Food Poisoning Info

Illness derived through food consumption (also referred to as foodborne disease) is any illness or disease that results from eating contaminated food. Contamination usually occurs via bacteria, viruses, or other parasites that contaminate food (intestinal helminths or 'stomach worms',) as well as chemical or natural toxins contained in food (like poisonous mushrooms, for instance.)

Food poisoning usually arises from improper handling, preparation, or food storage. Practicing good hygiene when preparing food (i.e. washing one's hands before, during and after) can reduce the chances of contracting an illness. It seems so simple, but regular hand-washing is the most effective defence against contracting food poisoning. Monitoring the food consumed to ensure it will not cause food poisoning is known as food safety. Foodborne diseases can sometimes also be caused by a variety of toxins that also affect the environment. 

Food poisoning can also be caused by pesticides and some medicines in food (antibiotics in dairy) and toxic substances contained in poisonous mushrooms, uncooked pork or even certain species reef fish.

A healthcare professional should be ed immediately if suspicion of food poisoning exists. Some natural health products may help the body recover from the nastiness that is food poisoning.

  • Soothing tea

    I take this after lunch every day and it is a calming and soothing drink. I take it to help digestion and strengthen my immune system and have noticed I have less pain in my joints, in particular my elbows. Maybe this is because ginger is suppose to help inflammation. I will be ordering more.

    I've tried many different cider vinegars over the years, organic and with the mother included. This one has a pleasant and mild taste so great if you don't like the sharper tasting varieties.
