I left my coffee grains and filter for a couple days and when I opened it was filled with mold then when I threw it away a cloud of dust blew everywhere. Disgusting

I made some burgers myself and only noticed after building them fully together and cooking that the bun had some tiny blue spots on it... It's... really great having to throw out $10 of dinner

If I can feel the mold taste is too strong, then I don't eat it. Otherwise it's fair game!

0:17 It’s probably still good... Just gotta scrape the moldy part off and it’s fine to eat.

I ate some cake late at night and noticed in the morning that there were yellow mold dots on it. I will probably be dead soon. Goodbye SciShow.

fun fact, aflatoxin is used to bleach white flour. So while we are throwing out our enzymatically predigested moldy fruit we are scarfing down the most dangerous part in our breads and noodles and cakes etc. It's also interesting that fruit is the sweetest and most delicious where there is a little mold on it, before it goes bad or is overtaken. So... is there some long forgotten symbiotic relationship between mold, fruit and us that used to be part of our healthy immune system or at the very least an addition to our nutrition? I'm thinking yes, and I'm interested to find it.
