I'm very surprised at the surveys result!!! Luckily we grow our own so at least I know where it is from!!

One piece that's pretty important - know your source. I live in an area with many farms and there are a lot of good farmers out there with very good farming practices. Like every other industry, there are those who cut corners, etc. Also, I don't know why people don't think to wash their food. Perhaps they don't understand the process from harvest to market and the many, many places fruits and veggies can pick up a bug once off the farm. Heck, have you ever noticed how often people pick...

Veggie Val has nailed it correctly. The reason people get sick from spinach is due to the animal feces (Cow Shit to you) that are sprayed on them. There is so much crap being produced by our grossly over inflated, pampered and subsidized agro-industrial complex that they need all the help they can get to find something to do with their waste. That is the reason we got the Mad-Cow outbreak, feeding cows-to-cows (as Oprah Winfrey said). Almost all the diseases we have ever been introduced to...

That is the reason we got the Mad-Cow outbreak, feeding cows-to-cows (as Oprah Winfrey said). Almost all the diseases we have ever been introduced to come from exposure to animals, even AIDS (monkeys). Now it's far worse because those diseases are mutating into super-bugs thanks to the over-use of anti-biotics in animal breeding.

Get this a sheep died upstream from a bar in a foreign country, which took its water from there after chlorination. A Man had a drink with ice in it and got EColi. So think of it. The bugs survived inadequate chlorination, freezing and an alcholic drink and still made him ill! 5 BACTERIA WILL DO IT. WASH YOUR HANDS HERE IN THE UK.

I'm not surprised since many folks don't wash their greens, even ones grown organically. We make a big deal out of how to handle animal products but not as much information about the importance of washing vegetables. Industrial meat production and its waste, though, is an incubator for organisms that wind up in the water and soil that nourish our foods. Lots of ways to look at how we're being poisoned!

ha! I got it right...seems like everytime there is an outbreak it is always a green item. 'tis a surprise...but definitely shows how much care goes into corporate farming...the big benefactors of the farm bill.

Only one comment to this subject today. We the humans have caused the contamination and poisoning and infecting of many life forms on this planet. All life forms and we are destroying daily the life forms needed , to be a planet that is alive. One other thing, we have used and eliminated most natural resources on this planet, we are destroyers of our own habitat.

Please read this article carefully -- It can be misleading if you are looking for a simple answer. We need our greens more than ever, but we need them free of "infected manure", be it from chicken, pig or cow. It's not a specific green or even a specific vegetable that could be a culprit; that was just one of the choices in the teaser of a quiz. Tomatoes are just as likely to spread disease as greens if fertilized with infected manure. Summary: It's the sick, dead animal waste large growers...

BUT, the pathogens in meat cause people to DIE. The ones from veggies cause illness, but usually not death. Something to remember.

Yes Katherine, you are right. And that is the reason why there are no meat eaters on earth anymore. They are all dead. Here we are only the vegans, though sick from our veggies.
I will remember.
