Food poisoning occurs when a person eats food that has been contaminated by a bacteria, virus, or toxin that causes illness. Often fecal matter contaminates the food. The most common types of bacteria that cause food poisoning are:
- E. coli
- Hepatitis A
Devastating Long Term Effects
Food poisoning can last a lifetime. When food safety regulations are not followed, contamination by bacteria such as salmonella and e. coli can become a serious health hazard for consumers.
Symptoms of food poisoning are gastrointestinal symptoms that can include diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. However, there are many instances in which a case of food poisoning can mean long-term, more serious issues, requiring hospitalization and extensive treatment.
- Kidney failure
- Chronic arthritis
- Brain and nerve damage
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
48 million people suffer from some form of food poisoning every year and the Health and Human Services states that 3,000 people die each year from food poisoning related illness.
