Posted on : May 28, 2023 by Clinic One on Diseases in Nepal

Summer is a season for outdoor activities, social gatherings, and seasonal eating because of the higher temperatures and longer days.

The summertime heat can, however, also foster the development of germs and other dangerous pathogens in food.

Food poisoning, a serious and potentially fatal condition that can result in dehydration, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, may result from this.

In this article, we’ll talk about the risks of food poisoning throughout the summer and offer some advice on staying healthy while still taking advantage of everything the season has to offer.  

Foodborne illness, also known as food poisoning, can be riskier in the summer for various reasons: 

  • Warm temperatures: Bacteria can multiply more quickly in food that has been left out in the heat since they thrive in warm conditions. 
  • Summertime is a popular time for picnics, barbecues, and other outdoor events where food is frequently left out for long periods of time, raising the danger of contamination. 
  • Food may not be cooked or stored properly, which raises the possibility of contamination and foodborne illness. 
  • High-risk food consumption: Items including raw eggs, undercooked meats, and unpasteurized dairy products may contain dangerous bacteria that can result in food poisoning. 

Dehydration, excruciating stomach pains, vomiting, diarrhea, and in severe cases, hospitalization or even death, are a few dangers of food poisoning.

Tips for Safe Eating 

To prevent foodborne disease, it is crucial to take the appropriate precautions, such as:  

  • Washing your hands properly before touching any food with soap and water. 
  • Cooking food perfectly, especially meats to avoid bacteria.  
  • Storing food in the right place and temperature so the food does not get spoiled. 
  • Avoiding risky foods that upset your stomach. 
  • Being careful when eating out cause sometimes eating out might upset your stomach. 
  • Storing foods in clean surfaces and containers. 

Therefore, we need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and also eat healthy foods.

Exercising and staying fit also helps you stay in shape and stay fit in general—your stamina increases.
