FOOD INFECTIONS: Start taking them seriously

We all know that gastrointestinal infections such as by Salmonella and Campylobacter from contaminated food can be very nasty. In a few cases, they can be fatal.

But they are much nastier, and more tenacious, than any of us realized, and could have an effect on our health up to a year after we were infected. New research from Denmark has gone so far as to claim that a food infection could be fatal 12 months later.

The researchers, from the Statens Serum Institute in Copenhagen, looked at the progress of 48,857 people after they had a food infection, and compared them with 487,138 who had not been infected. They found that those infected were three times as likely to die within a year as those in the healthy group, after taking into account other factors. This was a trend that also emerged six months after infection.

Not only can these infections have a serious long-term effect, they could also be far more dangerous in the immediate term.

So if you ever get a food infection, take it seriously. Seek out a herbal remedy, such as berberine, or a homeopathic nosode, to treat it.
