"I'm strong to the finish 'cause I eats me spinach...."
O.k., how many others heard about the E. coli outbreak just after eating raw spinach? In fact Miss Mumpy had just served up dinner on a bed of baby spinach to guests the night before. While wondering if that stomach grumble was a precursor to signs of poisoning I waited for my phone to ring with angry friends wondering why I oh why did I feel the need to make them ill. Fortunately no one became ill but it got me wondering; how do we know we are ill if we are always sick? I mean the side effects from my meds alone cause half the symptoms to look for in E. coli poisoning!
