Sounds like a good way to get some E. coli O157:H7 into you. The absolute risk is probably quite small but the outcome if you did get food poisoning can be serious. E. coli O157 only evolved in the 1970's so it is not a bug that our ancestors had... (more)

The risk (parasites) seems greater than the reward (undefined) in this situation.

A true statement would be that cooked food is simply somewhat less enzymatically reactive than raw food. Somewhat. At 114-120??F, proteins/enzymes denature, before renaturing when cooled (i.e. edible temperatures). A slab of steak doesn't... (more)

Probably a little sketchy. I would sear at least. Opt for something a little more 'local' (at least in the same country) if you can find it if you want to eat it raw... Check out this site: http://www.seachoice.org/fish/mahi-mahidolphinfish/... (more)

Kefir should not taste yeasty or disgusting. It should have a creamy texture -depending on the proportion of culture added to milk-, it should have a fairly tangy taste and a fulfilling sensation upon ingesting it. Having said that, we shouldn??t... (more)

I eat raw eggs on occasion -- usually 3-8 cracked into a glass, and chugged. Avidin will definitely bind to biotin - it's extremely "biotin hungry". Biotin is water-soluble and actual DRI is extremely low. Basically, everyone gets enough biotin... (more)
