    Dear Dr. Greger,

    thanks a lot for your most entertaining and informative videos. I'm a food chemist myself, and I love your dedication to the matter.

    In defence of the USDA: E. coli in beef are by all means a contamination. In the case of chicken and salmonella, it moves on the brink of a natural symbiosis between the two. Eggs contain salmonella, pigs eat them, have one hell of a time, and don't do it again. It's an evolved mechanism of protection. After all, chicken don't get sick from salmonella. They have adapted.

    I have immune dysfunction and have been unable to eat commercial eggs for yrs, and sometimes do purchase organic from local farmers.  Well, lately I simply must get eggs back in the diet for the Protein content; so I cut 2-2" pieces from Silver Wire (used for making Colloidal Silver), boil eggs for about 30 min, cool & remove shells, and Zapp from each end of each egg for maybe 30 sec.  I do not suffer any digestive complications from this method.  I also do this zapping for Chicken & Pork hotdogs.

    must be hard for politicians
    one the one hand they want their ppl to be healthy – on the other they want to have high taxes (which is promoted by not screwing with the biggest tax givers that there are….which are the companies :p)
    if they had less money from taxing beef they would maybe have less wealthy/healthy citizens
    its like an unsolvable problem!
    money causes so many of em :/

    Deadly but not illegal? That's weird! It's just what comes with raw meat (particularly poultry and eggs) just cook it and it kills it off!

    I use gloves to prepare, bleach to clean the surfaces and cook until it is dry. Yeah. That is the way I do it. ?
