Food Poisoning Can Be A Serious Illness

Food poisoning is not always easy to spot. Yet it is not a rare occurrence, often going undiscovered until the sufferers are in serious trouble.

For example, let’s say you just went to a fast food restaurant and ate a burger. It tasted a bit strange or unusual; however, you trusted the restaurant to provided quality food, so you finished eating it anyway. A little while later, you begin to feel uneasy. Your friend or healthcare provider asks you the following questions about associated symptoms upon questioning you about your discomfort in order to supply healing treatment:    

Do you:

a. Feel like vomiting or experience diarrhea and abdominal cramping?

b. Suddenly have a fever?

c. Later complain of a loss of appetite and feeling tired?

If your answer is YES to any of the above points, it can be a case of food poisoning. Food poisoning occurs when a person eats food that is contaminated with microbial activity and toxins. Food that is not refrigerated or made with unclean techniques or is undercooked can result in food poisoning; diary products when kept out for a long time are more likely to get spoilt, also causing food poisoning.

Food poisoning can happen anywhere; at parties, social functions, weddings, etc, anywhere food is prepared in large quantities. The causative agents are bacteria, poisonous mushrooms viruses, parasites and pesticides sprayed on fruits and vegetables. And poor sanitation i.e. not washing hands properly can cause food poisoning.

Treatment of Food Poisoning

Here are treatment tidbits and tips for food poisoning:

1) The most common types of food poisoning are curable within a short span.

2) A person suffering food poisoning should drink fluids like juices, but avoid milk or coffee or tea. This will help regain fluids and strength in your body.

3) Electrolyte can be given to children (check with your pediatrician first, though!).

4) The sufferer must not eat solid foods and curds, cheese etc until the diarrhea has stopped.

5) In some emergency or higher degree food poisoning cases, drinking fluids is not possible. Intravenous fluids are then used by doctors to regain the fluid balance of the body.

Always check the expiration dates on the food products you buy. And store home cooked food in the refrigerator. Remember, food poisoning is usually not so fatal. But why take the risk?
