Something I had never considered before was the practice that some grocery stores use of those automatic water sprayers on fresh vegetables in the bins. Evidently, in addition to the germs and pesticides that may be on fresh fruits and vegetables, there is the potential for this sprayed water to contain the germ that causes Legionnaire's disease.

So even eating those veggies that are so good for us can be dangerous if we don't process them correctly before eating. Bummer.

I cringe when i see people eat fruits and veggies without washing them. Someone told me they are already washed before they get to the store. Yeah and they are sitting out in the open most of the time for people to touch and sneeze on. And even bagged, they could be harboring contaminants. It's so easy just to wash the stiff to be a bit safer.
