The Dangers of Eating Crayfish Raw

By Kathryn Parry | Food Drink | Rating:

The concept of eating raw food stuffs has been common in our society more or less everywhere these days. Over the past few years when the nutritionists introduced diet plans, consumption of eating raw food got significantly popular within a short amount of time. People thought eating raw food products is healthy and nutritious and that it would also provide their metabolism and immunity a boost as well. The practice of eating raw and organic materials is still in vogue but it is also a true fact that there are some cons of eating raw stuff as well.

There are some foods that you can eat in the raw form but the nutritionists have accommodated those groups to only a few of the categories; fruits, vegetables and some other highlighted types of foods are included in these groups. Other foods that you cannot consume in a raw form are fishes, poultry meat and most obviously eggs and red meat.

However, in this article I am going to shed some light upon the dangers of eating crayfish raw only. No matter how healthy you are and how effectively your body responds to changes, you have to consider the consequences of eating crayfish raw at all costs.

Hygiene Concerns

The dangers of eating crayfish raw basically include hygiene concerns at the top. If you are eating this form of fish without having it cooked or processed, then you would also be consuming bacteria and germs with the crayfish as well. Eating crayfish raw can easily cause several different bacterial disorders within your body. It could lower down your immunity and neurological balances. Crayfish raw that is not cooked would be dangerous because according to nutritionists, any kind of food must pass 118 degrees of heat before it can be consumed and can also be considered healthy as well.

Exposes Your Body to Salmonella

Eating crayfish raw would make you more prone to the salmonella which is a dangerous form of bacteria. Most of the people that have already gone through this experience suffer through salmonella poisoning which is a form of dehydration and diarrhea. If you had already experienced such kind of illness in your life then I am sure that you won’t be willing to go through the whole experience once again.

Can Induce Non-Pulmonary Tuberculosis

The dangers of eating crayfish raw just don’t stop here. Crayfish meat in raw form contains mycobacterium bovis that could induce the non-pulmonary form of tuberculosis in your body. Mostly, the nutrients and quality content that is available in the food doesn’t unlock before it is actually cooked and prepared which is why you need to avoid eating crayfish in its raw form.

Causes Gastrointestinal Issues

Eating crayfish raw can also cause gastrointestinal issues as well. The food wouldn’t be digested in the correct manner because enzymes would be taking a long amount of time to simplify the food products.

So, above mentioned were some highlighted dangers of eating crayfish raw. I am sure that by now you must have realized that by no means it is wise to eat crayfish in raw form.
