VEGETABLES ARE MURDER:

Study finds leafy green vegetables top source of food poisoning (Associated Press, January 29, 2013)

A big government study has fingered leafy greens like lettuce and spinach as the leading source of food poisoning, a perhaps uncomfortable conclusion for health officials who want us to eat our vegetables.

"Most meals are safe," said Dr. Patricia Griffin, a government researcher and one of the study's authors who said the finding shouldn't discourage people from eating produce. Experts repeated often-heard advice: Be sure to wash those foods or cook them thoroughly.

The problem is washing won't do much good; it's the cooking that kills the bad stuff.  Folks just don't cook their vegetables enough.
