In order to maintain cleanliness, many people decide to wash the egg before put it into the refrigerator. If you're one of them, then it's good to stop doing that from now on.

Reporting from KlikDokter, dr. Dyan Mega Inderawati wrote, the habit of washing eggs before save it could increase the risk of entry of Salmonella, a bacterium that causes typhoid in humans, into the body.

Salmonella bacteria  is known to be in the chicken ovaries. When open the egg, the bacteria can be carried away and attached to the egg. The Centers for Disease Control of the United States estimates, about 1 in 20,000 eggs have been contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.

When washing the eggs, the protective membrane may be damaged. As a result, Samonella who is in the skin outside the eggs can enter from the pores of eggs that have been opened after washing.

The risk is when you cook eggs imperfectly, these bacteria can be ingested and cause various complaints/disease such as fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
