A jerk in the hand is worth two in the bush

So I'm reading Fast Food Nation and I just learned something I'd share with everyone. Apparently E. coli bacteria is present in abundance in the human stomach. It's a bacteria that helps digest food, synthesize vitamins, and guard against dangerous organisms. The E. coli that's deadly is E. coli0157:H7 and much less common. Who knew!

I'll leave you with the following quote:

The medical literature on the causes of food poisoning is full of euphemisms and dry scientific terms : coliform levels, aerobic plate counts, sorbitol, MacConkey agar, and so on. Behind them lies a simple explanation for why eating a hamburger can now make you seriously ill: there is shit in the meat." - Fast Food Nation page 197
