Also, one is just as likely to get sick eating in "nice" restaurants, as I did twice in Mexico and once in Thailand. Eating the street food has never made me sick, because I can watch the chef prepare the meal right in front of me. Fruits and vegetables never caused problems either. Considering how most developed nations source their produce, e.g. from developing nations, I figured, what difference does it make?
