Why do people eat their steak raw?

Chef's answer
though you probably should. Why do people eat rare or medium rare meat when it looks raw or uncooked and possibly cause foodborne illness? The short answer is flavor, juiciness and texture. Rare and medium rare meat i more juicy and has a texture and taste that many people find more appealing (I include myself).
