Is it true that it is necessary to use bleach to kill bacteria and worms in vegetables before consuming them?

I'd just use fast running 'cold' water, I would'nt like the 'bleach' taste.

Cripes no!!! You are going to poison yourself. OMG just wash them lightly in running water. Don't add chemicals to your food!

Simply wash the damn vegetables off in the water.
Does eating blanch sound like a smart thought?

You want to use white vinegar solution.
Pour 2 tbsp of white vinegarinto a container
Add lime juice
Pour in this solution a cup of lukewarm water
Stir with a small spoon
Pour everything into a empty spray bottle
Sprinkle each fruit or vegetable
Wipe with a clean paper towel

Depends are where you are.
Here in modern times in the US, no, you don't need to bleach your veges.
But in some countries an American would be wise to do this so they don't pick up weird bacteria or parasites.
Years ago I knew a woman who raised her children in South America while her husband worked for a large oil company. She had to bleach all her veges to keep the family from getting sick. She'd use a small amount of bleach in a sinkful of water and soak them, then rinse them well...she said her salads always tasted slightly of bleach...

No nothing of the sort, I eat cups of raw vegetables everyday. Rinse and eat - nothing more is needed.

I submit, you have been advised wrong Wash the vegies if eating raw or blanch if eating cooked.

No haven't you ever heard of blanching? That's where you heat up boiling water and you dip your vegetables into it for 30 seconds.
