Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

If you knew sushi: Is sushi/sashimi safe to eat?

Two recent Japanese studies say that eating sashimi (sliced raw fish) and sushi (raw fish wrapped with seaweed and rice) may cause severe intestinal problems that range from uncomfortable to serious intestinal blockages.

Complications were from a round worm caused by eating raw or undercooked seafood that contained a certain kind of larvae.

Sushi or sashimi should not be eaten by pregnant women, people with weakened immune systems, or the elderly.
