Bitch please, I've lived in Africa the majority of my whole life without catching major illnesses, contrary to popular belief, there are places on this continent that are clean and safe -.-

They only have so much of it, they have to prepare it right.

Our food isn't synthetic like yours. We have real organic food here. We cook our own, no TV meals with plastic ingredients! So, this comment is just naive. Please educate yourself on Africa before you make silly comments.

My dad went to Equatorial Guinea when I was in fifth grade. He was there for about six months and told me the meat markets there where everyone gets their food, sells monkey meat. Pretty gross!

Yes I have had one before. It was pretty painful for like a few minutes but it calmed down after. It's not that bad IMO. I guess it's different for everyone.

Clearly you haven't had food poisoning properly, maybe just an upset belly. When I last had food poisoning it was coming from both ends at the same time and within 8 hours I was so dehydrated I had to be admitted to hospital on a drip. I hope for your sake you never get proper food poisoning, it's awful!

Africa, like any other country has illnesses. It's got nothing to do with food. If you are anywhere in the world and you prepare it badly, you'll get sick. Clearly. Educate yourselves about your horrible African misconceptions before you pass judgement. I live in Africa and I have never had food poisoning. Yet I got so ill in Singapore? Go figure.

Chill out. It's not even that serious. First of if you're so passionate about Africa you should know that it's not a country but a continent. Nobody is trying to diss Africa so relax and truth be told, sometimes you do get sick from the food prepared because of the unclean water used to prepare it. Ofcourse, there are advance countries in Africa which barely have this problem but OP didn't even say the country in Africa she went to so we can't possibly know whether it was one of the better countries or not.

Ok back up a second... Continent or country... Whatever. You're all missing the point and focusing on what you want to focus on! I live in a COUNTRY within the CONTINENT of Africa. Sue me. I am still eating organic REAL meals. Stupidness? Really? A little rich if you ask me. Point is: misconceptions are dangerous. We may live in a third world CONTINENT or COUNTRY, but that doesn't make us uncivilized!!! Before you point fingers, argue the point and not the typo! FFS!!

Actually, I live In SOUTH AFRICA. A COUNTRY south of the Continent. Get a grip and argue the point please. Or rather don't pass comment, because it's clear you know very little about our country and continent anyway!

hate to say it, but you were probably eating more whole and raw food while there, no? your poor stomach wasn't ready for the civilized corn-feast again here at home. :P

Thank you. We do get "civilized" food in Africa too. Ours is probably much healthier and organic than anywhere else in the world, because it's grown here and exported across to you!! As I said before, educate yourselves on Africa before you make comments implying we are living in the bush!!!! And that we lack civilization!!! Because that shit will get you nowhere in life!!

guess i overestimated FML's ability to recognize scorn and derision. does "corn feast" sound very civilized to you? maybe next time read a little slower and take note of context and tone being used? raw and whole foods are good foe you, as most people know (i hope, anyway). here in the ol' USofA, everything ia made from corn and modified food starch. i would much rather be eating in africa!

31, calm down. No need to get so defensive. Nobody's bashing your continent. Plus I'm pretty sure the point of the comment was that OP had /better/ food while in Africa, probably unprocessed.

Its just that people in the West are too lazy to cook properly, that and they have no training/experience, you watch one show of Jamie Oliver or Barefoot Contessa and you're suddenly a Michelin star chef...
