Why you shouldnt worry about eating the bugs that live on your strawberries
On the popular platform, people have been posting videos of themselves soaking strawberries in salt water for 30 minutes to see whether bugs come out of them. So far, videos posted by users appear to show maggots, spiders, and other bugs crawling in and out of the berries. "If you're eating fresh produce, you're eating bugs," Greg Loeb, an entomologist and professor at Cornell University, told CNN. Eating those bugs won't make you sick." By the time you eat your strawberries, the only bugs you'll ingest are the tiny ones that you wouldn't even notice.
