Since plants do not defecate, the 'fecal matter' which produces ill-effects has presumably come from elsewhere. It's not the spinach that kills you, it's the process of prdocucing, packing, transporting, storing and merchandising it that introduces filth and dirt. Blame the processors, not the innocent vegetable - and wash it thoroughly before you use it.
Dear Friends only more 39 day's to be left hurry up sign and invite your friends also to sign this.......help us to reach our goalhttp://www.causes.com/actions/1713441-the-sri-lanka-instead-of-rule-of-law-being-in-danger?recruiter_id=186483020&utm_campaign=sharebar&utm_medium=wall&utm_source=fb.
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.
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...

Or human manure--not always disposed of properly.
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!
Keep in mind runoff from factory farms is responsible for the contamination of the leafy greens.
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.
Well, that explains alot....After all if we are what we eat it does help explain the over abundance of sh*t-heads in the world.
BUT, the pathogens in meat cause people to DIE. The ones from veggies cause illness, but usually not death. Something to remember.
sadly, not true
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.
Get rid of your sceptic tanks and water treatment plants. No wonder when we shit in our water it affects our land and subsequently our vegetables. Get yourself a humanure toilet and recycle all your waste. Humanure handbook Jo Jenkins for all info. Love Riv
I thought shellfish...very surprised to see it is greens...In what sense please? Lettuce? kale?
I think its all of them. I even washed the salad bags which say they are washed.
Mostly cut and bagged salads-spring mix, spinach, etc.. the while heads of lettuc3, bunches of kale, collards, etc are usually no the the culprits. And as other have said many times wash your veggies when you get them home. A wash in the packing shed is not the same as washing everything thoroughly, spinning dry in a salad spinner and repackaging (never use the package it came it) and putting in the fridge.
Or buy local as much as possible as the food from small farms is usually cleaner than the industrial food.
