Your Future In-Laws are the Most Likely to Poison You

If you’ve ever had food poisoning, you know that it is exactly the opposite of awesome.  Mild cases are anything but, and serious cases could actually kill you!  Luckily, it’s pretty easy to avoid as long as you check to make sure your food is properly washed and cooked.  Unfortunately, that isn’t always an option.

According to CNN, new research shows that you are most likely to be on the receiving end of a case of food poisoning at the hands of your future in-laws.  Researchers in Norway surveyed more than 1900 adults on the perceived consequences of not eating the food they are served.  The data suggests that when we find ourselves at the dinner table with our future in-laws for the first time, we are less likely to listen to our own good judgement about questionable food and more likely to eat something less than appeasing in order to protect someone’s feelings.

It wasn’t just trying to impress your sweetie’s family, the research found a similar reaction based on empathy.  As in, you think it might hurt someone’s feelings if you don’t act like you enjoy it.  Dining with your boss, eating your wife/husband’s first attempt at a meatloaf, and company potlucks are ground zero for food poisonings too, due to this societal pressure.

I guess the overall point is this:  Your in-laws aren’t trying poison you (probably), they’re just terrible cooks.
