Potential Impacts of Food Borne Illness

Food borne Illness is also known as food poisoning. Food poisoning occurs as a result of contaminated food intake which consists of parasites, viruses, bacteria and other toxins.
 These contaminants get inside your body through different resources and make you ill. One of the most common sources of contamination is the infected food handler. These handlers neither wash their hands properly nor wear gloves which is a big health concern. Dirty kitchenware and service utensils are another source of infectivity. The food should be cooked at hot enough temperature and stored in refrigerator at desired temperature to avoid food poisoning.

There are various STM Publishers. The name of Bentham Science Publishers is highly established within the STM publication industry. Bentham Science has various journals and e-books based on food, safety issues related to food and nutrition. To view all these Bentham Journals, visit:
The symptoms of food poisoning start to develop within 2 to 6 hours after eating the contaminated food. The most common symptoms of Food Poisoning include diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, headaches and abdominal cramps.
Most of the food poisoning cases do not need any medical attention and you get recovery after few days of time. But in some cases, if proper safety measures are not taken, can result into severe worse conditions. Different safety measures should be taken in these cases to avoid making this condition even worse.

 You should drink plenty of water in order to overcome the fluid losses created by diarrhea and vomiting, avoid caffeinated beverages and dairy products, take light meals instead of heavy diet and get plenty of rest and sleep to help your body for a quick recovery.
