What Causes Food Poisoning?
Bacteria is the main reason that you might get food poisoning after eating something. Viruses and parasites can also contribute to the causes of food poisoning.
The most common cause of food poisoning is bacterial food poisoning. The usual bacteria to blame are called campylobacter which is normally present in raw or undercooked foods, unpasteurised milk or water that is untreated.
Another well known and also common cause of food poisoning is salmonella. This is a bacteria that is present in eggs, pork, raw poultry and also untreated water.
You may have also heard of Listeria which is found in ready to eat foods such as sandwiches, smoked salmon, pate, soft cheeses and sliced cooked meats.
There is also viral food poisoning which will spread more rapidly through cross contamination from human to human. One of the most commonly known ones is the Norovirus which causes very widespread symptoms of food poisoning. It can be found often in places such and schools and hospitals affecting the elderly, young and people who are very ill. It spreads by people consuming the infected food and then preparing food and spreading it further.
