According to the World Health Organization (WHO), each year, Food-borne diseases affect one in 10 people and cause the loss of 33 million years of healthy life. In addition, they may become mortal, especially in children under 5 years of age. In fact, every year there are 420,000 deaths for this cause and 1 in 3 affects children.

 

Therefore, the Dr. Amalia Sánchez López, general doctor mediQuo - 24/7 medical chat where you can consult directly with doctors and health specialists - advises special care in summer, and explains that there are several factors that favor these poisonings and that it is necessary to know and avoid:

“On the one hand, there is one greater tendency to eat outside the house (barbacoas, picnics etc.), where security controls are not the same as in a domestic kitchen,” explains the Dr. Sanchez.

In addition, natural causes That's how they favor it. That is, the bacteria, which are present in the soil, air or water, grow faster in the heat months as the temperatures propitiate it.

And finally, there is a certain relaxation of the more basic handling patterns food. Actually, According to the OCU, the origin of more than 50% of cases of food poisoning is in households. “One of the most frequent food poisonings in the summer months is salmonelosisbut it is not the only one,” warns Dr. Sánchez. Cases of poisoning caused by Listeria monocytogenes or Escherichia coli.

Salmonellosis
“Verano and Salmonella are an inseparable binomial every year,” says the Doctor of mediQuo. This bacteria is naturally found in the intestine of humans and animals, so feces are a focus of food and water pollution.

Them foods more involved are usually raw eggs, in preparations like mayonnaise, or little cooked (the egg causes 23% of salmonella food toxiinfections in summer), poorly cooked birds (this type of white meat produces 5% of poisoning) and cooked foods that have been left at room temperature several hours.

Diarrhea, vomiting, fever and headache are some of the symptoms of salmonelosis.

Stop. avoid the risks of salmonelosis through the eggs, the Dr. Sánchez It recommends not to wash them, as the shell is very porous and moisture facilitates the penetration of bacteria in the interior, never use broken eggs, keep them always in the fridge and wash the dish where the raw egg has been beaten or manipulated. As for meat, though it seems obvious, cook it well to make sure it is not raw.

Escherichia coli
For his part, the Escherichia coli, is mostly present in raw or uncooked meat, raw milk or raw fresh products.

Them symptoms of the E. coli infection usually starts three or four days after exposure to the bacteria, although they may also appear the next day or more than a week later. Some of them are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, pain or tenderness and nausea and vomiting.

His prevention go by submitting the food to a careful cooking process in which the whole piece is cooked, especially the center, avoid the consumption of non-pastoralized milk or non-toxic water and disinfect the vegetables that are to be taken raw.

Listeria monocytogenes
“This bacteria is rapidly multiplying refrigerated food and ready to eat foodsuch as raw milk, vegetables or preservatives”, explains Dr. Sánchez.

The severity of a poisoning and symptoms that a person presents will depend on the amount of contaminated food ingested, the person and the type of organism that causes pollution.

The first symptoms usually appear between 2 and 6 hours after intake. The most common are stomach discomfort, diarrhea, fever, vomiting, abdominal cramps, dehydration, generalized weakness and headache.

For the general doctor mediQuo, the best prevention methods they go on to avoid prolonged storage of vegetables (although at cooling temperatures), clean well the surfaces and utensils with which raw food is handled, cook homogeneously and maintain a rigorous hygiene of the fridge.

“We cannot control the characteristics of the environment, but we can control the safety controls and the basic patterns of food handling,” says the Dr. Sánchez. “If you think you’re having the first symptoms of food poisoning, the best recommendation I can give is to ask in the chat to get out of doubt and be able to take action as soon as possible,” recommends Dr. Amalia Sánchez López, general doctor mediQuo.
