It depends on the illness. Food poisoning can come from viruses,  parasites, bacteria or fungi, and symptoms vary from short-lived  diarrhea and vomiting to paralysis in some shellfish-borne  poisoning cases. If the poisoning is due to a food other than  shellfish or mushrooms, then no medical...
Very possible, especially if it was still in the can. You'll know very soon though.
Botulism can be the result of food poisoning. It is caused by the  bacteria Clostridium botulinum and causes paralysis of muscles.
It's perfectly safe to eat if thats what you're worried about. Infact there's bacteria everywhere so it doesn't make a difference.
Clostridium botulinum, the anaerobic bacteria responsible for  botulism, produces gases and some smelling substances. So if the  can or the lid are bloated, it's not a good idea eat the content.  The smell (be careful! Don't taste it!) is similar to rancid  butter.
Clostridium botulinum produces a toxin that causes paralysis at  high enough quantities. It does this by blocking the release of  acetylcholine thus stopping nerve impulses.
Body temperature is a good temperature for most food poisoning  bacteria to thrive in. They can multiply quickly and cause illness.
Botulism is nothing but which can be defined as food poison caused  by bacterias which are all growing on improperly sterilized tinned  meats and other preserved foods.

No he did not. He took a Cyanide (poison) pill together with his wife Eva Braun and then they shot themselves through the head to be certain they would die. The Germans then probably burned and/or buried their remains since they have never been found.

Yes. Salmonella causes intestinal and or general illness when eating foods that are contaminated with the salmonella bacteria. The onset of symptoms can begin 7 - 12 hours after exposure and usually lasts 4 - 7 daysSymptoms are Fever, diarrhea, abdominal cramps and headache
no, it is bacteria that is the cause of most food poisonings.
Some probably do from poisonous berries, but even if that does happen, it most likely will only happen once or twice, because then the wild animals learn what happens when they eat that certain food.
it is more likely at home, because people in restaurants always try to avoid having food poisoning cases. while at home you dont really think about it.

No, you get food poisoning by eating food that has gone bad. You don't get it from touching or kissing someone who has it nor by breathing the air near them. It is NOT contagious.
To prevent food-borne illness, washing hands frequently, as well as  washing utensils after each use is very important. Do not use the  same utensils for raw meat, poultry, and seafood as those used for  other foods. Cook food to proper temperatures. Refrigerate or  freeze perishable foods...
I don't really think it's contagious, I think it's just something you can get from dented cans.
