For example, you are especially vulnerable during the holiday/
vacation season, when your stomach health risk is greatly increased by the warmer weather and inappropriate storage of mass-prepared food such as buffets which are left out for prolonged periods of time; this can lead to bacteria multiplying at a more rapid rate.
A common characteristic that identifies food poisoning from other stomach health symptoms, is that all parties will experience the same stomach health problems following consumption of the same affected food or drink.
The bacteria that are often responsible are salmonella typhimurium, salmonella cholera and salmonella enteritidis.
These are present in all milk products, eggs and can cause
stomach symptoms of nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and fever.
