Default Old food

I just discovered some beef sticks, I ordered online before Christmas last year, opened in a the bottom of the junk bowl in the kitchen (a larger bowl where you throw junk, pens, envelopes, change, knick-knacks what ever has no real place to be) that was opened.
No mold, at least not big enough to see.
So I ate them.
Now my taste buds are mostly gone, nowadays, so I taste mainly sweet , sour and spicey with what normally would be called after-taste (sadly does not stop me from eating more than I really should, including a couple of dozen chocolate chip/ pecan cookies I baked),
Well first one, now I can still sense the off taste of moldy bread, etc. and I tasted a bit of off taste, so I trimmed the ends off which looked a bit too grey, and at the other six.
Not bad and I still could taste the slightly spicy heat.
I wonder if moldy food kill viruses.
Due to how quickly Walmart bread molds, I have eaten a fair amount of slightly moldy bread this winter.

I figure if it does not hurt the squirrels that eat it, though if too moldy, even they let rot away, it isn't going to hurt me.

Yeah, and if he keeps doing it he's probably not going to have any worries about c-virus.

Penicillin was discovered as a mold IIRC

Sir Alexander Fleming, a Scottish researcher, is credited with the discovery of penicillin in 1928. At the time, Fleming was experimenting with the influenza virus in the Laboratory of the Inoculation Department at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. It all started with a mold that developed on a staphylococcus culture plate. Since then, the discovery of penicillin changed the course of medicine and has enabled physicians to treat formerly severe and life-threatening illnesses such as bacterial endocarditis, meningitis, pneumococcal pneumonia, gonorrhea and syphilis.

Yes but I'm certainly not going to try to discover another by eating them. Bob's on his own with experimenting.
