Food Poisoning and Foodborne Diseases

Food Poisoning and Foodborne Diseases

The uneaten pizza lying on the table from last night…The milk left in the car a couple of hours ago…The seafood ordered in a restaurant. Sometimes eating ordinary foods like these can cause serious and painful illnesses. how can food that we expect to nourish our bodies be harmful to us? What can we do to prevent an attack of food poisoning? 

In Food Poisoning and Foodborne Diseases, author Sara L. Latta addresses these concerns and reviews the different microbes and toxins in foods that make us sick. Readers will learn about the government’s investigations to locate, prevent, and stop an outbreak as well as the medical treatment used to care for victims. Personal accounts from sufferers help make this book a valuable resource for food safety and health information.
