Re: spinach

Prunes won't be a problem if they are first washed, then dried in a commercial setting.* Cantalopes maybe (there have been problems in the past - they really should be washed with soap throughly before cutting).

What few of you realize is that porta-potties are relatively new fixtures in agriculture.* In my youth field hands would use informal outhouses at the edge of fields routinely.*

Lettuce was harvested by the head, consumers would remove several levels of leaves and wash well before preparing for the table.* Spinich was cooked not because of sanitary concerns, but because we routinely cooked the food value out of the vegtable (maybe because many of us learned to cook from the English* ).* Our mothers lectured us daily about washing our hands... watch any old health film from the post-WWII period.*

Now we trust much than our parents that raw fruits and vegies don't have bad-nasties.* I recall in the 70s when the daughter of a co-worker almost died from sudden kidney failure, probably from* E coli.

If you have a garden don't plant it over the septic field and make sure your compost got hot before using it in your vegtable garden.

Bad-nasty bugs have always been with us, now modern science can often determine what caused us grief.* Statistically speaking this is not a bigie, but it is tragic for anyone impacted.* So, buckle your seat belt in the car, wash your fresh fruits and vegtables before cutting, wash your hands after using the toilet and before preparing food, don't smoke, exercise regularly, have only safe sex, and hope for the best.

Willie Nelson's public statement regarding being caught with a bag of Marijuana earlier this week:

"It's a good thing I had a bag of Marijuana instead of a bag of spinach. I'd be dead by now."

Great line, but looking at him, I thought he was.
