「關於蒼蠅,你不可不知的噁心真相」- The Gross Truth about Flies in Your Food


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

Picture this: You're having a delightful brunch with your bestie when a fly lands on your waffles; its feet are stuck in the syrup. What do you do? Should you continue to eat without a care?
想像一下這:你正和好友享用美好的早午餐,此時一隻蒼蠅停在你的鬆餅上;牠的腳卡在糖漿裡。你怎麼做?你應該不在意地繼續吃嗎?

What Happens When a Fly Lands in Your Food?
蒼蠅停在你的食物上時怎麼了?

You may not know this, but house flies are unable to chew solid food because they're physically incapable of biting down. Their mouths are specifically built to suck up food, like little straws. So, when they want to eat solid food, they regurgitate saliva onto the food, making it soft enough to suck up with their weird little hose mouths. What makes this extra gross is the saliva could contain remnants from their previous meals, so your meal might be getting covered in bacteria and pathogens picked up from feces, raw meat, and garbage. Flies land in some gross foods, my friends.
你可能不知道這,不過家蠅無法咀嚼固體食物,因為牠們身體構造上就無法咬。牠們的嘴是特別建來吸取食物的,就像小吸管。因此,當蒼蠅想吃固體食物時,牠們會吐口水到食物上,讓食物變軟到能用牠們怪異的小管嘴吸起。讓這格外噁心的事情是,那口水可能含有蒼蠅前幾餐的殘留物,所以你的食物或許會覆滿從排泄物、生肉還有垃圾獲得的細菌和病原體。我的朋友,蒼蠅可是會停在一些噁心的食物上。

Can't get worse, right? Wrong! They can actually contaminate your meal even before they puke on it. The hairs on a fly's body can transfer bacteria from wherever they were before—maybe that was a beautiful flower, or maybe it was a big steaming pile of dog doo. That brings us to the question: Should you toss your meal if a fly lands in it? Well, a healthy immune system can usually take care of the small amount of bacteria that flies carry, but it's your call—if you're cool with fly puke.
不會再更糟了,對吧?錯!蒼蠅甚至在吐到你的餐點上之前就能真正汙染你的食物。蒼蠅身上的毛可以從先前所處的任何地方搬移細菌--那可能是朵美麗的花,或者那可能是一大坨熱騰騰的狗便便。那使我們思考這問題:如果有隻蒼蠅停在你的食物上,你應該把食物丟掉嗎?嗯,健康的免疫系統通常可以處理蒼蠅攜帶的少量細菌,不過決定權在你--如果你覺得蒼蠅的嘔吐物沒差的話。
