If the food has been there for a while, scraping off the fuzzy mold doesn't make the food good. The fuzzy part is only the spores and dispersal structures, the vast majority of the mold is the hyphae that has probably worked it's way all the way through the foodstuff. It's also notable that decomposing molds produce very potent toxins, for example, the mold that grows on the shells of peanuts and the outsides of other legumes and nuts, is the source of the second most potent carcinogen known to humans, the number one being dioxin. In addition, flies, such as Calliphora and Muscidae flies, home in on fresh organic matter, and have very promiscuous feeding habits. Calliphorids and Muscids tend to be born and raised in feces, and have been shown to be competent vectors of a wide variety of pathogens, such as dys<span>y</span>ntery, typhus and other gastrointestinal illnesses. And if that doesn't discourage you, whatever microbes and germs that are already in the dumpster can easily transfer themselves to any foodstuffs inside, and especially if you're diving in the suburbs, realize that people not only toss food, but soiled diapers, used tampons and plenty of household chemicals not fit for consumption in the same trash can.

In addition, flies, such as Calliphora and Muscidae flies, home in on fresh organic matter, and have very promiscuous feeding habits. Calliphorids and Muscids tend to be born and raised in feces, and have been shown to be competent vectors of a wide variety of pathogens, such as dys<span>e</span>ntery, typhus and other gastrointestinal illnesses. And if that doesn't discourage you, whatever microbes and germs that are already in the dumpster can easily transfer themselves to any foodstuffs inside, and especially if you're diving in the suburbs, realize that people not only toss food, but soiled diapers, used tampons and plenty of household chemicals not fit for consumption in the same trash can. This isn't to say that diving for dinner is going to kill you. Just that it ''may'' make you very sick. </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 88: </td> <td> Line 88: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Thankyou so much Kirsten for pointing that out.

I think dumpster diving for (most) clothes, furniture, and other non-foodstuffs is definitely safe - though some things like soiled clothes are questionable; my mom always chided me on that one when we shopped at thrift stores. People make it sound like dumpster diving for food is all good, when it probably isn't. Businesses probably throw away most food ''for a reason,'' like maybe that a food has gone expired or is growing mold on it. Dumpster diving for some foodstuffs that are still in it package and are manufactured to have a very long shelf-life, like candy, will probably be your safest bet. Other food items are more questionable and I think people should be more discerning.<br> + Hey, I know we're a wasteful society that makes way too much food for its people and then throws it away - but that does not mean we should eat food that could cause serious illness. If you want to be resourceful with food, there are safer, better ways of doing it. Just because our society is stupid does not mean you have to be stupid. --["ArielaHaro"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Dumpster Divinghttp://daviswiki.org/Dumpster_Diving2006-05-21 13:29:31ArielaHarocomment <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Dumpster Diving<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 41: </td> <td> Line 41: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * If you're dumpster diving for pornography magazines, you're cheap ''and'' pathetic. --["ArielaHaro"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Dumpster Divinghttp://daviswiki.org/Dumpster_Diving2006-05-20 15:30:02PhilipNeustromdivider added <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Dumpster Diving<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 74: </td> <td> Line 74: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> - Although dumpster diving for furniture, clothes and other non-perishable items is all good, I find the idea of dumpster diving for food dangerous.

Diving around places that actually produce/resell food versus restaurants will probably yield the best quality, e.g. bakeries, grocery stores. Fast food places regularly toss anything that doesn't sell that day, candy stores sell a product that doesn't really go bad, and movie theaters regularly toss giant bags of popcorn. And if you're diving the burbs, you can score when freezers get cleaned or canned products get tossed on moving day.<br> + *'''Bookstores'''<br> + When paperbacks and magazines don't sell, the covers get ripped off and sent back to the publisher for a return credit. If you're looking for material for your toilet/library, check behind these places. And don't forget that music stores carry music mags that can be enjoyable potty reading.<br> + *'''Discount stores'''<br> + Cheapie places like The Dollar Tree toss lots of empty boxes from which you can construct a three-season shelter. Most students opt to hit up mom/dad for rent money, but in a pinch... These places, including ["Longs"], regularly toss slightly damaged/returned goods and plants that they've very nearly killed.<br> + *'''Toy/novelty/thrift stores'''<br> + Success in this arena is a long shot in Davis, but don't forego the dumpsters behind Davis' few high end baby, toy, and novelty stores... if you can drive a real car that's been beat to sh*t, you can certainly play with a beat up toy car! On this note, don't forget your neighborhood ["thrift stores"] or consignment shops - after a while, some things just aren't worth the real estate cost for retailers.<br> + *'''Florist shops/funeral home'''<br> + Perhaps little more than a cut above stealing them from the ["Davis Cemetery"] or somebody's yard, check out the dumpsters behind one of Davis' florist shops for slightly damaged and wilted flowers. If you aren't too afraid, look behind the funeral home after services to see what's gotten tossed once the widow has gone.<br> + *'''Copy stores'''<br> + Copy shops occasionally toss lots of slightly defective office supplies such as boxes of envelopes that don't quite seal.<br> + *'''Photo developers'''<br> + These dumpsters just make good entertainment. Imperfect and often risqué photos are tossed in damp, chemical-laden bags. Find out what your neighbors have been up to when the curtains are shut!<br> + *'''Organizations of Evil'''<br> + I guess the university might fall within this category, and it certainly does provide ripe pickins' for books, interesting papers, old computers/software/lab equipment, and the like. But perhaps more importantly, you can find some great information in dumpsters of organizations such as ["Davis College Republicans"], ["Fraternities"], etc.</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 18: </td> <td> Line 33: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * T<span>he dumpster behind ["Borders"] often has stripped boo</span>ks.<br> <span>-</span> *<span>&nbsp;The dumpster behind ["Tower Records"] has stripped porno mags.<br> - * There are a lot of dumpsters on ["Campus"].<br> - * The</span> [http://pom.ucdavis.edu/ Department of Pomology's] compost bin between ["Wickson Hall"] and ["Wellman Hall"] is usually filled to the brim with fresh fruits and nuts.
