There are 81 million or more cases of food-borne illnesses every year, resulting in 9,000 deaths.
E.  coli 0157:H7 causes over 20,000 illnesses and kills up to 500 people annually.
Two to four million illnesses occur in the U.S.  each year from salmonella.

The list goes on.  But you do not have to be on it.

Which foods and food preparation practices place you at a higher risk of illness
How to eat safely in restaurants, at parties, and while traveling
Why taking antibiotics and antacids puts you at greater risk
How to distinguish between food poisoning and the "stomach flu"
What to do if you're sick...and when to get medical attention fast
