Salmonella is the most common food-borne illness in the US. More than a million people get sick from it every year and nearly 400 people die as a result. That’s because food safety regulators allow producers to sell products containing the bacteria and won’t issue a recall until after people get sick.

Never ever wash poultry...?
How to not get salmonella:
step 1: don’t buy meat
Step 2:eat fast foods
Could be in the kale or soylent. Might be in the vaccines you don't get. Could be in the fetus you just aborted.
If there was one good thing that came from salmonella, it's Sam O' Nella .

China's Belt and Road Initiative is the most ambitious infrastructure project in modern history. It spans over 60 countries and will cost over a trillion dollars. The plan is to make it easier for the world to trade with China, by funding roads, railways, pipelines, and other infrastructure projects in Asia and Africa. China is loaning trillions of dollars to any country that's willing to participate and it's been a big hit with the less democratic countries in the region. This makes the BRI a risky plan as well. But China is pushing forward because its goals are not strictly economic, they're also geopolitical.
