I have a funny story, a few years back I was in Asia, made a trip through China and Japan, was eating the funkiest stuff (Raw Frog Sashimi, etc) and even people told me the street food in China could be dirty, I went at it anyway. The ONLY time I got really, really sick, was when I ate at Salzeria (it's the equivalent of a Denny's here) ... I had a pasta, wings and pizza ...

After reading all these posts I'm starting to fear going to China later this year for vacation. Fuck the last thing I want to do is be puking all day and night and be bed-ridden. I'd much rather just have diarrhea because at least that's easier to handle and doesn't feel as bad.

With that said, I've never thrown up from bad food before. I've had stomach cramps and diarrhea and lethargy, but never actually thrown up. Is this a good thing or is my body just inefficient at expelling noxious substances from my body (ie. letting it pass through my intestines as opposed to getting rid of it ASAP)?

Just refrain from eating shady places and street food no matter how good it looks. I ate who knows what when i was in china that made me shit like 30 times in a night and vomit every few hours. Worst part is I went go-karting the next day when i thought i was a bit better. Biggest mistake ever. Oh and dont eat KFC like me the next day either.

Lets just say i learned quite a bit last time haha

Saizeria is the nastiest food you could possibly eat in Japan lol.. I'd be more surprised if you didn't get sick from eating there

It's even more ghetto than Denny's in Canada

op's sickness is almost absolutely NOT from fresh slice. op needs to look back the last couple day at what was eaten. maybe something more likely then a slice of pizza baked in a crazy hot oven clearly hot enough to kill all potential bacteria and then assumingly let to rest under some heat lamps that are to code. maybe op cooked some raw meat at home and had some bacteria transfer because op wasn't cooking with proper hygienic techniques.
Not always true. Food poisoning can be caused by viruses, bacteria, toxins, or parasites (among other things).

For bacteria it is true that you won't get symptoms until the bacteria has time to grow to sufficient amounts and on average it might take 12 or more hours, but it's definitely not a strict rule. Some strains and species grow fast, others do not. Some people will also show symptoms faster than others.

Viruses (most commonly norovirus) tend to be faster than bacteria in causing symptoms but again it varies based on the virus and also host response.

For toxins, some of them can cause symptoms within a few hours. Heat might kill the bacteria, but many toxins that the bacteria produce are heat stable and won't be broken down by high temperatures.

Basically, could there be another source for OP's food poisoning? Yes, but you can't rule out Fresh Slice.

Once you've stopped getting the runs or puking, take this thing called florastar or something. You can get it at your local pharmacist, it's bloody expensive but it will replenish all the good bacteria in your intestines. Also replenish on electrolytes, not that gatorade shit which is full of sugar. There are drinks mixes specifically made for ppl that have had the runs. Dehydration can kill.

This Christmas I got super sick, was running a super high fever on top of the runs, it got to a point where I was shitting out large amounts of blood for 2 days, almost fainted...I guess from loss of blood. I was taken in and hooked up on an IV. Go see a doctor.

Everytime I travel to India for work I take two things; Imodium and Gatorade. You're going to get the runs no matter how safe you upon arriving but it usually lasts a day or two, trick is when the first symptoms appear pop a Imodium and drink some Gatorade. Another key is eat light, nothing spicy and no milk products for the first few days and you should be fine. If you start munching on meat right when you land well good luck to you because you'll most likely be regretting it when your ass is on fire for the next few days. Meat, milk products and veggies you have to be careful with when traveling to countries like India and China.

when i used to get food poisoning when i was younger, I tried to keep things in and it would prolong the sickness. Now when i get it on occasion, I drink as much as i can to puke as much as i can to flush my system. After the first day my system is flushed and is like day and night. Not sure this is the BEST clinical remedy, but it works for me with little physical effect.

Curry, all day and all night lol.

But for me I usually start eating meat once my systems adjusted which is a few days into the trip.

Drink as much as you can?

Why not just take a teaspoon of ipecac?

I would be cautious about this and consult a doctor before you do it. Loperamide (Imodium) shouldn't be used for certain bacterial diarrhea, particularly ones that cause bloody stools, abdominal pain and/or fever. And not for children under 3 as well.

PLOS Medicine: Loperamide Therapy for Acute Diarrhea in Children: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

World Gastroenterology Organisation practice guideline:
Loperamide is the agent of choice for adults (4–6 mg/day) — Should be used mostly for mild
to moderate traveller’s diarrhoea (without clinical signs of invasive diarrhoea). — Inhibits
intestinal peristalsis and has mild antisecretory properties. — Should be avoided in bloody or
suspected inflammatory diarrhoea (febrile patients). — Significant abdominal pain also
suggests inflammatory diarrhoea (this is a contraindication for loperamide use)(11)
