Cooking can help us become more independent.

It also stops you from spreading germs from your uncooked food.

You should use a separate chopping board for meats from your other ingredients.
Make sure your knives are sharp.
When you keep your knives sharp it stops you from slipping when chopping ingredients.
Cook your food thoroughly.
