    All you need to know about salmonella

    Salmonella is a type of bacteria that is often associated with food poisoning. It can result in people becoming extremely ill. In some cases it can even result in death. Anyone that has ever suffered from food poisoning will tell you it is not pleasant. It is much more violent than just the flu. In many instances salmonella is detected when a family or a group of people that have all eaten at the same place become very ill.

    The onset of salmonella doesnĂ*t happen right away. It can take place a few hours after a person has eaten foods with the bacteria in it. In some instances the food poisoning doesnĂ*t show up for a full three days. This makes it harder to track it back to the source. Once the symptoms start a person may be violently ill for up to seven days. It depends on the person and how much of the bacteria they have been exposed to.

    Salmonella has been tracked back to various types of restaurants from time to time. There have also been food recalls from items you can get at the grocery store due to it. The key is to get the word out immediately to help prevent more people from becoming ill. This is why so many companies have product codes on their foods. By letting the public know which codes may be infected with the salmonella they can encourage consumers to throw it out.

    It is very important for a person to seek immediate medical treatment if they fear they may have salmonella. A course of antibiotics can help to offset the full effects of it. Some individuals have to be hospitalized for a couple of days in order to ensure a full recovery. Young children and the elderly are the most likely to die from salmonella without proper medical care.

    Should you test positive for salmonella, it is important for you to provide as much information as you can. This will allow health officials to track down the source of the bacteria. It may be food items in your home, that you had at a large gathering, or you consumed at a restaurant. Their goal will to be to get in touch with others that may be infected as well.

    Salmonella is a very serious type of food poisoning that people can get. It is important to know the symptoms of it so you can get medical treatment for it. This type of bacteria will affect your intestines and infect your bloodstream. The longer it goes untreated the harder it will be to recover. Some people die from salmonella poisoning as they donĂ*t seek medical treatment for it soon enough.

    In the beginning, the symptoms often seem very similar to those of the flu. This is why some people donĂ*t see a doctor for a few days. Since the flu shouldnĂ*t last longer than that they know they are seriously ill. Salmonella can take a full week to run its course from the body. Abdominal cramps are the most common symptom of salmonella. They may be mild or very severe depending on how much bacteria is in the body.

    Many individuals also suffer from a high fever. One of the biggest concerns though is diarrhea. This can easily lead a person with salmonella to become dehydrated. This is the biggest sign that a person has salmonella and needs to see a doctor for antibiotics. There are various types of tests that can be done from the blood, urine, or feces of a person in order to correctly diagnose if they have salmonella or not.

    There are some other symptoms of salmonella that have been documented but they are rare. There are individuals that have reported that their joints are achy, their eyes are dry and irritated, and that it is very painful for them when they go to the bathroom.

    All you need to know about salmonella prevention

    Salmonella Prevention

    Salmonella is definitely a very serious issue and you want to do all you can to prevent it. This means you need to be conscious about the proper handling of foods. You may not be aware but it is animal feces that are responsible for the bacteria found in salmonella. That means any type of food that comes from an animal is potentially at risk. One of the main food items we get from animals are meats.

    Always make sure you wash your hands with soap and water before you touch them. Make sure the surface where you process it is also cleaned. After you are done, you will need to wash your hands again so you donĂ*t get it anywhere else. Poultry seems to be the type of meat where salmonella is the most prevalent. Make sure you cook the foods all the way in order to kill any such germs that may be found in them. Individuals that enjoy their meat very rare are at the greatest risk of salmonella poisoning.

    Too many people are in a hurry when they are cooking foods. They donĂ*t take the time to wash off cutting boards after cutting meat on it. They move right on to slicing vegetables on it. As a result, cross contamination takes place. You may be spreading very harmful germs doing this to everyone that will eat dinner with you. Take the time to use a separate cutting board for each action or to wash it thoroughly with soap and hot water between uses.

    Various types of foods that contain eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, and similar ingredients need to be kept refrigerated. Picnics can be fun but unless the potato salad and macaroni salad are on ice I would suggest skipping them. As they sit out at room temperature or in the sun that bacteria related to salmonella can start to breed.

    Education is a big part of preventing salmonella. Too many people donĂ*t realize the risks they are putting themselves at. Learning proper techniques for cooking and keeping foods at the right temperature are important. If you are in doubt as to an item sitting out too long it is best to just throw it out.
