Friday Question of the Day – Do you Heed Food Warnings?

I used to love eating oysters. That is until I learned last month that they, “appear to be an important link in the transmission of norovirus among humans”. I haven’t eaten one since. Three days ago I learned that one of my favorite foods, the humble hot dog, increases one’s risk for cancer. Even a healthy snack like seaweed of all things may cause cancer, as I posted about yesterday.

Do I just throw caution to the wind and ignore these warnings or make a conscientious effort to avoid certain foods? I think I should quit oysters for good, cut down on hot dogs and red meat slightly and ignore the warnings for seaweed. Do all these food warnings concern you? Does it affect what you eat?
