Re: “WTF: Is "Salad-Bar Syndrome" a Real Thing?

My dad & brother both get instant diarrhea & intestinal distress if they eat lettuce from a restaurant. It's happened enough times to know that's definitely the cause, and it sets in so quickly that it can't possibly be a stomach virus or something picked up from contaminated salad because those things take time to incubate before causing illness. My mom can eat the exact same thing & be fine. These are huge dudes who eat everything you put in front of them but lettuce scares them to death, lol. So I'm guessing a lot of restaurants still use this crap on their salad.

Eating food raw is a bad idea in general, whether it's oysters, lettuce, sushi or fruit. Uncooked food is more likely to contain harmful bacteria or viruses that can cause gastroenteritis. Cooking at least provides some protection against these pathogens.
