#FoodSafety 🦃🥘🍽️

The @CDCgov estimates 48 million people get sick from food borne diseases every year in US, many outbreaks occur around #Thanksgiving. Here are a few cooking practices to keep your family safe and healthy this holiday season ⬇️…
👉🏻 Always wash your food, hands, counters, and cooking tools.

👉🏻 Keep raw foods to themselves. Germs can spread from one food to another.

👉🏻 Foods need to get hot and stay hot. Heat kills germs.

👉🏻 Put perishable food in the fridge right away.…
Make sure a turkey reaches internal temp of 165°F to kill germs. Check with a food thermometer; always avoiding bone. Check at:

👉🏻 thickest part of breast

👉🏻 where body and thigh join, aiming toward thigh

👉🏻 where body and wing join, aiming toward wing

Today is #WorldFoodSafetyDay
We all want our food to be safe. And we all want to be healthy
However, globally, 1 in 10 people per year succumb to foodborne diseases.
Foodborne diseases can be mild to very serious, even leading to death

Safe food meets our nutritional needs.
It helps adults to live an active and healthy life.
And it aids growth in children

The ICSP voted to include the rank "phylum" into the code of bacterial nomenclature, and NCBI taxonomy followed.

Many people voiced anger for this #taxonomygate bc... twitter. Here some thoughts on the matter... (1/n)
There were many complains about nomenclature being worthless or irrelevant. As a microbial ecologist, I understand where this comes from, particularly with bioinformatic tools that require only spaceholders as identifiers. As a microbiologist, I think this is short-sighted. (2)
But #microbialtaxonomy is important for other people too. For example, it is central for diagnostics in #healthcare and #foodsafety and #biotechnology. Many who don't care about ecology or evolution need this.
It might not matter to you, but it matters to others. (3)

Why is food safety IMPORTANT?

Whoever consumes the food is protected from the risk of food borne illnesses.

The food we consume play a SIGNIFICANT role in our basic functionalities and hence the need to EAT HEALTHY and SAFE FOOD.
Startling Food Safety tips you may wish you'd have known long before now:
1. It takes four hours for bacteria to start multiplying.

2. Freezing only stops the growth of bacteria, but doesn't kill it; Cooking does.
3. It's harmful for a raw turkey to be kept non-refrigerated for more than 45 mins.

4. Fruits and Vegetables in the bag is a WRONG. It could lead to contamination.

5. RE-COOK leftovers left on the fridge after 36 hours.

@CDCEnvironment @PEHSUnational Imagine a life without #pesticides!

Are you claiming it is better for kids to be exposed to lice, fleas, ticks & the diseases they transmit from rats to children?

Typhus is a vector-borne disease of the Middle Ages and is showing up in California!…
@CDCEnvironment @PEHSUnational Or how about toxic weeds like Datura contaminating your green beans?

Datura residues can make kids hallucinate & have a heat stroke-like syndrome!

#herbicides control toxic weeds so you don’t have to worry about them in your veggies!…
@CDCEnvironment @PEHSUnational Or how about ergotism from fungal infections in crops?

Did you know that ergot is where LSD comes from?

Would you want your kids to be exposed to LSD residues in cereal?

This week, the @FAOWHOCodex Alimentarius Commission is setting #SafeFood standards


#CodexCAC43 #FoodSafety
The @FAOWHOCodex Commission agreed to a standard for fermented cooked cassava-based products. This will contribute to the regularization of the sector by making it possible to define the identity & quality characteristics of fermented cassava products.

With the adoption by the @FAOWHOCodex Commission, of a standard for fresh leaves of Gnetum spp, a wild evergreen climber 🌿 found in rain forests, countries will be able to regulate the sale & export of these products.

Overuse & misuse of antimicrobials in agriculture & animal husbandry is one of the factors leading to the emergence & spread of #antimicrobialresistance. Antimicrobial-resistant bacteria in animals may be transmitted to humans via food.


#FoodSafety Image
Achieving #FoodSafety requires expertise from various disciplines: toxicology, microbiology, parasitology, nutrition, health economics, human & veterinary medicine. Local communities, women’s groups & school education also play an important role.

#FoodSafety Image
People should make informed and wise food choices and adopt adequate behaviors. They should know common food hazards and how to handle #FoodSafety.

#FoodSafety 1 in 10 people fall ill every year from eating contaminated food and 420,000 die each year as a result.<br />
Children under-5 are at particularly high risk. 125,000 young children die from foodborne diseases every year.
The most common symptoms of foodborne disease are stomach pains, vomiting & diarrhoea. Food contaminated with heavy metals or with naturally occurring toxins can also cause long-term health problems including cancer & neurological disorders.

The consequences of foodborne disease are usually more severe and may be fatal for infants, pregnant women, the sick and the elderly.

Crops For Profitable Farming


Thinking of farming but don't know which crop to focus on?

Many farmers get tied to nonprofitable crops with little to write home about.
Others end up doing crops that require volume to make reasonable margins.

Try the following crops👇
Bambara Nuts (Bande, or tsibande or Njugu Mawe)
These nuts are highly nutritious and they cost a hand in the market.
Currently one tin of 2kgs is costing ksh. 1000 in most parts. 1kg at 450 to 500.
They require good farm management, weeding n covering them with soil. Yields high.
These nuts do well in most altitudes but low and medium altitudes are the best.
Read soil is the perfect for them. Plant one per hole at 10cm from hole to hole and 1F row to row. Best time is in September during short rains. Be keen with rodents. Top dress with NPK 17:17:17

1/This news of (a)food supply chain disruptions & (b)worker infections at meat processing plants have prompted people to ask if the food supply chain is (a)secure and (b)safe. Two very important topics we’ll tackle separately in the thread below. We’ll begin with the Supply Chain
2/ There are currently several challenges to the supply chain as the linked article points out:
1. Virus outbreaks at food plants are triggering plant closures
2. Agricultural need of guest workers while undergoing a potential wage cut & visa issues
3/ Supply chain mismatches: food sold in bulk to schools/restaurants have no distribution pipeline to supermarkets
4. Increased food insecurity due to job loss of
5. Delivery capacity: lack of truck drivers/distribution to point of point. #COVID19
