There are many ways to make an intelligent man keep away from sprouts , say it is contaminated with E coli.
The same media, allows meat that is stored for months,and filthy livestock in damp places, they do not harbor E coli?
It is so easy to contaminate, and blame a source of natural food.
A real pity this time the German, Spanish farms have been pointed as carriers of E coli.
The contaminators will never be caught, and even if they are found ,they will go Scot free, for their connections.
There is no limit to cause fear, how ever wise u are and courageous.
May be u too will avoid the sprouts, and listen to the media.
Keep away from the enzymatic rich, healthy, nutritious and easy to digest sprouts.
