One of the important points in consuming vegetables is their freshness. Vegetables are foods that spoil quickly and can quickly become infected with a variety of pests. So if you want to use their properties, you have to consume them fresh. If you see any pests in vegetables, avoid eating them because they can cause many problems in the body. Lettuce is one of those foods that you can eat raw, but before consuming it should be washed well with cold water.
