Yes I wash everything. People get food poisoning from not washing their fruits and vegetables. I am not willing to get sick from someone's neglect.

Normally I wash fruits before I eat them. We need to be careful with everything that we eat so its better to wash them. You are right since those fruits or vegetables passed through a process from harvesting to delivery and storage, along the way it could contain some bacteria that are really hazardous to our health.

I will wash off potatoes and celery. I peel the potatoes, but they still have dirt on the skin and it can get on the potato as you peel it. Sometimes I wash apples, but not always. I buy pre-washed lettuce, so I don't wash that. I don't wash carrots either because I always peel them. I don't worry too much about a little dirt or bacteria. I hardly ever get sick or get sick from food.

Yes, I always was everything before I eat them. I have even trained my children to wash everything also...they think I go overboard when I make them wash an organe before they peel it, but I pointed out to them that they peel it and eat it without washing their hands, so they could be transfering germs to the flesh part of the fruit.

I was a vegetarian when i was younger and just recently also. But i started eating meat again in August. I only eat chicken now. I think i am not really a vegetarian but i love to eat vegetables, if i don't eat veges i feel empty and still hungry even i already eat, i mean I'm not really satisfied with what i eat unless i have vegetables once in a while.

Yes, I do wash vegetables/fruits before eating them. Since now-a-days lot of pesticides are used for growing them. It is always advisable to wash them before we consume. Washing also helps in removing dust or germs on vegetables/fruits.

I do always wash fruits and vegetables really well before I eat them. These days you just never know what is on them and it's better to be safe than sorry. The Taco Bell e-coli outbreak because of green onions is a good example of why it's important to wash everything very well.

Yes I wash it several times and I feel that it is very important to wash them before cooking because all the germs gets washed away

im very much sensitive when it comes to that. I wash it many times until im satisfied that i could tell it's already clean enough to eat. They are very prone on bacterias and other bad elemants so as we all know if we dont wash what we eat it cause bad health.
