Can food-borne illness be prevented?
You can reduce your chances of contracting food-borne illness by practicing good hygiene measures, such as: taking care to wash your hands when handling food, taking care to eat and use water only from safe sources; taking care when washing or bathing, and; avoiding foods that are particularly prone to spoilage and contamination such as meat, dairy products and eggs. Vaccines are available for some (though not all) food-borne illnesses.
