      Hi maz! At first I wondered what you were talking about, so I went and watched the video. And now I understand!

      Dr. Axe, you didn’t wash your hands after handling the raw chicken! You went directly to handling every single container of all the ingredients you added! Yikes!! I’m sure that maz and I weren’t the only ones who cringed when we saw that! Perhaps you didn’t want to slow down the video, because we know you surely know better! If I may make a suggestion: perhaps next time after handling raw meat, just say to the viewers you’re pausing the video to wash your hands and you’ll be right back. Please, for the love of humanity, do this! LOL! We love ya Dr. Axe, but please don’t do that again!
