Storyboard Text

  • I sure am hungry, i could use some food right now
  • Oh cool there's still some canned food i can eat. It looks damaged but i think its still good to eat.
  • A while later...
  • Oh no, i don't feel to well i think the canned food made me sick.
  • It was a long day at work and James hadn't eaten all day so he decided to look for some food.
  • I feel so weak and nauseous, i can barely stand up. I think i should go to a doctor.
  • James found some canned food that was a bit damaged but he didn't think nothing of it.
  • You have botulism but it should clear up soon just get some rest and drink plenty of water.
  • Turns out James made a bad decision on eating the food because it contained clostridium botulinum which is a bacteria that gets bigger in the gut.
  • Hey i feel a lot better now.
  • This pathogen causes an illness called botulism. Symptoms are usually abdominal pain,constipation, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, blurred vision, weak muscles, etc.
  • James went to the doctor and told him that symptoms of botulism usually last 1 to 10 days and he would be fine.
  • After James got some rest everything cleared up within a day and now he knows not to eat food from damaged cans.
