If you’re suffering from diarrhea, vomiting, or flu-like symptoms, then there is a chance that you’ve contracted food poisoning. Watch this video to learn about this health problem and how it occurs.
Healthcare professionals refer to cases of food poisoning as foodborne illnesses, and they are commonly caused by viruses, bacteria, allergens, toxins, parasites, or molds that are on or in food. A person can become infected when they eat food that is contaminated by, for example, salmonella, listeria, or E. coli.
