Isn't raw fish full of tape worms eggs that hatch inside your belly messing you up permanently?

It's a risk, for certain. Sushi grade fish is very fresh and then brought down to a temperature just above freezing to kill any critters like your friend here. Sushi restaurants don't want to be known for giving their patrons tapeworms, so I'm sure food safety is their absolute top priority. And, reading reviews helps in finding the best sushi places around where you live.
The water is very warm where I live (Tampa, Florida) so all of our fish must be fully cooked to avoid getting sick.  It used to be easy to get raw oysters on the half shell around here until some people got very sick and some died.  Now, most places don't have it and those that do have a plethora of warnings not to do it.  This makes me more cautious than most I guess.
Same thing happened in Jacksonville I think some time in the 80s...not death, but sickness and a lot of closings.

As far as tapeworms messing you up permanently, Okinawa has the highest life expectancy on the planet. Additionally, Japan has the largest number of centenarians on the planet. Are they living with tapeworms for decades? Maybe, but I doubt it.

Having said all that, I DO see a lot of medicine ads for stomach pain/ache.

BUT infinitely worse than sushi or sashimi is raw chicken. That shit is absolutely gross and the number of people getting sick from it is ridiculously high compared to sushi/sashimi/raw oyster eaters. I tried raw chicken once. I didn't get sick but the taste was exactly as you'd expect. It's surprising the number of raw chicken restaurants out here that flourish.

RAW chicken? That is truly disgusting. I can't believe there is such a thing as a raw chicken restaurant. I mean, WHY? :eh:
Yes, raw. "Why?" It's Japan. I joke. But I'm serious with that answer too. :blaze:  ;)

Remember, potentially deadly fugu (blowfish) is an expensive delicacy out here too. I've had that a few times (luckily never paid for it) and I haven't died yet. Really though, it's not so special a taste. Even if it weren't lethal or expensive, I'd still rather have salmon, crab, tuna, shrimp, etc. before fugu/blowfish.

And I haven't even mentioned the $800 cantaloupes for sale in department stores. No joke. But that's another story.

((Edited for word selection))
You people are just puny humans, while I am a duck! :aliensmiley:

I totally agree on the raw chicken!  A friend in college was an agriculture/chicken something something major that had to do with chicken processing and her stories put me off chicken for years.   You could never talk me into raw.  (Where's that vomit emoji when you need it, ha ha)
Well raw chicken you see is full of dangerous bacteria such as Campylobacter jejuni, Clostridium perfringens, Staphylococcus aureus and the much more well known (and easy to type) salmonella. These things can fuckk you up big time. I wash my hands right after any time I handle raw chicken, never mind eat it.

Aside from the obvious danger potential, it's just nasty texturally and taste-wise. I felt like I were a flea-beaten werewolf when I tried it. Just told my pals while we were at that restaurant, "Well boys, I think we're going to need another restaurant when we finish up here." We basically shared just a few small plates of the gross bits and drowned it all out with tons of beer so that the visit wasn't a total bust. Only ONE out of six of us expats thought it was even passable ((one of your countrymen duck!)). I think it's important to note that all of us like sushi/sashimi so the rawness itself ((minus the illness angle)) wasn't the problem.

Easily my favorite is sabasushi, mackerel that's cured because apparently it spoils quickly. I don't think I've eaten mackerel in its raw state. Try it if you haven't.

Mackarel is possibly my favorite fish.  But I eat it smoked at Ted peters smoked fish in Pasadena, fl.  Raw?  Never.

The best non-fish sushi for me is probably shrimp. Raw shrimp isn't that tasty to me so I prefer the cooked ones.

Other non-fish sushi...

Octopus -- ok but I can skip it.

Squid -- Cooked squid (especially deep fried) is fine but raw ---> there's a 32.4391379% chance of me choking on that. That shit doesn't go down very easily!

Sea urchin -- pretty gross

Salmon roe -- might as well just squirt any random juice down my throat and except the consequences of that
My kids love Sushi.  My son is a very adventurous eater.  He LOVES octopus.  He tried salmon roe recently.  He didn't care for that.

And cooked shrimp is awesome!  It's one of my favorites.

I don't eat it raw either. Unless you're talking about the cured version

Sea urchin -- pretty gross


This! :goodone:

It's visually unappealing, and the texture is even worse. Maybe the most disgusting thing I've ever eaten.
Ever eat jellyfish?  That was pretty gross.

This is a ridiculous thing to complain about, but I'm gonna anyway.

I dropped ONE chopstick on the floor here at work right after opening them. This floor is beyond disgusting, never gets vacuumed. So, the five second rule doesn't apply. I let out a very audible, NOOOOOO!!!! :rage: Eating sushi with a fork was weird, like on another plane of consciousness weird. And, it was one of those super flimsy, sub-plastic, mega cheap things from our break room, which made it worse somehow. I'll always grab a back up pair of chopsticks from now on.

I've had to eat sushi with a fork a couple of times out of necessity, like you had to do today. You might as well be eating a waffle. It just isn't sushi without chopsticks.
Incorrect!!! ;)
Really though, just use your hands. Many say that the "proper" way IS to use your hands. Chopsticks are for something else:

Yep.  I've always been told that it's completely acceptable to eat sushi with your hands.
