You shouldn’t wash chicken before cooking

Washing chicken puts you at a higher risk of getting food poisoning, spreads bacteria around the kitchen, a study has revealed. 

"Home cooks are probably following what their parents or grandparents did in the past by washing poultry, not to mention probably patting it dry with a tea towel," Food Safety Information Council Chairman, Dr Michael Eyles, said. 

"But washing poultry splashes these bacteria around the kitchen cross contaminating sinks, taps, your hands, utensils, chopping boards and foods that aren't going to be cooked like salads or desserts," he said. 

The Newspoll survey also found that the washing phenomenon isn't just restricted to chicken. 68 percent of respondents wash turkey and 74 percent wash duck before cooking, reported. 

Doctors believe this could be one of the reasons why notified cases of illness from Campylobacter and Salmonella - bacterias associated with food poisoning - have almost doubled over the last 20 years in Australia. 

But the zealousness of trying to rid chicken of bacteria isn't entirely unfounded. 

According to the survey, 84 per cent of raw chicken carcasses tested positive to Campylobacter, and 22 per cent to Salmonella. This is similar to the findings of other surveys overseas. 

However, all you really need to do to make sure you don't get sick from your chicken is cook it: "Cooking poultry right through kills these bacteria, making it safe," Dr Eyles insists. 

To reduce the risk of getting sick from poultry, one is advised to not wash raw poultry before cooking as this will spread any bacteria throughout your kitchen. Instead, mop up any excess moisture with a paper towel. 

Always wash and dry hands and clean surfaces after contact with raw poultry. 

Be careful not to let raw poultry juices contaminate other foods, especially things like desserts or salads, which won't be cooked again. 

You are also advised to use clean plates and utensils, and wash and dry thoroughly between using for raw and cooked poultry. 

Never place cooked food back on the same plate or cutting board that previously held raw poultry. 

Cook any poultry meat to 75°C and use a meat thermometer to check if juices run clear and are no longer pink rather than popping a piece in your mouth. 

Make sure frozen poultry is defrosted right through to the centre in the fridge or microwave in a sealed container before cooking.

Shark Population Declining Due To Bad Media Coverage

Source-ANI: The media has been particularly harsh towards sharks and this is affecting their survival, a new study has revealed.

The results of a Michigan State University study reviewed worldwide media coverage of sharks – and the majority isn’t good.

Australian and US news articles were more likely to focus on negative reports featuring sharks and shark attacks rather than conservation efforts.

Allowing such articles to dominate the overall news coverage diverts attention from key issues, such as shark populations are declining worldwide and many species are facing extinction, Meredith Gore, MSU assistant professor of fisheries and wildlife and the School of Criminal Justice said.

“The most important aspect of this research is that risks from *– rather than to – sharks continue to dominate news coverage in large international media markets,” Gore, who is part of the research team led by Bret Muter, formerly at MSU and now with the Udall Foundation, said.

“To the extent that media reflect social opinion, this is problematic for shark conservation,” she added.

Trends that topped the world in 2012

According to research by social analysts McCrindle these were the top 12 trends of 2012. Find the list unremarkable? Blame yourself, says Mark McCrindle.
Pop-culture fads that once lasted years are now coming in and out of fashion in a matter of months, and sometimes weeks.

It's little surprise that the trending pop group of 2012 was not Spice Girls, but One Direction. And Book of the Year wasn't Scandalands, it was 50 Shade of Bored Mothers.

Social analyst Mark McCrindle said that if the list is unremarkable, it just means people can relate well to pop culture.

"It sort of validates what people know. People probably wouldn't have identified Korea as driving pop culture, or that it would be so influential," he told

"Korea now seems to be setting the agenda, from Psy and pop music to frozen yoghurt and Samsung," he said.

The list of trends that topped in 2012 are:
Pop group of the year: One Direction
Book of the year: 50 Shades of Grey
TV show of the year: The Voice
Subculture of the year: K-Pop
Technology trend of the year: From digital to real world
