Here is a link of the american cancer society regarding this precautions to take if your immune system is weak :
The precautions are at the second part of the page.
They say for instance that we must WASH AND COOK THE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES (what I forgot to say in the last version of my message)
I wrote in one of my former post about steaming (which preserves the properties of the food).
I don't know how long we have to steam the food to kill the bacterias. (the time of cooking can also be different according to the foods).Your medical team will also informe you regarding this way of cooking.
But DON'T USE PLASTIC FOOD STEAMERS because the impregnate your food with dangerous chemicals.
So use other materials . Ask your medical team about the safest ones. You can tell your friends and people you know about this information
Fruits and vegetables are very healthy and it's goot to eat them (but ask your medical tea which ones are the most adapted in your situation because every situation is different) but I read we just have to whash and cook them if our immune system is weak.
But even if your immune system is not weak, I read you must wash very well (and maybe cook some of them i don't know) all fruits and vegetable (and of course many other foodstufs), from any origin. We also must whash our hands and kitchen ustensils. Also in this situation (when the immune system is not weak) your medical team will informe you about the best way to get ride of the bacterias and other stuffs we don't want to ingest. (its different from a foodstuff to another).
As I am not a doctor the content of this message is not a medical advise, just an information I read. And we read many things in Internet ;-) That's why I write (so many times) we must ask our medical team about the precautions to take. (for food and other subjects). Usually if your immune system is weak they informe you spontaneously but if they didn't tell you ask them.
Have a nice day and sorry for my english which is not my usual language ;-)

Hi Alain, thanks !
I've also read that steaming is highly recommended both for killing bacteria and to preserve nutrients and that raw food is hard on the spleen. Actually, very lightly cooking food releases loads of vits and minerals which otherwise remain locked and not absorbed
