If you are celebrating a family occasion in a local restaurant, but after a lovely evening out, some of you start to become ill, there stands a good chance you have contracted food poisoning, something wherever you have eaten should try to avoid. In fairness to them, the bacteria that cause food poisoning can enter the food before it is supplied to them, and they might be totally unaware of it.
This is why all cases of food poisoning should be reported to the Foods Standards Agency (FSA) who will track the bacteria to its source, and make sure that whatever is being done wrong to allow the contamination to happen, is stopped immediately.

The more serious cases of food poisoning
For most of us, a case of food poisoning will last 24-48 hours before our body fights its off and we begin to return to normal. As you start to feel better, you will start to feel hungry but to start with should only eat foods that are easy to digest, maybe some dry toast.
If you have not started to improve after 48 hours, you should seek immediate medical attention because you could have one of the more serious forms of food poisoning. Every year there are people that are admitted to hospital with the condition, and every year there are people that die from it.
There are some groups of people that will probably be affected worse by food poisoning, such as the very young, the elderly, pregnant women and people with low immune systems, examples being cancer and HIV sufferers. Those that are badly affected by it can have their central nerve system permanently damaged.
