Sample text

Sprouts—alfalfa, radish, and clover—are practically a synonym for health food. But since 1995, raw sprouts have emerged as a carrier of salmonella infection. Often the seeds themselves are infected, so no amount of careful handling by you or anyone else will help, and even growing them yourself won’t guarantee that they’re not contaminated. The Food and Drug Administration has this simple advice for people who want to avoid food poisoning from raw sprouts: don’t eat them. Most people will find this a small sacrifice.

Salmonellosis is much more common than listeriosis, but listeriosis is more commonly fatal. 4 million cases of salmonellosis per year in the United States, and 500 people die from it. There are only about 2,500 cases of listeriosis per year, but of those about 500 die. Almost all listeria infections come from food. The disease can be transmitted by an infected pregnant mother to her fetus, but there is no other direct person-to-person transmission. As with many food-borne diseases, the victims are most often under 1 year old or over 55 or have immune systems compromised by disease or medical treatment.

You can gain immunity to these viruses, but it’s not permanent (it lasts about two years), and you’re only immune to the particular strain that you’ve been infected with.
