Author: Darrell Miller Subject: Listeria and its prevention
Listeria is a kind of bacteria that causes 'Listeriosis'. This pathogen is present in the soil, water and sometimes even in animals used for meat and cattle. It can enter the body by the consumption of poultry food, milk and its products, raw vegetables and sometimes even through the meat of herbivores. While many pathogens die when refrigerated, Listeria continues to thrive in cold temperature.
The only way to get rid of Listeria is by cooking and pasteurisation. To avoid coming in contact with Listeria, you need to wash the fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating them. For the vegetables which grow under the soil, like beetroot and potato, it is advisable to cook them at a high temperature or boil them before consuming.
It is also critical to keep everything used in the process of preparing food spotless and disinfected. Washing hands before eating and cooking is necessary too.
These precautions can help you avoid listeria from entering your body.
