The main breeding ground of harmful micro-organisms in the apartment — the kitchen sink, said the Professor of public health, environmental Sciences and immunology at the University of Arizona Charles coat of Arms. It is reported by CNN.
Arms noted that many people defrost raw meat in the sinks or wash the bird before cooking. By dangerous microorganisms are spread throughout the basin and further to the kitchen. In addition, the expert said, some products can spread Salmonella and E. coli.
The coat of Arms called the dirtiest items in the kitchen countertop, sponges for washing dishes, cloths and towels. “A recent study found that cutting Board more germs than a toilet seat”, — said the scientist.
In September experts of Roskoshestvo said that in 25 percent of cases in people who wash the bird before cooking, was diagnosed with acute intestinal infection caused by Salmonella. They explain that in the course of washing the meat, pathogenic bacteria are not killed, but only spread through the kitchen with water drops. They get to clean dishes or other food and threaten the health. Experts argue that pathogenic bacteria can only be killed by prolonged heat treatment — the internal product temperature should not be below 74 degrees.
