Fishy Food Poisoning

Be careful what you eat on your tropical vacation.  Ciguatera poisoning is a bizarre condition which can result from eating tainted fish.  Symptoms include:

  • hot things feel icy cold
  • cold things feel burning hot
  • an imaginary sensation of losing ones teeth

What’s more, the effects can be long-lasting.  According to this article in Wired Science, it took one unfortunate tourist 10 months to recover from the effects.
