Safety And Health
Hundreds of thousands of Americans alone are sickened every year by their food, and some even die. Thousands more are hurt by knives, wire brush bristles stuck to meat, burns and other hazards around the grill. Here's an overview of the hazards and how to reduce the risk. And here's a shocker: Far more people are sickened by bacteria on raw veggies and salads than by meat. Why? Cooking kills. Raw anything is vastly more risky.
