Every year, more than 9 million people come down with a food borne illness and according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) it is more than likely the foods that you are eating every day that are making you sick and not something out of the ordinary.
While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is working hard to enforce higher safety standards on farms, they have linked many of these illnesses to three major areas.
Here are some examples of foods that may in fact be making you sick.
Green leafy vegetables – various strains of E.Coli have been found on green leafy vegetables and according to the CDC study resulted in the highest percentage of illness.
Poultry – diseases in poultry killed the highest number of people in the CDC study, with listeria being the cause.
Dairy – 14 percent of all food borne illnesses were the result of contaminated dairy products, including ice cream and cheese.
