Cooking kills everything. 1) Only eat freshly cooked food. The link to the original is included with each item’s title. This is the best way to avoid getting sick due to bacteria or a parasite. Uncooked food will inevitably be washed with contaminated water which will make you go running for the toilet. 2) Don’t eat salads, juices or anything raw. Further research and verification are left to the reader. We check each entry to make sure it is relatively interesting, not patently offensive, and at least superficially plausible.
