I feel that this explanation accounts for 95% of the "food poisoning" my friends claim to experience at places they just didn't really want to go to in the first place...

What? Avoid Chinatown? No way!! I'm white, have never felt unwelcome. No, people may not be smiley, but that's true throughout the city. Love Chinatown. You don't find mall Chinese food there, but that's the point.

You have to let go of your preconceived notions and enjoy the diversity.

Hey guys, if you somehow affiliated with China town business of have friends there, or may be you are a Chinese and you feel insulted (please don't) you don't need to post nonsense here:
I NEVER gave any time-frame when I felt sick, I just said "soon", so please stop giving me your diagnoses here, I'am a grown up man and do know when I got bad food.

NE food standards are generally much lower than California (as most other standards), so everybody have a higher chance to get poisoned here unfortunately. This is especially true when it comes to cheap Chinese places: I have a friend in restaurant business in NJ and he said Chinese are well known to buy the cheapest and thus lowest quality food supplies they can find to be competitive.

My experience with food poisoning is it occurs pretty much as soon as you get done eating. Within minutes to an hour depending on the bug or allergy.

Food poisoning can be anything from mild stool softening to nonstop puking/defecating to death.

As much as I love them, I have definite susceptibility to scallops. My wife got such severe food poisoning in Mexico that she lost 12 pounds. She looked great afterwards tho!

Sometimes I think these kinds of "food poisoning" may not be poisoning at all - but in fact cleansing. I wonder if something if something as natural as seafood actually detoxs us of all the GMO processed crap we ingest otherwise.

Yeah sure. The west coast simply has more Asians and fresher food. California has the best farm fresh produce in America. But yeah, Beantown is by no means the bottom of the heap. Everything seafood based in the Hub whips Dallas in every way. Especially the sushi. But certainly not LA.
