When we choose healthy food in the supermarket, we hope to buy something useful for ourselves and our family. But research shows that even the most ordinary foods can be dangerous.
We have made a list of foods that can harm your body and found ways to avoid the issues and enjoy all the tasty foods you like.
The scientists from the Center for Science in the Public Interest have analyzed statistics for the past 12 years. They were trying to figure out which foods led to the highest number of cases of food poisoning. Lettuce turned out to be number one. It was responsible for 363 outbreaks with 13,568 known cases of poisoning. So even if lettuce is well-packed and “ready to eat,” it’s better to wash it really well before you put it on your plate.
The salmonella infection that can get on eggs from the excrement of an infected chicken can be dangerous, especially for children, the elderly, and people who have a weak immune system. If you see that the shell is not perfectly clean, it’s better to spend one minute washing the egg before making scrambled eggs and feeding the entire family.
