7 ways of contamination through food or beverages that you should be aware of when travelling!

Hey everyone!

I know that when we travel we love tasting different foods of the country, just be careful with some details so you don't get contaminated and you enjoy great holidays or a fruitful business trip especially in countries with poor hygiene!

Careful with tap water:  it's one of the leading causes of death worldwide!! Common diseases are diarrhea, rotavirus, and cholera especially in countries where hygiene is not a priority. Buy bottled water and always wash from outside any can of juice, soft drinks, beer that you may have. Also don't brush your teeth with tap water.

 Ice: because the water might be contaminated, consuming ice is also not a good idea, unless it's from bottle water or boiled water

 When you eat in the streets or in buffets and the food is not covered, there's a risk that flies deliver bacteria from other places they flew to before or even put their feces in the food, so it's better to eat in places where food is covered if you see that there are lots of flies in this place

 wash your hands and make sure that the person preparing your food has his hands clean to prevent you from many diseases

 Order hot meals to avoid bacterial contamination thru cold meals

 Be careful to eat food exposed to the sun, like shrimps at the beach of Rio de Janeiro for example! Any food in the streets or beach should be avoided especially in hot weather because bacteria multiply fast in such climate

 Avoid raw foods even fruits and vegetables that might have been washed with contaminated water. Always boil, remove the skin and cook in such situations where water is not clean.

With all this care you can only enjoy your trip!
