Mass Effect (Shadowrun 4th ed)
Avoiding food poisoning
The universe is filled with lots of things you can eat and trillions of things that shouldn’t.
The most common mistake a new traveler can make is to eat something without checking if their species can ingest it. Most sapient species ingest food based of off levo-protein and a few need food based off of dextrose-proteins. For turians and quarians which are dextro-protein species of reverse chirality from humans and asari. The food of levo-protein races such as humans or asari is at best inedible and at worst poisonous, most likely triggering a dangerous allergic reaction. If you are a Krogan this is only a minor issue. You bastards can eat almost anything.
