7 Food Poisoning Dangers You May Not Know About

7 Food Poisoning Dangers You May Not Know About
==============================================
Food poisoning is more common than you think–even in healthy food. Depending on what you eat on a daily basis, there could be some kind of food danger that you may not be aware of.
Listeria:
Dairy products made with raw milk, including yogurt and soft cheeses like Brie, feta, and Mexican queso, can harbor listeria. Because listeria can live at colder temperatures, simply refrigerating these foods won’t kill the bacteria. People at highest risk of getting sick include the elderly, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems.
What To Do: Check the label. Make sure it’s clearly marked “pasteurized.”

Sometimes listeria finds its way into a food processing factory, where it can live for years. Heat kills listeria, but contamination may happen after cooking, but before packaging — for example, if a food is placed back on a counter that had raw meat on it.
What To Do: Never keep pre-cooked or ready-to-eat foods past their use-by date. Heat hot dogs and lunch meats until steaming (165 F) before eating.
Salmonella
----------------
Poultry and Eggs
Salmonella bacteria can taint any food, although there’s a greater risk from animal products because of contact with animal feces. In chickens, it can infect eggs before the shell forms, so even clean, fresh eggs may harbor salmonella. Symptoms include stomach cramps, fever, and diarrhea 12 to 72 hours after exposure. Illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days.
What To Do:
---------------------
Never eat raw or lightly cooked eggs. Cook poultry to 165 F. Keep raw poultry separate from cooked poultry and other foods. Wash hands, cutting boards, utensils, and countertops after handling.

Chips, crackers, soup, peanut butter, even frozen meals may pose a slight risk for salmonella infection. One salmonella outbreak was linked to peanut butter and packaged foods made with peanuts, including granola bars and cookies. In cases like these, salmonella bacteria at a processing plant can contaminate many products, which must then be recalled.
What To Do: Never use a product that has been recalled — immediately return it to the store or throw it away. Heating foods thoroughly to 165 F can kill salmonella bacteria.
E. coli:

Pasteurization uses heat to kill bacteria. Since most juices you’ll find at the grocery store have been pasteurized, they pose no risk. However, unpasteurized juices and ciders sold at farms, stands, or in health food stores, can harbor E. coli. The bacteria can also get into raw milk as a result of unclean milking equipment, or manure-soiled or infected udders.
What To Do: Buy only products that have been pasteurized. If you’re not sure, boil before drinking.
E. coli:
---------
E. coli lives in the intestines of cattle and can contaminate beef during the slaughtering process. Ground beef is especially risky, because the bacteria can spread when meat is ground up. Symptoms of E. coli infection include severe abdominal cramps, watery diarrhea, and vomiting. The illness typically develops several days after exposure and can be severe in vulnerable people. It lasts about a week.
Safety: Cook meat thoroughly (160 F, no pink in the center). Do not put a cooked burger back on a plate that held raw meat. Wash utensils, including the meat thermometer, with warm, soapy water
Botulism:
---------------
Botulism is a rare, possibly fatal illness linked to improperly canned or preserved foods. Home-canned foods are especially at risk, as well as honey, cured meats, and fermented, smoked, or salted fish. Babies have the highest risk of getting sick. Symptoms include cramps, vomiting, breathing problems, difficulty swallowing, double vision, and weakness or paralysis. If you suspect botulism poisoning,
Safety: Never give honey to children under 12 months. Throw away bulging cans, leaking jars, or foul-smelling preserved foods — or if liquid spurts out upon opening. Sterilize home-canned foods by cooking at 250 F for 30 minutes.

Your immune system is compromised due to the drugs you take. Hence a greater risk from any infection including Swine flu. Avoid getting in contact with patients. If somehow you got the contact, meet your physician who will give you prophylactic antiviral Oseltamivir probably. Further frequent hand wash , wearing a good mask will suffice

It is a statistically proven fact that smokers and other tobacco users are more likely to develop disease, suffer miserably later in life and die earlier than are people who dont use tobacco. I have experience in successfully making people quit smoking through a customized smoking cessation program which includes counseling medications and support do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I am suffering from severe acidity and this is leading to loose motion.
Let me know the solution.
Acidity usually is not the reason for loose stools. Still I can try to help you for the same. Avoid eating spicy and oily food. Avoid heavy meals. Instead prefer small frequent portions. Avoid taking stress. Remember 3 causes - hurry worry & curry will cause acidity. For loose stools. Include natural probiotics in your diet like curd. And eat 2-3 bananas in a day. Still no relief then you will need to start medications. But after more detailed history and a tentative diagnosis. Good luck. Tc.

My husband doesn't like using condoms. Is it safe to have sex without condoms when i'm on pills? Are there any chances of STDs?

Doctor of Naturopathy & Natural Medicines, DM - Clinical Haematology

Ask Free Question
Its ok to not use condoms but make sure if you are not willing to be pregnant than your husband should make sure that he doesn't ejects inside the vagina, secondly which pills you are using there are various kinds of pills like abortion pills, pre birth control pills, vaginal pills etc. Whatever pills you use always remember they are not healthy for your body and you are going against the nature and against the natural forces of your body. The old age method is- if your husband has still ejected inside your vagina immediately go and urinate sitting in indian style while urination and never in western pots, ask your husband to be extra careful and remind him about the harm of these pills, enjoy your sex life but not in stress.

It is possible that the previous treatment was stopped prematurely because the treatment needs to be continued for at least 2 weeks following disappearance of the skin rashes even in case of superficial fungal infection. In certain cases if superficial fungal skin infection is coming recurrently then some other measures also need to be taken. Please try to keep the area as dry as possible. Try not to wear very tight clothes. The underwears and dresses needs to be washed regularly and dried in hot sun. Please avoid using the same jeans pant for weeks together. Now since skin rashes are there it needs medication, its better to consult a dermatologist.
