Be aware of the microorganisms that cause food poisoning.
Salmonella is the leading cause of food-poisoning-related hospitalizations as well as the number one cause of food-poisoning-related deaths in the US. Stay educated so you can avoid it!
E. coli is known to cause urinary tract infections, and most strains of this bacteria are antibiotic resistant.
Yersinia infection typically leads to acute gastroenteritis, but if left untreated, it can cause chronic inflammation of the eyes, kidneys, heart, and joints. It can also trigger Graves’ disease (an autoimmune thyroid condition).
C. Difficile is a superbug that causes a condition known as pseudomembranous colitis. The most characteristic symptom is painful, crampy diarrhea.
