What If You Swallowed a Jellyfish

Date: 2019-11-25 11:00:10


All over the world, but especially in Asia, jellyfish are a popular food. In fact, so many people swallow jellyfish — on purpose — that the world harvests almost 354,000 tons of them every year! In China, they even raise baby jellyfish in ponds and then move them to the ocean to increase the jellyfish population.

But to swallow Mr. Jelly at the beach is a really bad idea for both of you. Even common jellyfish can make you really sick, and all jellyfish have stingers. You might not think so, because in some, the stingers are too short to pierce human skin. Those ones won’t hurt us. That is … unless you swallow them.
