60% of outbreaks are due to unknown sources

60% of outbreaks are due to unknown sources


It is important to pay special attention to the food you eat at outdoor venues, school cafeterias, large social functions or restaurants, as you could suffer from food poisoning due to food or beverages that contain common bacteria (such as staphylococcus), parasites, viruses or toxins produced by germs.


The vast majority of food poisoning cases are isolated or sporadic. Contamination may happen when coming in contact with raw meats containing bacteria or while handling and preparing food. Cooking utensils, cutting tables and other kitchen tools that are not totally clean are frequent sources of food poisoning. Other sources include salads, dairy products left out of the refrigerator too long, raw fruits or vegetables that are not washed properly, or undercooked meats and eggs.


Infants and elderly people have the greatest risk for food poisoning. You are also at higher risk if you have a serious medical condition, such as kidney disease or diabetes, a weakened immune system or are currently pregnant.
The symptoms of food poisoning generally start within 2 to 6 hours of eating the food, and may include abdominal cramps, diarrhea (may be bloody), fever and chills, headache, nausea, vomiting and weakness. It is very important to avoid dehydration.


Self care: Take paracetamol for the fever and aches and pains. Place a bottle of hot water or a heating pad on your stomach to relief abdominal pain. Drink clear fluids or ice chips. Later, try eating soft foods when you are able to eat without vomiting. Avoid dairy products for several days. It is recommended to avoid caffeinated beverages. Verify with your doctor before taking any anti-diarrheal medication.


Most people fully recover from the most common types of food poisoning within 12 to 48 hours. If the symptoms persist, it is advisable to consult or visit a physician, states nutritionist Natalia Quirós.
