It depends on the illness.

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 thebacteria 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 forbotulism, produces gases and some smelling substances. So if thecan 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 rancidbutter.
Clostridium botulinum produces a toxin that causes paralysis athigh enough quantities. It does this by blocking the release ofacetylcholine thus stopping nerve impulses.

Cases of foodborne botulism often come from home-canned foods with low acid content, such as asparagus, green beans, beets, and corn.. Clostridium botulinum bacteria is anaerobic, which means it can survive and grow with little or no oxygen. Therefore, it can survive very well in sealed containers....

Bacteria can breed in Mayonnaise that has been opened but not refrigerated, or not returned immediately to the refrigerator. Ingesting bacteria can cause food poisoning, so yes, Mayonnaise (ALL brands) can cause food poisoning if not stored properly.
This question doesn't give us enough information to know what you are asking. Are you saying an egg you got out of your refrigerator was warm before cooking it? If so, please say so in your question.
You can't, but you have choice not to eat it. Just like people have a choice not to eat fast food or junk food.
Nothing serious, I'd say go for it. It's pretty much what St. Patrick did with the snakes in Ireland and he's considered a saint now, so it will probably turn out well for you too.
Plenty of rest and water with electrolytes.
Salmonella is a concern, especially regarding food preparation and handling, because it can make people extremely ill, or worse depending upon the individuals circumstances.
There is not a huge effect but it can taint the overall taste of the food.
The most common effect is an awful case of food poisoning or sometimes you can catch a parasite we all know as pin worms or tape worm. Very nasty stuff!!
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.
Salmonella, Listeria, E.coli O157, Campylobacter. The major one would have to be salmonella because it has the least time for the incubation period.
Yes it can. If it is particularly bad then it tends to happen earlier.

It is important to have safety programs in restaurants, so peopledo not get sick. Safety programs ensure that food workers do notcross contaminate food surfaces.
The main food poisioning you can get from eggs is salmonella. This is well known and can cause, vomitting, severe stomach pains and in some cases constipation and diorreha.
It is not 'regulated' as, for instance, narcotics and scheduled drugs are regulated, but it is a highly dangerous poisonous substance and it's sale and use is monitored and tracked.
samenella,gastroitis and many more can be cause.

Many people re-heat left-overs with no negative effects. You cannot get food poisoning from simply re-heating food, unless the food had already been breeding bacteria. Bacteria breed when foods are left out of refridgeration too long, or if a frozen item partially unfrozen at room temperature and re...
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.
The time one gets sick depends on what they have eaten and on the person themselves. this time is in the period of 3 to 36 hours.
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.
