Botulism doesn't swell cans ,which is why the only way to safely neutralize it is 15 minutes heat in an open pan. It can exist in a perfectly normal looking can. Cooking every can or jar after opening it is the only safe way to go.
Vegetarians can suffer from dietary deficiencies as a result, like zinc deficiency. Eating mostly meat didn't stop my ancestors from living past 100. If you want to eat only healthy food, read the labels, and don't eat anything your grandmother wouldn't recognize.
