I read this from a Facebook friend. I have been thinking for some days now if I will share it here in my blog or will just ignore it. Finally tonight, I decided to post it here for everyone to be aware of what you are eating especially when you are buying from street vendors. This is especially true if you travel in third world countries. You can see a lot of vendors on the street markets selling all kinds of foods, fruits and vegetables. Sometimes we just buy foods we see on the road and forget to wash it before we eat it. Lesson number one: Always wash fresh fruits and vegetables before we put it in our mouth.
I am not sure if this is true or not. This post just serve as a warning. Besides, we must always be careful of what we eat especially if we buy it on the street. I was informed before by a doctor that we might get some sickness or virus like Hepatitis, if for example we use the eating utensils like fork or spoon of a person who has a hepatitis virus. Consult medical experts if you want more reliable information.
Mallya Hospital is located in Bengaluru, India.
Below is the story for you to read. Be careful everyone!
“A 10 year old boy had eaten pineapple about 15 days back, and fell sick from the day he had eaten. Later, when he had his Health check done… doctors diagnosed that he had AIDS. His parents couldn’t believe it…
Then the entire family underwent a Checkup… none of them suffered from Aids. So the doctors checked again with the boy if he had eaten out…The boy said “yes”. He had pineapple that evening. Immediately, a group from Mallya hospital went to the pineapple vendor to check.
They found the pineapple seller had a cut on his finger while cutting the pineapple, his blood had spread into the fruit.
When they had his blood checked… the guy was suffering from AIDS… but he himself was NOT aware.
Unfortunately, the boy is suffering from it now.
Please take care while u eat on the road side. And please SHARE this to your family and friends. —”
