Sushi is a beautiful looking dish and rather tasty too, but each bite of sushi can potentially affect your body. There is a high risk of getting very sick from eating sushi due to all the parasites and toxins that come with raw fish. There isn’t enough data available to break down infections by food type, but annually one in six Americans gets food poisoning.
Sushi can potentially harm children, pregnant women and people with weak immune systems. It is better they avoid sushi. For the rest of them, the illnesses might just be an unpleasant episode, but for those groups, the side effects can be fatal or cause long term harm.
