Food poisoning is a common condition which often strikes victims with little warning. Many people who develop food poisoning symptoms fail to receive medical advice or visit their GP for assistance, so the number of people who are affected by food poisoning is difficult to establish.
Food poisoning cases have risen in recent years, which may be due to our changing lifestyles and increased range of convenience foods that are available. People consume more ready-to-eat foods, and foods that are pre-packed, which may be the reason why people are more susceptible to developing this debilitating condition.
Food poisoning: the symptoms
The symptoms vary depending on the severity of the contamination, but can include:
- Stomach cramps;
- Headaches; and
The causes of food poisoning
Food poisoning may be caused by many different pathogens. The most common cause of food poisoning is bacterial contamination. Bacteria such as Campoylobacter, Salmonella and Listeria are common culprits for people becoming ill through food poisoning. These bacteria live in raw and undercooked foods such as meat, poultry, eggs and dairy produce. If these foods are not prepared, stored and cooked properly then the number of bacteria may rise, causing the food to become contaminated. Once consumed, this food can cause food poisoning symptoms to develop as the food is broken down in the body.
Other causes of food poisoning may be viral, with Norovirus being one of the most common causes of viral food poisoning. This virus can be passed from human to human and through cross-contamination from human to food, through insufficient hand washing, poor hygiene and poor food preparation.
