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.

  • It's a magic product, a cure-all.

    star

    It's just amazing. I'd felt tired and sore for the whole body for some time, but after taking this Waihi Bush Apple Cider Vinegar every morning, 1 table spoon in warm water for 1 week, I felt so much better, not sore any more, more energy. I am taking this every day, and will go on. It's a magic product, a cure-all.

    We've been using this on and off for a long time. Recently we've started taking it more regularly and have noticed a great improvement in immunity and general well being. It's also very pleasant tasting.
