    So chicken juice = raw fecal soup. And when you put it that way…

    Dr. Greger: I’m a vegan but I feed my cats naturally (ie not the horrific commercial pet foods.) That means I am handling human-grade raw quail daily that I buy at Ranch 99. And I DO wash the quail or else my kitties could get blood on the floor. (It’s a job to make them eat the birds on the mats I lay down for them. They respond to real food like real animals and want to drag their prey off to a quiet corner. I wash my hands whenever I handle the raw quail and spray the sink and counter (and floor as necessary) with pure white vinegar. Is this enough? I can’t NOT handle raw meats if I am going to have kitties because the ingredients of canned commercial pet foods are toxic. Any recommendations?

    but how to remove those things from my kitchen? Is alcohol enough?

    So…I’ll be checking out in the grocery store *only* via the self-service registers from now on, where I can bring my own bags and make sure the foods don’t actually touch the register or those gross conveyor belts.

    Maybe also bring a clean plastic bag to lay on the scale when the produce is sold by weight rather than count…

    ugh.
