Healthy? Not So Much

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

I know a number of people who are vegans and eat things like bean sprouts, hummus, and tofu. I hope they’ve been watching the news lately. German agricultural authorities said bean sprouts probably caused the recent E-coli bacteria attack that killed people in Europe and made many others very sick.

The Germans said they tracked down the outbreak to one farm where an employee tested positive for the disease. They closed the farm and also said consumers should avoid eating raw lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers because 95% of all patients infected with E-coli ate one of those three things.

I recommend you stick to burgers, fries, popcorn, potato chips, and pizza.  Hell, if kids don’t like vegetables, why should you?
