Hi there… There is something I’d like to ask. I ever heard that it is not okay to eat soft boiled eggs since it may still contains bacteria. Is that true? I love soft-boiled eggs. In a day I could consume 2 soft-boiled eggs. Thanks at advance for the explanation.
Besides the fact that eggs are high in cholesterol, they should also be fully cooked. Like any other food, if not cooked thoroughly bacteria can survive and infest the host.
Prepare everything in a good way is the best thing we could do once we plan for dinner. For the best deal it would be better to cook the food ourself.
We should be very careful in handling our food to prevent this occurrence.
There can also be contamination through bird seed or different grades of feed for animals
Food safety is a big topic now in China. Because there were some food safety scandals happened here, people started worrying about we are going to meet more food safety problems. The best way to avoid dirty food and chemical spice is to make our own food. Most of my friends are cooking more at home. This can protect us from food poisoning and also save lots of money eating out.
