You should never eat raw oysters! Bill Marler, an American lawyer who is an expert in food-poisoning lawsuits, simply doesn’t eat certain foods anymore, and he has good reason not to do so. Having won hundreds of millions of dollars for his clients in such cases, Marler says he was convinced to never eat raw seafood again.

Raw shellfish has become a favorable breeding ground for several new harmful species of bacteria due to the warming up of the water. You need to avoid eating raw seafood, especially shellfish. Instead, you can eat baked oysters with spices, it’s tasty and without harmful bacteria.

When fruits and vegetables are contaminated with disease-causing bacteria, consuming their juices can easily result in foodborne illnesses. Even though pasteurization eliminates these harmful bacteria, juicing does not, and unheated homemade juices can lead to diseases.

If you want a fresh drink, you should opt for pasteurized juices instead. But if you want all the vitamin health and nutrients that a fruit has to offer, the, you should simply eat fresh fruit.

Rare meat may be delicious or even fancy, but it can be very dangerous for your health because any cooked meat at a temperature below 71°C/160°F don’t kill the deadly bacteria contained in meat, including salmonella and E. coli.

What you should eat instead is well-done meat, or at least medium-well. Place any uncooked meat away from other foods. Make sure to wash your hands immediately after contact with uncooked meat, as well as any surface or dish that touched the raw meat.

Also, wrap cooked meat well if you want to store it in the freezer or refrigerator. Do not eat any food that has been exposed to room temperature for over 2 hours.

Salmonella and E. coli can be found in this food much more often than you may think, so it’s highly important to be aware that the grains we can actually consider healthy are the ones that haven’t been chemically treated. However, it can be very difficult to check whether there have been any chemical treatments involved.

Instead, you can consume grains that were safely sprouted or raw seeds, such as sunflower, pumpkin, and flax, which can contain similar nutrients and health benefits.

5. Fresh Milk

Fresh milk seems extremely healthy but the conditions in which it is extracted can be anything but sterile, yes, even if the owner is taking really good care of the cows. So there are high chances that the milk includes bacteria and viruses, which can only be killed through boiling.

Avoid drinking milk unless it’s boiled or pasteurized. Although some people believe that pasteurization decreases the nutritional value, it is not dangerous, while raw beverages can be, as neglecting this safety rule can only mean more risk of contamination by parasites, viruses, and bacteria.

Spanish scientists from the University of Seville have recently discovered that cooking freshwater fish destroys only 18% of life-threatening cyanotoxins. Well, where does the remaining percentage of these dangerous substances go? They enter the broth, making it a concentrate liquid of toxins.

Instead, you should always make steamed fish instead. In fact, the scientists’ experiment showed that this way of cooking can kill 26% of cyanotoxins.

8. Meat Products

According to many American studies, meat products (even the most expensive and quality ones) consist of nitrites and nitrates, which both can cause cancer. In fact, 1 kg of sausage consists of 50% more fat and 400% more salt than the same amount of beef.

Try to limit your intake of meat products and completely avoid sausages. Instead, choose homemade jerky meat, which can be accompanied with some bread and butter.

9. Packaged Food

Packaged food can be very dangerous because manufacturers use BHT (butylhydroxytoluene) and BHA (hydroxyanisole) as preservatives in almost every product. The bad news for your health is that these substances cause hormonal disorders if consumed in large doses. Moreover, regular ingestion of BHA put you at greater risk of developing cancer tumors.

Instead, make sure you only purchase canned goodies or only eat food that you made at home. If you have enough time, it could be even better to cook fresh homemade meals every day.

10. Pre-washed and Sliced Veggies and Fruits
