How long does it take for bad food to make you ill?

At just about 11:15 today I ate a salad with egg in it at school. At the end of the next period, I felt like I was going to throw up. So here I am at home, suffering. Was the salad the offending food?

It could have been. Everyone's body reacts differently. I've eaten bad food before and instantly gotten sick wear I could not lift my head from the bathroom. I have had it happen almost instantly and other times wear I have had food poisoning it took several hours before I got sick. I think it just varies on what you ate, and how much you ate along with how your body reacts to it. Hope you feel better soon :)

For bad food to make you ill, it will depend on the person or the extent on how the food is bad. The bacteria in the food grow in your intestines and make you ill after 2 or 3 days.
