When your hungry your capable of doing anything to eat. It's basic survival. I'm sure some of the stuff thrown out is only a day or two expired and still relatively edible. I wouldn't do it in my current situation but I can't knock it too much.

"No, because am afraid of disease and or vermin."

Germs, parasites, disease.

If it was all sealed up in factory bags and just thrown out because they were 1 day past expiration; I might.

If you are starving, you will even eat the RATS that are chewing on the dumpster food.
