A Tunisian man has passed away after taking the actions of Rocky Balboa a fatal step too far.

News reports confirm that Dhaou Fatnassi, a 20-year old from the town of Kairouan, downed these items in order to win an undisclosed amount of money from a friend.

From there, he suffered stomach pains and was transported to a hospital and announced dead on arrival.

Raw Eggs

Many athletes have operated under the assumption for years that raw eggs are an important source of protein.

But doctors also say they interfere with the absorption of the key vitamin biotin.

Moreover, there's the issue of salmonella poisoning, which involves a bacteria that leads to fever, vomiting and, yes, even death. There's an important lesson here for all of us.

Eggs contain a lot of cholesterol but eating one or two is ok as so few does not raise your blood cholesterol. Saturated Fat is the killer. BUT, eating 28 eggs is another matter. The cholesterol hit would be enormous. And arterial blockages can occur anywhere, not just the heart.
