Does Anybody Eat Raw Chicken?

At dinner the other night, my son asked me an interesting question. Why are beef and other meats eaten rare or even raw, but not chicken? While I pointed out that there is some risk of salmonella poisoning from consuming raw or undercooked chicken, requiring a higher temperature to guard against, the simple reason we don't eat raw chicken is that it is nasty. As an answerer on Quora pointed out in response to this same question, take a raw bite of the best piece of beef and the best piece of chicken you can get. You'll understand. You may not like raw beef, exactly, but the raw chicken will likely make you gag.

Never Eat Complimentary Bread At Restaurants?

I have long seen dire warnings against ordering or eating certain restaurant foods. These warnings come in two main varieties. One, the food is gross and dirty in some way and, two: it is a rip-off and of low quality. One of the most often heard examples is complimentary bread. Chefs, restaurant employees, and others say we should never eat it.

Sick From White Tuna Sushi?

You eat sushi, and 30 minutes to an hour later you have terrible diarrhea, stomach cramping, and maybe even, dare I mention it?…anal leakage. What's more, your stool is orange, oily, and greasy. There is a name for this, believe it or not: Keriorrhea. It is named specifically to describe what is happening because of your sushi meal. Probably, you ordered the white tuna, but it wasn't really white tuna.

The Last Meal I Ate Made Me Sick!

You just had a great restaurant meal last evening and today, you have food poisoning. That restaurant poisoned me, you think. This is a common assumption. Whenever we get sick with something that feels like food poisoning, we assume the culprit was the last meal we ate. This is, in fact, an incorrect assumption. If it were true, the CDC and local health departments would have a much easier time tracking outbreaks of food-borne illness.
