Abstract:

“Exotic” food dishes reflect the diversity of human culture. From raw turtle eggs and raw snake meat in Asia, crocodile meat in Australia, and raw duck blood soup in Vietnam, examples abound of food considered exotic to those from other areas of the world. With the increase in international travel to remote areas of the world, globalization of the food supply, and changes in food habits, more people are consuming dishes once considered exotic. Many such individuals are immunosuppressed or susceptible to infection based on underlying medical conditions (e.g., HIV) or age and expose themselves to potentially risky food for the purposes of cultural exploration and adventure. Despite improvements in hygiene, water purification, and food sanitation in some locales, many parts of the world continue to be plagued by deficiencies in these areas.
