You must never ingest rotten meat. True or False?

Answer False

We are generally squeamish about rotting or rotten food, but in fact, we can eat most of it without any ill effects whatsoever. We are accustomed to thinking about 'bad' meat as what might happen in the supply chain of a store. That process is entirely different (and indeed quite dangerous) compared to rotting meat found in the wild, like say a recent kill by a predator. In the wild, I have eaten lots of rotting food without issue.
