By eating food that's been poorly prepared, or prepared from stuff that has started to go bad.

Answer2: Food poisoning can come from a variety of ways: eating perishable items that have been left out of the refrigerator too long after they have become contaminated with bacteria, eating foods not properly handled or cooked at a high enough temperature to kill bacteria, eating fruits, meat, cold cuts etc not washed and handled properly, where hands were not washed properly resulting in bacteria transfer; canned or glass jar goods can have botulism if seal is popped up and they are consumed.
