The talk is all good when it comes to sushi, but many won't tell you of the chance of getting a parasite from it! Anything uncooked has the potential of having parasites in or on it. But the chances are greatly raised in raw meats and poultry. Raw fish can easily contain water parasites. If you're going to eat sushi, choose your location wisely. Avoid packaged, fast food sushi in a refrigerator. And always avoid eating sushi sitting on a buffet or at a restaurant that does not maintain the high values in cleanliness. If possible, go for sun baked sushi or vegetarian sushi.
