We have concentrated on preventing food-borne illnesses to prevent birth defects this week. Learning to cook foods at home by watching TV cooking demos is a great way to improve your overall diet and health. But a study shows that TV cooking shows and celebrity chefs are letting you down by not teaching safe food preparation along with all that fancy cooking instruction. Remember to review the food safety tips at www.foodsafety.gov and use your knowledge to critique your celebrity chefs with "Prevent to Protect" in mind.
