Q: My husband (who just had a bout with H.Pylori) is still calling Dr on phone about issues and I noticed he is eating Butternut squash but raw…is this ever recommended? Never heard of such a thing.I cant ask him as he refuses to tell me anything about his health.He hasnt seen a Dr since 1966 (ARMY) and had a colon/endoscope in Nov and had 12 large polyps removed and then had the H pylori.. Thank you,.Debi
A: Yes, eating raw butternut squash is safe. It is sometimes grated, or sliced thinly, into salads or coleslaws. See our page on Butternut Squash for nutritional information, and benefits.
