    Yummy! Howdy folks, this is my first time posting and it won`t be my last!:-) I`ve been lurking around this site for quite some time but just recently signed up. I`ve submitted a few links but none of them have shown up, but from what I`ve read that`s not uncommon. Oh well...

    people worry too much about germs. humans have been dealing with germs like these for thousands of years. if we`d stop being pussies we might build up some immune system strength!

    Why doesn`t she test the lemons at whatever supply houses provides them for these restaurants? Perhaps the problem is at its source... or, fruit may just have bacteria in it. Not defending the restaurants, but it would be good to check all the sources.

    But WHY fecal matter? Because of the waiter didn`t bother washing his hands after he used the restroom? Later he touched your lemon, and the bacteria from his ass-candy is now in your drink. Blak.

    I mean, I`m not surprised... that`s the sad part.

    WAY bad math... They said 77% of the lemons were nasty, then the moron announcer says that`s "two out of every three lemons". Jesus Tap-Dancing Christ.

    This is stupid... My mother and my grandmother, for example, HATE to go out to eat or something, because they think that the food that others prepare is like a germ-infected poison... You can´t live if you constantly worry about banalities like this.

    77% have disease causing bacteria?
    so why isnt 77% of america in a state of perpetual illness?
    oh, right. because most of america has developed immunities to it.

    it might cause a 3 year old to get sick, but an average adult, who is exposed to (and builds immunities against) all kinds of bacteria for 20+ years..? i, for one, will still have a slice of lemon with my tea, thankyouverymuch.

    Here`s a little fact: 40% of all fecal matter released is composed of the "life-necessary" bacteria currently thriving in your intestines. In truth, 23 of the 25 species they found on the lemons are LIKELY (not saying I know for sure) to be found on any common surface. I did a project similar to this, but on the menus. Unlike the lemons, menus rarely get wiped down or washed before use. I found a responsible for BONE CANCER at a prominent chain restaurant! Thats scary, not a little poo on your lemon.

    Why are they singling out lemons? I mean, if the bacteria is on the employee`s hands, bacteria is going to be on everything he touches, not just the lemons. If the bacteria is coming from the knife, or the prep surface, all the other food would be affected also. Basically, bacteria is everywhere, and thinking you are avoiding it by choosing not to have a lemon wedge is foolish. There is probably even more bacteria on the ice. We eat crap everyday. No news here, people. Move along.

    I might be being retarded here, or it could be an American thing, but isn`t it `faecal` matter (feesel) rather than `fecal` (feekal)...that annoyed me the whole way through! Either way, I`m not that fussed, I`ll still have lemon.

    According to webster`s, Faecal is an adjective while fecal is a noun. For example: "There`s corn in my fecal matter!" as opposed to "That corn is faecal!"

    Short answer, bacterial R.N.A integrates with cellular R.N.A, causing the production of more bacteria, in most cases. This bacteria causes a mutation of the host`s R.N.A or D.N.A, which in turn causes the "programed cell death" response of the cell to deactivate. The D.N.A continues to mutate and reproduce until a tumor is formed. This is how most cancer is caused, external (or internal) factors causing a mutation in the D.N.A of a cell and the over reproduction of said cell. I don`t remember the name of the particular bacteria, just what the lab tech. that helped me said, sorry.
