Food Safety

Food poisoning arises when we consume foods that are contaminated with bacteria like Salmonella and Escherichia coli, and their toxins.

Among the symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, fever and dehydration.

The symptoms usually appear six to 72 hours after the consumption of contiminated food.

Here are a few pointers for you to practise food safety.

* Scrub your hand clean! You don't want dirty hand touching your food.

* Veggies and fresh fruits like apples won't keep the doctor away if you don't wash them before eating them.

* Harmful microbes lurk in untreated water. Clean drinking water is what you should be downing.

* Raw meat can be loaded with harmful bacteria. Make sure the meat you eat is well-cooked.
