About Getting Rid Of Germs In Raw Vegetables


Do raw vegetables contain amoeba and other harmful micro-organisms? If they do, how long should they be steamed in order to be rid of these germs? I believe steaming would be safer than boiling as steam does not destroy nutrients.

    Thanks for the tip on how to remove chemicals from veggies with lemon and vinegar. Did you mean steaming for five minutes under pressure? We steam the veggies for fifteen minutes, but not in a pressure cooker.

    I agree. Germs are killed off by the immune system and get expelled from the body. Herbicides and pesticides are toxins that lodge in the body and stay there and cause disease. The only way to get them out is through special cleanses.

    Hi Parkavithai, thanks for your response. I hope turmeric destroys amoeba as well!
