Food Poisoning

1 What is Food Poisoning?

Food poisoning is a food borne disease caused by having foods contaminated by harmful organisms like bacteria, viruses and parasites.

These harmful organisms are mostly found in raw meat, chicken fish and eggs, but may be found in other food types also.

They easily grow on food left open and stored for a long time before used.

Food poisoning can also result when people do not wash their hands before
