eating pinto beans raw - I was at a vegetable stall/market and I saw this woman near the pinto beans and she was kind of eating them from the pods. I asked her about it and she said you can eat them raw, so I bought myself some pinto beans in its pods. Today, I ate them raw from the pods and after that I don't feel well. I feel a chill in my body and just now I vomited some out. I am still feeling nauseous and unwell.
