It is important to make sure that what we put inside our mouth is safe and we can do that if we make sure that it is not raw or if it is cooked and clean. But over cooking your food can also be a bad thing to do because that means you are actually eating burned stuff and in eating that, could result to indigestion. The more cooked the food is the harder it is to digest, so keep cooking only to a brim, not over cooked and no raw parts.
