Food Poisoning Info

Illness derived through food consumption (also referred to as foodborne disease) is any illness or disease that results from eating contaminated food. Contamination usually occurs via bacteria, viruses, or other parasites that contaminate food (intestinal helminths or 'stomach worms',) as well as chemical or natural toxins contained in food (like poisonous mushrooms, for instance.)

Food poisoning usually arises from improper handling, preparation, or food storage. Practicing good hygiene when preparing food (i.e. washing one's hands before, during and after) can reduce the chances of contracting an illness. It seems so simple, but regular hand-washing is the most effective defence against contracting food poisoning. Monitoring the food consumed to ensure it will not cause food poisoning is known as food safety. Foodborne diseases can sometimes also be caused by a variety of toxins that also affect the environment. 

Food poisoning can also be caused by pesticides and some medicines in food (antibiotics in dairy) and toxic substances contained in poisonous mushrooms, uncooked pork or even certain species reef fish.

A healthcare professional should be contacted immediately if suspicion of food poisoning exists. Some natural health products may help the body recover from the nastiness that is food poisoning.

Product Reviews

  • Delicious

    star

    This organic ACV is very easy to drink in warm water every morning. It was actually the really nice apple cider flavour, that is not too sharp that has kept me drinking it regularly. A previous brand i tried nearly put me off as it was so sour. I think it is a very reasonable price also and of course great that it is organic.

  • Never be without this product

    star

    I take ACV many times per day - generally just before food - this helps even out my blood sugar levels. It also helps digest a heavy meal, or a high carb meal. I also take it if my blood sugars drop - this takes away the "shakes". I take it every morning on an empty stomach before the gym for that burst of energy. I never get sick. This is a fantastic product. I take it everywhere with me. Highly recommend this for wonderful overall health.
