4 Foods to Worry About

Orlando, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Assuming everything we find in a grocery store is safe to eat can be a big mistake. One in six Americans get sick each year from a foodborne illness. And about 3,000 people die each year from one. Here are a few foods we should stay away from.

Some of these foods can make you sick; do you know which one’s put you most at risk?

First, bagged salad usually says washed, but it can be risky because of bacteria and contamination. Don’t rewash bagged salad because it can lead to cross-contamination of bacteria.

Next, eating too much rice could possibly lead to cancer. Rice contains a high amount of arsenic which is a carcinogen. Brown rice has even more arsenic.

Also, farmed salmon could be contaminated and shouldn’t be eaten more than once a month. It has up to 10 times higher levels of PCB’s and chemicals than wild salmon.

Raw beans sprouts often times are contaminated with salmonella and E. coli. The safest way to eat them is to boil or stir-fry them.

The leading causes for foodborne deaths, hospitalizations and illnesses are salmonella, toxoplasma, listeria and norovirus. But by following some of these tips you could eliminate some of the risks.

Also avoid meat glue. Anyplace that serves meat that looks exactly the same most likely contains meat glue. It increases the risk of food poisoning, so if consuming it make sure to decrease the risk by eating it well done.
