Prevention of food borne illness begins at home with good food preparation technique. Foods should be cooked thoroughly. This especially applies to eggs, poultry, and meat. A meat thermometer can be used to measure the internal temperature of a meat dish. :arrow: :arrow: :|

Leftovers should be refrigerated immediately so that bacteria and viruses do not have time to start growing. Wash fruits and vegetables well before eating. This removes dirt, pesticides, chemicals, or other infectious agents used on, or exposed to, the foods in the fields or storage facilities. Wash hands routinely before and after handling food will help prevent the spread of infection. :x :x :P :P :o

Clean counters and other areas that are used to clean, prepare, and assemble foods thoroughly. Cross contamination of food is common and can cause food poisonings. :x :( ;)

For example, a cutting board and knife used to cut raw chicken should be washed thoroughly before cutting up fruit and vegetables to prevent the spread of Salmonella. :lol: :D :D

In restaurants, meals are prepared by others; health inspectors check restaurants routinely and their reports on sanitary practices are usually available online. Make certain that the food ordered is thoroughly cooked, especially meats such hamburger. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Pregnant women and people who have compromised immune systems, for example, those undergoing chemotherapy or are taking medication such as prednisone, should avoid eating soft cheeses like camembert, brie, blue, and feta because of the risk of contracting Listeria. :( ;) :twisted:

In the Listeria outbreak of 2011 in the US, people should be advised to avoid eating cantaloupes from the suspected source, and to be very sure all fruits and vegetables are cleaned thoroughly prior to eating, no matter the source. :( :( :cry:

What is the prognosis for food poisoning?
Fortunately, most cases of food poisoning resolve within a few hours and the affected individual returns to normal function.
Depending upon the cause of the infection, and the patient's underlying medical condition, the infection may cause significant organ damage and even death. :? :? :?

Gastroenteritis (viral gastroenteritis, stomach flu) is an infection caused by a variety of viruses that results in vomiting and/or diarrhea. Even though it is often called the "stomach flu," it is not caused by the influenza viruses. Viruses that can cause gastroenteritis (stomach flu) include: rotaviruses, adenoviruses, caliciviruses, astroviruses, Norwalk virus, and a group of Noroviruses. Gastroenteritis is not caused by bacteria. The main symptoms of gastroenteritis include vomiting and watery diarrhea, however, headache, fever, and abdominal cramps (stomach ache) may also be present. :o :o :o :o

Abdominal pain is pain in the belly and can be acute or chronic. Causes include inflammation, distention of an organ, and loss of the blood supply to an organ. Abdominal pain can reflect a major problem with one of the organs in the abdomen such as the appendix, gallbladder, large and small intestine, pancreas, liver, colon, duodenum, and spleen. :idea: :idea: :| :|
