A couple has claimed they’re ‘never ill’ because they include ‘raw chicken’ in their diet.
Speaking in a TikTok video, Emma Woodward says she ‘always’ eats raw chicken despite health experts insisting it’s dangerous.
In the clip, which has been viewed 65,000 times, a chopping board of meat can be seen.
Emma’s partner, who isn’t shown on camera, then says: “Hmm… some nice raw chicken. Do you want a piece babe?”
Agreeing to try it, the TikToker eagerly chews on the food. In the background, her partner dubs it ‘healthy’. He then goes on to offer her another slice, which she again accepts.
One person commented: “You are crazy!”
Another added: “Erm okay… food poisoning.”
Following the backlash, Emma has responded by insisting she’s ‘always done it’.
She then added: “Tomorrow another day never ill.”
According to Healthline, eating raw meat can be incredibly dangerous. As well as resulting in food poisoning, the uncooked food could include common pathogens such as Salmonella and E.coli.
By properly preparing meat, the majority of harmful pathogens are destroyed.
Recently, another TikToker has faced backlash for feeding her pet pig pork sausages.
A woman known as Jodie has been told by her followers that it is ‘irresponsible’ and ‘morally wrong’ to be allowing the creature to eat its own kind.
One person wrote: “Just because ‘pigs will eat anything’ doesn’t make it moral to consciously feed a domesticated pig its own kind… What’s wrong with y’all?”
Another added: “This is not okay making your pig eat its own kind. It’s not okay don’t do that.”
However, not everyone was offended by the post, with one pointing out that pigs have been known to eat their own species.
“Pigs sometimes eat their own and other animals will do the same. Cannibalism is not rare in nature. Quit being a snowflake and get over it,” they wrote.
