDaily.com says that about every 1 in 30,000 eggs may contain the bacteria, it cannot be detected through smell or by looking at them. Some suggest that bad eggs do not float in water and should not be consumed, while others say raw eggs should be mixed with a little sugar and cocoa powder.
Nevertheless, it is always better to eat cooked eggs instead since they have a lot of health benefits, including protein and good for those under diet. But of course, it is always best to take extra precautionary measures before accepting a challenge.
