Foods never to eat raw


Raw foods have many beneficial properties, as they contain more vitamins, minerals and enzymes than cooked foods.

Although they are very good for our bodies, they can also be very dangerous, as they can pose some risks to our health, especially in the summer heat. Let’s see what foods should never be eaten raw.

Fish and seafood
aw fish should not be eaten at all unless it has first been blast chilled for at least 24 hours in a -20° freezer.
This process is necessary to eliminate a worm larva, which if ingested can cause allergic reactions and abdominal pain.
In addition, raw fish can cause Salmonella and Staphylococcus, so great care must be taken.
Seafood also carries pathogens, such as E. coli, so to eat it, it must be cooked for at least 10 minutes.

if organic and from pasture-raised hens can be eaten raw, but if they come from hens raised in overcrowded cages, in contact with their droppings and in poor hygienic conditions, then they should be eaten only if cooked.

should always and only be consumed cooked, as the presence of preservatives can cause toxicity and possible contamination of Listeria, a bacterium that causes food poisoning.

, as well as fish, when eaten raw can also pose a danger, due to bacteria and parasites.
Eating beef definitely carries less risk than eating chicken or pork.
If there is a desire to eat a tartare, it is necessary to leave it exposed to room temperature as little as possible to avoid contamination.

Eating raw potatoes can cause bloating and gastrointestinal problems, as they contain starches that are resistant to digestion.
In addition, if potatoes are stored in a hot or humid place they can develop a toxin called solanine, which is harmful to our bodies.

, especially red beans, are also harmful; they contain toxic proteins, which are destroyed only during cooking.
