Lots of foods sound safe, but they could be hang-outs for trouble-making bacteria. Let’s say you are on a summer picnic and you left the potato salad out for hours, or you did the same with tuna burgers, or the salad bar you attended didn’t have fresh veggies.
There’s lots of ways you can get bacteria into your mouth. If you have long fingernails and get dirt under them, if you take kids to a petting zoo, county fair, or they play where animals have left their droppings, they are all possible places for unfriendly bacteria.
Add E. coli killers to your food
Adding one tablespoon of pureed prunes to each pound of hamburger meat can kill more than 90% of any E. coli present according to folk remedy sources.
Two to five teaspoons of garlic will kill the bugs too.
Other spices known to kill E. coli are cinnamon, oregano, cloves and sage. Season your meat with these for extra flavor and protection.
If you think you’ve eaten “bad” food,
Pour yourself a tall glass of mineral water and stir in 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar. The vinegar could kill the bacteria before it’s too late.
