I have always thought that at least "normal" potatoes (I do not know
how to call them in English) were not not edible unless cooked. But
what would be wrong with raw eggs?

Since after all we are not into neoprimitivism, but rather technology,
why not produce bacteria- and parasites-free meat? Not such a hard
feat, I would say. Even though "bacteria charge" seems to be important
at least for gastronomic purposes. But be reminded that we eat here
our steaks in 15, as opposed to the US 40, days of dry-aging...
