  • ‚ÄčRaw eggs contain bacteria that can make you sick. A side effect of many cancer treatments is they weaken your immune system, making it harder for your body to fight off infections. For this reason, you need to be especially careful about food safety. Make sure you cook eggs to 74 degrees Celsius (165 degrees Fahrenheit) to kill off any harmful bacteria. In recipes that call for raw or undercooked eggs, use pasteurized eggs or egg whites. Pasteurization means that the food has been heated to destroy any bacteria that could make you sick.
