Man dies in a 50-egg eating bet with a friend

Bets between friends or family members are quite common. Anything and almost everything under the sun can be considered as the subject of bets, may it be the life of characters on TV, mom’s shirt color, or who eats more food, just anything random will do.

However, this man’s bet with his friend has all gone south after it led to an unfortunate ending. The man has died attempting to eat 50 eggs to settle a dispute with a friend.

According to, the two were seen visiting the Bibiganj market area in Uttar Pradesh’s Jaunpur district, in India when they began arguing.

As it seemed impossible for the argument to be settled through words, they tried to resolve it in another way. That is, the first one to eat 50 eggs in one sitting will win money amounting to Rs2,000 (£22).

Police say that the man whose name was Subhash Yada had just begun eating his 42nd egg when he collapsed and fell unconscious.

The 42-year-old was rushed to hospital but died just hours later. Doctors believe Mr Yada died from overeating. However, his family has refused to comment on his death.

As they say, too much of anything is never good and everything should be taken in moderation. Everyone is in control of their own life. So, may Mr Yada’s experience be an awakening to everyone to always think about their own health first before deciding to agree on something that may cause them harm. After all, it is still better to be extra cautious than being sorry in the end.
