The Fruit I Ate Had Maggots, But I Didn’t Know What To Eat Or Not?
Assakamualaikum! NSorry, I want to ask if I am 7 months pregnant, I just ate fruit, when I saw maggots, I was afraid someone would be eaten …
Hello Siti, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Accidentally eating maggots on the fruit likely won't cause any side effects on your body. The human body has an incredibly powerful defense system, as well as your digestive tract. Your stomach has stomach acid which has a very high level of acidity which can kill most of the bacteria and other microorganisms that enter the stomach, and most likely will also kill the maggots that enter your stomach.
Things that might happen from eating food that is rotten or not clean is an infection in the digestive tract that causes you to experience diarrhea, abdominal pain, or nausea and vomiting. If you experience these symptoms, make sure you drink plenty of it and if the symptoms are severe enough, you can consult directly with your obstetrician. If you don't have any symptoms, then you have nothing to worry about.
Going forward, make sure you pay closer attention to the food you eat. Eat food that is guaranteed cleanliness and always pay attention to food expiration dates. Before eating cooked food, also pay attention to the smell and taste of the food, if it does smell or taste strange, you shouldn't eat it.
