We’ve all done it. We get Chinese food. We eat it. We can’t finish it since the order is usually large enough to feed a small army. So, we put it in containers and save it for later. Everyone eats leftovers. For one 19-year-old, a night of eating Chinese leftovers nearly killed him. In what is being called a medical “perfect storm” of events, a massive infection soon followed which led to the loss of limbs, multiple organ failure, and a heinous skin rash. This Chinese leftover tale from hell was documented in The New England Journal of Medicine. A simple meal of rice, chicken, and lo mein set off this near-death experience. In the end, the person lost his legs and fingers (via NY Post ): Dr. Bernard Hsu, a licensed toxicologist, described how the young man became severely ill after eating tainted leftovers, including lo mein, chicken and rice.

The teen’s case was first reported in March 2021 in The New England Journal of Medicine, which detailed how he was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital as he was suffering from “shock, multiple organ failure, skin mottling, and a rapidly progressive reticular rash.”
“The patient had been well until 20 hours before this admission, when diffuse abdominal pain and nausea developed after he ate rice, chicken, and lo mein leftovers from a restaurant meal,” the outlet said.
He underwent blood and urine tests and was diagnosed with a bacterial infection called Neisseria meningitidis, which caused his blood to clot and his liver to fail.
His skin necrosis was said to be caused by “purpura fulminans,” a severe complication of meningococcal septicemia.

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
