the consumption of food. Most cases of food poisoning are caused by
foodborne pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and prions or parasites that
contaminate the food. The food contamination is usually a result of improper

pesticides or medicines within the food too can cause food poisoning.

settled down, it's a good idea to ease back into a light, healthy diet. But right

cereal, pudding and crackers are a good start.

potentially irritate the stomach further.

food poisoning drains your body of essential electrolytes. You can help restore
them with this very helpful beverage.
Simply use a fruit juice and add about a half of a teaspoon of honey and a
pinch of salt. This solution is rich in potassium, glucose, and sodium chloride,
which will help in the rehydration of your body.
