Clinical dietician provides information on mould

Rudo Tshabalala, a clinical dietician, explains that mould mostly comes from the environment, particularly the air.

"The yeast used to make bread itself has natural growing organisms, as well as wheat flour. The bread we buy has mould spores, and given the right conditions, such as moisture and ample time, mould spores will thrive and populate."

The expert also stated that consuming mouldy food can be dangerous or life-threatening for individuals who are allergic to it or those who have a compromised immune system (such as young children, the elderly and people who are receiving cancer treatment).

Rudo adds:

"For healthy individuals, eating more than a few bites can result in symptoms of food poisoning such as diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting which can lead to electrolyte imbalance, dehydration and hypoglycemia.

Man causes a scene at Chicken Licken

In a related article, Briefly News reported about a man who caused a massive scene at Chicken Licken in Johannesburg, which astonished many people online.

@stunner401 shared the footage and stated in her caption that the guy caused a scene because one of the workers at Chicken Licken informed him that he was not allowed to bring outside drinks into the eating establishment. He brought along a bottle of water with him.

It was difficult for the man to comprehend, and he began to cause a fuss in the restaurant.
