The Truth About Eating Raw Fish.

In Response To: I read that raw fish has parasites! (RivRa)
The truth about eating raw fish is really quite simple. It is just as safe to eat raw fish as cooked fish, provided that the fish is properly prepared. The worms common to all fish are normally killed by cooking. If you purchase fresh fish, take it home, and eat it, without killing any worms that may be present, then you are playing Russian roulette. You can ignore the facts, but the pain you will experience, should you be so unfortunate to have given a new home to one of this little critters, will definitely get your attention.
As I said above raw fish can be safe 'if' properly prepared. In Japan raw fish served by the trained and certified preparers is safe. But, how safe do you think your raw fish is, if your preparer is not trained or certified?
For anyone wishing to be forwarned about eating raw fish or raw meats or even raw eggs, then I'd suggest you go to your library, and read the book by Nicols Fox, call "Spoiled". Times have changed; We must also change, or suffer the consequences.
Bon Appetite, Paul...
