10 Dirtiest Foods That Can Make You Sick
=========================================

Open your refrigerator. Take a good look inside. Chances are
you have some of the dirtiest-and most dangerous-foods in there.
Eat them and you could get very sick.

Men's Health magazine has identified the 10 dirtiest foods from
bad burgers and dangerous deli meats to hazardous health foods.

The Dirty 10:
1. Chicken: In one study cited by Men's Health, more than 40
percent of chicken samples contained bacteria that can sicken,
including E. coli.

2. Ground Beef: Simply because of the way ground beef is made
through heavy processing, it has the potential to be loaded with
deadly E. coli bacteria and more.

3. Ground Turkey: One in four packages of ground turkey tested
by Men's Health contained bacteria. This becomes a greater
concern as more people substitute ground turkey for ground beef
thinking it's a healthier alternative.

4. Oysters: Beware of raw oysters! Many are tainted not only
with bacteria, but also the Norovirus.

5. Eggs: The incredible edible egg is also associated with more
than 600,000 cases of food poisoning each year and more than 300
deaths. Cook eggs completely and never eat them raw.

6. Cantaloupe: Cantaloupe rinds often contain dangerous bacteria
that are hard to wash away. Cut through that rind with a knife
and the bacteria can be transferred to the fruit.

7. Peaches: This favorite juicy summer fruit is dangerous
because the peach fuzz makes it difficult to clean off all the
pesticides.

8. Pre-Packaged Tossed Salads: These bagged salads are one of
the greatest conveniences of the past decade, but they can also
be one of the biggest sources of food poisoning since the
contents are often contaminated with E. Coli, according to Men's
Health.

9. Cold Cuts: It looks like delicious shaved ham or turkey to
you. But it could contain the dangerous bacteria Listeria,
which is especially risky for infants and the elderly. Listeria
can be spread by the deli slicer, and it can even grow in a cold
refrigerator. What can you do? Experts advise you to transfer
the deli meat to a fresh package when you get home and only buy
enough for one week at a time.

10. Scallions: If these green onions are left uncooked, they
have the potential to become bacterial breeding grounds.
They've also been linked to fatal outbreaks of Hepatitis-A.

Geez, it's like those little bacteria buggers are EVERYWHERE! Oh, wait...they are! An article like that could make you afraid of food, if you believed that things are as awful as they seem...

Sniff test everything. If it don't smell right, toss it. The rest of that stuff is either killed in cooking, or not at all dangerous in small amounts. In fact a lot of those bacteria are there because of some handling or environmental interaction with humans. They occur naturally in the human body.

A few ordinary bacteria won't hurt you. In small amounts, they don't have time to reproduce enough that they generate significant levels of toxins in the human body. Now, if you eat el-cheapo ground beef, or poop by the spoonful (sort of the same thing...), that's a different story. Equally, eating foods with well established colonies of the various bacteria introduces enough bacteria into the human system that the toxins they produce will have a physiological effect (the most common of which involves rapid/explosive liquid discharge from one end or the other...'nuff said).

Keep raw and leftover foods in the refrigerator. If it smells rotten, don't eat it. If the color isn't right, don't eat it. If it has fur that isn't usually expected to be there...don't eat it. Cook meats and eggs thoroughly, unless you are darned sure they are 'clean'. Wash fruits and veggies, and don't keep them for more than a day or so once you have broken the outer skin.

Gee, does any of this sound like stuff you mother/grandmother told you?

Hmmmmm I wonder if Skwirrells are safe?
No matter after I skin em and wash em I thoroughly brown the meat before they go into my stew pot!!!

Why wasn't pork on the list? It seems to me that I heard if ya don't cook it right you might get a Tape Worm.
