Some of us are big fans of street foods and can't live without them !While some of us are strongly against eating street foods.However ,everything in moderation is alright.Yet I would like to advice people to stay away from street foods due to the following reasons

The reasons

1.Pollution-We are all aware of the effects of pollution on our health.Just imagine a vendor selling food at a corner of the street and numerous cars running past them emitting smoke in large amounts.

2.You don't know the vendor-Yes you don't know the person selling the food.You don't know if he has any kind of contagious diseases.Either the vendor or the cook might have some kind of a skin disease which you fail to notice.Most of the time the vendors don't wash their hands before serving the food or packing them.You won't find them wearing gloves before touching the food.

3.They just care about the business-Yes the street food sellers wouldn't think twice before serving you a burger that was made 10 days back.And if you fall sick ..well that's none of their business.

Stay safe and try to avoid street foods.Happy bubbling !

Everything you said was true. Mishandling, poor environment and poor health conditions of the vendor could all contribute to people getting sick when they eat street food.
