READER'S COMMENT:
"Bunch of bollocks. Above comments already have said what I wanted to say. Well, our grand grand parents didn't even have fridges and lived, right? Don't eat runny eggs? Well, as a kid I used to eat raw yolks with salt and it was yummy....

7. Always wash your hands in warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds before handling food and after touching raw meat, poultry or eggs.

You can pick up a lot of bacteria out in the world, so it’s important to always wash your hands before you eat or prepare food. You should also wash your hands after touching any uncooked meat, poultry and fish or eggs, as bacteria from these foods can contaminate cooked foods and fresh produce. Use soap and warm water and wash thoroughly—for at least 20 seconds.
