Eat Well, Age Well: Fight Foodborne Illness
You have been cooking and eating food your entire life, so why start worrying about food safety now? As you age, you gain wisdom of the mind, but changes also occur in the body. With age comes a decrease in the body’s natural defenses to fight bacteria. You may be more prone to getting sick from your food. Your sense of smell and taste may also decrease, so you may not always be able to tell if foods have gone bad. Understanding how to handle your food safely will keep you healthy and independent.

IMPORTANT FACTS About the Safety of Unpasteurized (Raw) Milk
The majority of the milk and dairy products sold in the United States are pasteurized, which means they go through a heat process that kills harmful bacteria (e.g., Salmonella, E. coli, Campylobacter, etc.) that can be found in unpasteurized (raw) milk. Pasteurization not only improves the safety of the milk but also lengthens its shelf life.
