Reporting your case of food poisoning is very important
In all honesty it is not always the fault of whatever restaurant, café, takeaway, canteen or wherever else you could have gotten food poisoning. The food could have been already contaminated before it even reached them, it could have been one of their suppliers. This is the reason why if you ever become ill with food poisoning you should always notify the Foods Standards Agency about what happened so that they can track the source of the contamination and put a stop to it. If you do not do this then many other people could suffer the same if not worse fate as you.
Severe food poisoning can have serious consequences
With most cases, food poisoning will clear itself within a few days if the victims gets some rest, but when the food poisoning is severe it could make the victim severely ill and they could end up being hospitalised, the biggest problem is usually dehydration from lack of fluids. Drinking plenty of water is vital to a fast recovery, but it is better to take small sips often rather that big gulps occasionally. In the worst cases, food poisoning can cause damage to the central nervous system or even in some cases death.
