Food Poisoning is when you eat food that contains harmful bacteria or toxins. The effects of food poisoning can be very threatening because food poisoning can cause serious illnesses and diseases such as nausea, vomiting, watery diarrhoea, abdominal pain, cramps and fever. The effects of food poisoning start after a few hours. Signs that you have food poisoning and that you should see a doctor is if you are vomiting blood, have severe diarrhoea, difficulty speaking, double vision, trouble swallowing or muscle weakness.
Some ways to prevent food poisoning is to make sure your hands are clean when you touch food you will eat. Make sure that you separate raw foods from cooked foods because you might eat the bacteria from the raw food. Make sure that if you wash raw vegetables you clean them with clean mineral water. If you are unsure of a food and am not sure if it is out of date then don’t eat it! You wouldn’t want to test it out.
I learned so much about food poisoning after I researched food poisoning for my health buzz. I have started being much more careful with what I eat and how it is prepared and if it is safe to eat. I think that now a days people are not paying much attention to what and how they eat. I think that everyone needs to understand that food poisoning is not a pleasant thing to have and that it is something that everyone can get.
