The Dangers of Eating Uncooked Meat
Man Vs Wild can be a very entertaining show; in fact, I usually watch it when it’s on. The main problem with the show is that people need to realize that the survival techniques shown on the series can be very dangerous in real world survival situations.
Our focus this week is on the dangers of eating food in the wild that has not been properly prepared.
Eating uncooked meat leaves you vulnerable to a huge number of bacteria and parasites including, Bacterial Gastroenteritis (food poisoning), Camphylobacter, E-coli, Listeriosis, Salmonella, Trichinosis and a host of other nasty things that can severely impact your health and chances for survival.
Dangerous Survival Practices on Man Vs Wild
Doing what is shown in this video is not only stupid; it’s extremely dangerous. Eating uncooked meat, especially when it’s found dead like in the video, can cause serious illness and possibly death. No matter what Bear Grylls does on his so-called survival show, you need to cook any meat that you find in the wild.
