Hidden Epidemic: Food Poisoning

One in four Americans gets a food-related illness each year, despite the safety of the American food supply. Some of the disease causing agents include Norwalk-like viruses, campylobacter, and salmonella. According to a study reported by to the CDC in 1999, 76 million Americans fell ill due to food, resulting in 5,000 deaths. However, many cases go unreported; medical experts estimate that for every case of salmonella poisoning, 36 others are not reported. The United States is increasingly importing food from around the world, which could add to the problem. Doctors advise simple preventive tactics, such as handwashing, not eating raw meat and eggs, and washing cutting boards thoroughly. Yahoo News, February 19, 2009
