comment Is it safe to eat raw eggs?
There are different figures available but to quote one example: "Salmonella contamination in eggs doesn't happen much - one or two eggs out of every 40,000, according to the CDC and FDA. On average, that means one egg every day for 100 years before you got sick."

comment Is it safe to eat raw fish?
As a general rule, freshwater fish species are not safe to eat raw, because they often contain parasites which can only be eliminated by cooking.
