How many hands have handled those fruits and vegetables from the farm they’re grown until they reached the grocery stacks? If any of those people are sick or have touched something else unsanitary, and the greens are not thoroughly washed, chances are the germs will be transmitted to you. Also, the fruits’ surfaces may already be teeming with microbes from the farm soil, which may have even come in contact with animal feces through leaching. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, listeria has caused the deadliest foodborne illnesses outbreak in almost 90 years among other harmful contaminants like salmonella, listeria, norovirus and E.coli. Also, a certain parasite called toxoplasma can be particularly dangerous to a pregnant woman and her baby. To keep your family safe, it is important for you to learn how to wash fruits and vegetables properly before cooking and consumption.
