Pathogens, such as salmonella and E. Coli, can be found on many raw fruits and vegetables. American scientists have established that even washing them several times will not be enough to get rid of the bacteria.

Amanda Deering, one of the authors of the research, told that the researchers had found pathogens of the E. coli strain in bean sprouts and those of Salmonella in peanuts.

Dangerous bacteria can be found in all major tissues of the plants, including the one that is responsible for transporting nutrients. Thus, pathogens are found not only on the surface of fruits and vegetables, but also inside. As the professionals have established, the preparation of plant foods at high temperatures will destroy bacteria that are hidden deep in the vegetable.
