Recently, a couple of researchers stated that people should be careful because according to a couple of surveys, food poisoning is becoming a serious issue this spring. There are approximately 48 millions of individuals each year who get sick from some sort of food poisoning from eating some type of meat or some other food that has been already processed.

Another thing that bothers people across the globe is the pesticides that are used in order to make fruits and veggies look larger and eye-catching. The “Environmental working group” sorted out all the fruits and veggies that could be dangerous for you because they have been sprayed with pesticides.

Last year, spinach, mangoes and green salads typical for springtime were the fruits and veggies full with pesticides. This sort of information should not scare you and make you feel like you will never ever add a couple of mango slices in your freshly made fruit salad. It only means that you should be cautious. You should always wash and peel off fruits before you eat them.

Three years ago, one specific research showed something that made people feel uneasy when taking their children in the supermarket. Toddlers can easily take raw meat or some other poultry items from the market shelves without their parents seeing what their kids are doing. Therefore, the researchers who were working on this study gave a couple of useful tips to parents who love taking their kids in the supermarket. They should watch out and see what their kids are doing, because if they get in touch with raw meat or any other seafood item that can easily get sick because the liquids that are coming out from these food items might have some bacteria inside of them that can be very dangerous, especially for young toddlers. Because of that, seafood, raw meat and poultry items should always be put in thick bags and further on the shelves.

Researchers gave some piece of advice to individuals that love spending time in the kitchen in order to prevent spreading of dangerous bacteria that can be found in fruits, vegetables, raw meat and seafood. When you decide to prepare a home cooked meal, you must wash your hands carefully and use a well known antibacterial soap. Also, you should have two different boards for different sorts of foods. For example, you can use one board for cutting fruits and veggies, and the other one for cutting meat and seafood.

You must always use steamy water and some detergent when you are cleaning kitchen supplies and utensils. Also, one thing you must never forget is that all the leftovers should be put into the freezer immediately, because some of the dangerous food bacteria are easily spread at room temperature.
