Watercress....... Safe to eat from a garden pond?
Does anyone know anything about eating watercress from a garden pond? Could it be infected with ‘liver fluke’ ? The pond that we have been eating copius amounts of watercress from is grown in a top pond with water that flows into a bottom pond of Koi carp. This water then is filtered and pumped back up to the top pond. I have been very worried about the fact that we could be infected with liver fluke and not know it. I am now paranoid about the fact that we have been eating this delicious plant all summer and today was the first time that I was alerted to the problem of ‘liver fluke’ larvae. Eeeeekk!
Help, please, if you know anything about this and could ease my mind.
P.s. Maybe this should have been on questions, I was not sure !
