Meat and seafood are frequently thought of as the sole culprits of food borne illnesses. Indeed, undercooked meat, poultry, and fish can carry bacteria that will make you sick. But recent nationwide food recalls shine light on just how many fruits and vegetables can be dangerous, even deadly. Romaine lettuce, melons, and cucumbers have all been tied to outbreaks of food borne illnesses caused by E.coli and Salmonella. This dinner staple is the biggest culprit of food borne illness.
A recent study says that populations who primarily consume plant-based foods for generations have a genetic mutation, which they believe was developed to make it easier for vegetarians to absorb essential fatty acids from plants. However, this increases production of arachidonic acid, which is linked to inflammatory disease and cancer.
