MOSCOW, June 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s chief sanitary doctor, Gennady Onishchenko, has warned Russians not to abuse exotic foods, such as sushi and the like.
“Don’t test your stomachs,” he said on Saturday. “We are people of a traditional diet,” and uncooked foods, especially fish, may tell negatively on the health, he noted. “Eat what is inherent to your genetics.”
He confessed that himself is a lover of sliced frozen meat, a kind of shashimi traditional of Russia’s Siberian cuisine. But, in his words, such products have century-long traditions and recopies.
As for the Japanese cuisine available in Russia, such dishes are of dubious quality because they are generally cooked by locals, he noted. “Why eat these helminthosis-infected foods?” he said. In his words, there are cases when fish in such sushi is already rotten. “I have seen people eating such sushi, Hitchcock would be scared,” he added.
