Thought this was interesting... who would have thought fruit was as high as it was.

Fish and chicken are high as people do not cook it properly, or with the fish if it's not fresh it becomes a problem. Also problems with freezing it and defrosting properly. Pork the same. Dairy because people eat it if it's gone a bit off.

Fruits and veg pose a problem when they are not washed properly as could have been contaminated with something else. Also bacteria can live on fruit and veg, plus the fact parasites also live on it. Wash it properly before eating and there is no problem, but of course washing it in clean water is a must, in some countries the water is not clean so washing salad in this can give you illness from the water. So all makes sense really.

We all come in contact with food poisoning at some point.

^^ Yep to all that Stirky said.

And yes, we all come in contact with food poisoning at some point, but sometimes our bodies rid of it without us even realizing.

Also our bodies do build up a resistance to these bugs each time we come into contact with them. People that are obsessed with being too clean and hygienic probably end up being more ill when they do come into contact with something.

Absolutely! And children that grow up in environments that are too clean and that have never had a pet, usually have very bad allergies.

Yes very true, there are more and more children with allergies than ever before. Wrapping children in bubble wrap does them no good.

Yes, my hand goes up. Bit sensitive to a few things, esp. fish. Thankfully no allergies here. Growing up on a farm helps I reckon. Lots of dirt, milk straight from the cow...yada yada yada...

Yeah, with the fruit the issue is pesticides on the fruit that isn't washed off, for the most part. One of the interesting things I've come across is the re-emergence of "Mad Cow" in the US, although it makes sense if you follow the trail.

Cows get ground up for chicken feed. Chickens are messy eaters and a lot of it falls into the litter. Chicken litter is then fed back to the cows as a "nutritional suppliment".
