There are many great places throughout the UK where people go on holiday every year. Devon is arguably one of the most attractive, since it has a lot to offer and provides people with the English Riviera, lots of attractions, dramatic coastline and great scenery all over the county.
We’re all familiar with stories about people who have been abroad on holiday only to fall victim to a stomach bug of some kind. While these are rare it is easy to think they don’t happen at all when you go on holiday in the UK.
Certainly you don’t have to worry about water supplies and whether or not they are okay to drink. However there is still the potential for food poisoning in Devon to occur (or indeed anywhere else in the UK you might visit).
These cases are rare and most people will enjoy a superb holiday with nothing of the kind taking place. However where food is concerned there is always a potential for things to go wrong and bacteria to be present. If this should occur it would put you at risk of food poisoning in Devon or anywhere else in the country you might go on holiday.
What happens when you get food poisoning?
There are a number of things that can happen. For example you can usually get stomach cramps and sickness, diarrhoea or both. In some instances you might get headaches and depending on the bacteria that have caused the condition, a fever might also happen.
In any situation where food poisoning is concerned, the condition is not pleasant for the person who goes through it. That’s why it is a good idea to check the restaurants you eat out at while on holiday in Devon or elsewhere, to make sure they are rated highly.
