According to a new study out of Penn State University, if you're eating something and a FLY lands on it, you shouldn't do what you usually do . . . brush the fly away and keep eating. You should throw the food out.
The researchers found that flies actually have the potential to carry around MUCH more dangerous bacteria than we thought, including things like salmonella and E. coli.
They even think that flies might be behind some disease outbreaks, especially flies in urban areas.
Quote, "People had some notion that there were pathogens that were carried by flies, but had no idea of the extent to which this is true . . . [you should] think twice about eating that potato salad that's been sitting out at your next picnic."
