In the last few years, more people have been killed by contaminated salads and other vegetables than have been made sick by any meat product. E coli in salad greens, listeria, and other stuff. The summer of '11 outbreak made almost 4000 sick and killed over 50. Last summer's problem at Chipotle's first came from salmonella linked to Florida tomatoes, then an E. coli outbreak. It's my running joke that when my wife would make me a salad for lunch, I'd ask if she was trying to kill me.
Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
