I do not worry about any of it except maybe the sushi.

Same here. I don't like sushi at all let alone the memory of how sick I got from it the first time I ate it.

lol! The sushi comment I found funny was "To minimize risk, eat sashimi (sushi made with raw fish) at restaurants where the chefs not only know how to purchase the best fish, but also know how to identify and remove parasites during preparation." I highly doubt that if I saw my sushi chef picking out parasites from my sashimi that I'd be eating there anymore.

Most sushi establishments use fish that has previously been frozen. The freezing process kills pretty much all parasites. I've had sushi twice this week - and I wouldn't mind having it again tomorrow!

I believe the parasite, if present, would be removed during the preparation stages prior do the doors opening - not during service.

I hate you had that experience. There's nothing more refreshing or satisfying than sushi. The last time I had the flu my first meal was sushi - who knew sushi was a comfort food!

If I am not mistaken (and it very possible that I am) I think that it is a law in the US that fish for sushi must be previously frozen.

i'll have to go check that out gb. i've heard of "live" sushi places here in the city. it couldn't have been frozen if it's served alive.

maybe just really uncomfortably chilly.

I-I don't kn-kn-know wh-what to say! You mean I'm going to die? I can't believe it. Oh cruel world. I eat food. So now I'm going to die.

Well! That's it then. I'm not eating any more. I'll beat this death thing. I'm going to live off of air. I'll just swallow a lot of it and burp a bunch. Just think of the benefits. There will be no need to ever have to use the bathroom again. Nothing gowing in, nothing going out. I'll lose weight, and we know that that's a healthy thing. I won't have to worry about kife skills, or cooking skills anymore. I'll be able to spend the time I used to waste on cooking for more useful activites. It's all good.

Yup, I'm going to quit eating. That's the answer. Now who's with me?

Good point BT. I have heard of those places too. Maybe there is an exemption for live fish, or maybe my disclaimer was just very well placed
