There seems to be so much conflicting information these days about which foods are healthy and which foods you should avoid, that it’s nice to have a little clarity every once in a while.
A food scientist named Jen posted a video on TikTok and talked about five foods she thinks people should avoid.
The foods she talked about are raw oysters, candied apples, quinoa, raw milk, and alfalfa sprouts.
She started with raw oysters and said they “can carry a pathogen belonging to the genus vibrio and cause a disease called vibriosis.”
Jen then moved on to sweet apples and said that the skewers used to pierce the apples can grow bacteria inside and cause listeria contamination.
As for quinoa, Jen said, “I just think it tastes earthy. »
Regarding raw milk, Jen said consuming it can potentially lead to E.coli and salmonella.
Jen also said that alfalfa is grown in conditions that pose a risk of bacterial growth.
She said: “I know a lot of these foods that people enjoy, but I just wanted to be informative. And don’t drink raw milk, it’s literally the only one!
Take a look at the video.
