It Was Probably Something You Ate by Nicols Fox, Nichols Fox, Nicols Fox

Almost everyone occasionally feels nauseous, runs a slight fever, has an upset stomach or diarrhea, and dismisses them as the onset of flu or just a bug. Fox contends that more often than not these symptoms evidence a food-borne illness. In fact, she estimates that 81 million people in the United States suffer from such an illness each year. A journalist recognized for her work in this area, Fox itemizes the types of pathogens associated with food disease, which extend beyond the familiar Salmonella and Escherichia coli. She reports on the changes in food production and consumption and why eating rare hamburgers and eggs served sunny-side-up has become a risky endeavor. Almost half the book focuses on preventive measures for consumers to protect themselves and their children, whether at home or traveling.
