    Oh no...this is awful. The bad thing about it is that it seems that no one wants to take responsibility for it. Someone is responsible, whether they want to admit it or not!

      There appears to be another case of food poisoning involving school students in the Philippines as at least 350 students in Calamba were hospitalized after showing symptoms of possible food poisoning.

      This report, citing a city health official, says that the students felt dizzy and vomited after eating cupcakes and ice cream.

      This report claims that a total of 438 children were affected and that 37 students remain in hospital for observation, although none are thought to be in a serious condition.

        Unfortunately, poor people typically don't have much of a choice. They can only buy what they can afford to buy. If they can't afford to buy the FDA approved goods, they don't really have any alternatives but to buy these homemade goods. It is a vicious cycle. In a way, it is very similar to the recent alcohol poisoning in India. The poor people can't afford to buy the genuinely produced liquor and so have to resort to buying the illegal moonshine which unfortunately comes with health risks.
        Some poorer people even buy expired goods deliberately knowing that these are not consummable anymore. For them, it is better to eat these than not eat at all. It is quite a sad state living in conditions like this. I pity families who rummage through garbage trash just to have to eat something.

          This is quite alarming as the school's activity is the venue of the poisoning. Although another company lecture is involved, the school should still be held liable because it is under their place when the poisoning happened. The occurence of events like this has been happening quite often in the country. School officials and parents should be discussing how to prevent events like this from happening.

            The harsh reality.Looks like money is really the vital cog to maintain a healthy wheel.
            Yes,but it was well advertised that it will be "fake liquor".(Kalla-Sarayam) its a common name for liquor that is made at home in a pot.
            I don't drink but when i pass through those sides,it smells YUCK.

            These people here buy it and drink their hearts out.Little do they know about the ill effects of this.

              Unfortunately so, and it is the same in every country. Eating healthy can be expensive which makes it very difficult for those in financial hardship to eat well.

              Researchers at Harvard conducting a study last year that revealed it costs approximately $1.50 more per day to eat a healthy diet.
