Hello, my husband received his new lung exactly 3 months ago at the Mayo Clinic. We may be going home tomorrow. Yeah! We had our last appointmenti with the infectious disease doctor yesterday and were told the vinegar method was not necessary at all. Who recommended you this method? Or where did you read about it? We are trying to follow evidence- evidence-based best practices; otherwise it can get overwhelming. Thanks

@genocurt I actually read it in regard to making the berries last longer since the spores get killed by the vinegar. The really do last longer when I do that too.
I just figured if that killed off the spores it probably also gets rid of other things lurking on the berries. Maybe it’s not necessary, but it can’t hurt and if it keeps the berries fresh for longer it’s a win-win.

@genocurt Congrats on the successful transplant. Great news!
Can you clarify the statement by the infectious disease doc please… can we eat berries because I thought they were off limits like @rosemarya suggested. Or are you saying they are not safe even if washed in vinegar?
