Is it for sure to eat the beans even if ns wash and cook them?

even if i don't wash and cook them

Washing and also cooking them makes them even an ext safe. I think most vegetables space absolutely finest raw, particularly from a taste standpoint, however boiling/steaming/microwaving will get rid of anything that could be ~ above or in them germ-wise.
