Red Meat = Increased E-coli Risks

PARIS (AFP) — A steady diet of red meat makes the body more susceptible to a virulent form of intestinal bug that can cause bloody diarrhoea and even death, according to a study to be published on Thursday. Researchers in the United States and Australia said persistently eating red meat appears to prime the body for exposure to this potent form of Escherichia coli (E. coli). Most outbreaks have been traced to undercooked ground beef tainted with fecal matter post-slaughter. http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5hD4xw9vpC-tinE71PcFF02w2o1WQ My response is:

If people are dumb enough to eat meat what makes you think they are smart enough to know how to cook it?
