Hey, guess what? I eat pork that’s pink in the middle. I eat burgers cooked medium…sometimes medium rare (even at – gasp! – restaurants). Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been eating leftover pizza that spent the night in a cardboard box on the kitchen counter. And you know what? I get sick maybe once every 12 months or so – and it hasn’t been a digestive problem in at least 5 years.
Correlation is NOT causation, but I do subscribe to the notion that being less fanatical about food sanitation (while not ignoring common sense precautions) makes for a stronger immune system.
