The Wednesday Slice question

One problem with real life is you can't always send everything to the lab for analysis.

Unlike in TV shows, we are often left to make decisions based on guesswork.

So, when coming down with a temporary gastro-intestinal disorder, there's an understandable temptation to make a mental list of everything you had eaten in the hours prior to your dramatic discomfort and then issue a firm ruling.

“I'm never eating any of that again.”

Often rounding up those suspects involves marking an X through some foods you really liked. But the power of association being what it is, it's usually not difficult to resist those things for a while after your epic bout with digestive upheaval.

But here's my question.

After being turned off certain foods because of their real or imagined link to being sick, how long does it take before you are willing to try them again?
