Many people love eating some foods raw and they enjoy it without knowing the health risks or maybe they choose to ignore the health risks of eating such uncooked foods. Whether you’re eating foods that are served raw (like sushi) or are just fun to eat that way, here’s what to watch out for. Let’s start with Sushi.
SUSHI is made with lean fish, vegetables, and avocado, sushi can be a good way to get vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. But sushi can have bacteria and parasites like anisakiasis, which can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach pain.
Small children, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and people with immune issues should skip raw or undercooked fish. Everyone should also avoid fish that could be high in mercury, like swordfish, bigeye tuna, and shark.
