    Don't get me wrong. This won't change any of my cooking or eating habits because of this. It's just an awareness issue for me -- and unexpected. There have been a couple times in my life where I have gotten some food poisoning and I couldn't for the life of me figure it out. Maybe it was some cracked pepper or other spice -- maybe not. It is neither here nor there really, but the best thing I can do is try to buy spices from quality sellers.

    I'm also a firm believer in exposing kids to germs. I recently read an article where a doctor who was a specialist in contagious diseases recommended NOT having kids wash their hands before meals unless there was something clearly that shouldn't be ingested on their hands. Helpful bacteria that have been living in humans for thousands of years are being slowly eradicated from modern humans, and it is being linked to a host of problems.

    Also, drinking wine with meals reduces your chance of getting food poisoning, and white wine is better than red. This is just one more reason to drink some wine at mealtime.

    Done and done! Not sure if white is better than red, I better have some of each just to be safe.

    I might worry about contaminants if I bought my veggies from this market though.

    Also an argument for a liquid lunch.

    Must be due to the higher acid content.

    Love this one. Looks as though the whole neighbourhood was in on hiding that train. 'Nope, nothing more than a small market here.'

    This article pissed me off. It's really just sensationalizing a non-issue.

    It all comes back to buying from vendors you trust, and living a little. I mean shite, it's pretty amazing we're all alive still, isn't it?

    I think I might lose my mind if I actually see efforts moving forward for spice pasteurization.
