haha vegetables dont carry disease? Remember the Taco Bell incidents with Lettuce? Remember the Spaghetti sauce contaminations because of tomatoes?
As long as you rely on mass produced food no matter what it is you worry about that crap.
Well it is not that the veggies have them inside them, it is the fact
that some of them are contaminated with what they use for
fertilizer...feces...so basically its crap on the food...
We keep importing 3rd world food outside the US cause it has a
higher profit margin, but we are also going to start getting 3rd
world health problems.
Common routes of transmission include: unhygienic food preparation, farm contamination due to manure fertilization, irrigation of crops with
contaminated greywater or raw sewage, feral pigs on cropland, or direct consumption of sewage-contaminated water. Dairy and beef cattle
are primary reservoirs of E. coli O157:H7, and they can carry it asymptomatically and shed it in their feces. Food products associated with E.
coli outbreaks include raw ground beef, raw seed sprouts or spinach, raw milk, unpasteurized juice, and foods contaminated by infected food
workers via fecal-oral route.
