10 foods that cause stomach pain
The foods that can increase the risk of infection and food poisoning are those that are eaten raw, poorly cooked or poorly washed, and that can contain microorganisms or toxins that cause irritation and inflammation of the intestine and lead to the emergence of some symptoms, such as vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain.
In addition, it is important to remember that children and embarassed women are more likely to have intestinal infections and have more serious symptoms, as they have a weaker immune system, which is why they should not eat this type of food.
See the continuation of the 10 foods that most produce food poisoning and infection:
1. Huevos crudos or poco cocidos
Crude or poorly cooked skin can contain the Salmonella bacteria, which causes severe symptoms of intestinal infection such as fever, colic, severe diarrhea, vomiting, bleeding in the stomach and headache.
To prevent this problem, you should always consume cooked eggs and avoid using creams and salsas with raw eggs, especially for children, as they are more sensitive to diarrhea and vomiting. See more about the symptoms of salmonellosis.
2. Raw salad
The raw ensaladas may be at risk of being contaminated if the vegetables are not washed and sanitized. Consuming raw fruits and vegetables, especially outside the house, can be a risk mainly for children and women who are more likely to be affected by foodborne illnesses such as toxoplasmosis and cysticercosis.
To avoid this problem, you should always wash all the vegetables by placing them in removal for 30 minutes in water with white vinegar in the proportion of 1 liter of water for every 1 tablespoon of white vinegar. After removing the food from the water, wash with running water to remove excess water and vinegar.
Canned foods can be contaminated with bacteria Clostridium botulinum, which must be present in foods such as hearts of palm, sausages and pickled cucumbers. This bacterium causes botulism, a serious illness that can cause loss of body movements.
To prevent this disease, it is necessary to avoid the consumption of preserved foods that are in swollen or battered cans, when the liquid in the canned food is cloudy and dark.
4. Undercooked meats
Raw or poorly cooked meats can be contaminated with microorganisms such as the protozoan Toxoplasma gondii, which causes toxoplasmosis, or the larvae of the taenia, which causes taeniasis.
That’s why you should avoid eating undercooked meats, especially when you are not sure of the origin and quality of the meat, since only the proper cooking can kill all the microorganisms present in the food.
5. Sushi and seafood
The consumption of raw or poorly stored fish and shellfish, as can happen with sushi, oysters and fish, can cause intestinal infections that cause inflammation in the stomach and intestine, causing nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
To prevent contamination, you should avoid consuming sushi in unknown places and with a hygiene bag, oysters sold on the beach without being refrigerated or fresh fish, with a strong odor and bland or gelatinous appearance, which indicates that the meat is not suitable for it. consumption.
6. Unpasteurized milk
Unpasteurized milk, which is raw milk, is rich in various bacteria that can cause intestinal infections, causing illnesses such as salmonellosis and listeriosis, generating symptoms such as colic, vomiting and diarrhea.
Therefore, you should always consume pasteurized milk, which is sold refrigerated in supermarkets, or UHT milk, which is cajita milk, since these products undergo treatment at high temperatures to eliminate the bacteria present in the milk.
7. Quesos blandes
The bland quesos like queso brie, cuajada and camembert are rich in water, which facilitates the proliferation of bacteria such as listeria, which can cause headaches, temblores, convulsions and meningitis, and can even cause death in the most serious cases.
To avoid this problem, you should prefer harder cheeses or processed cheeses, which are manufactured under security, in addition to avoiding the consumption of cheeses that are not refrigerated, which are usually sold on holidays and on the beaches.
8. Mayonnaise and salsas
The mayonesa and homemade salsas, hechas con huevos crudos what stays in the fridge for a long time are rich in bacteria that can cause intestinal infection, such as fecal coliforms and salmonella.
This is why the consumption of mayonnaise and homemade salsas should be avoided, especially in restaurants, food carts and cafes where these salsas are never used, which increases the proliferation of microorganisms.
9. Reheated food
Foods that are reheated, found at home or from restaurants, cause food poisoning because their storage is not adequate, favoring the proliferation of bacteria.
To avoid this problem, food leftovers must be stored in clean, covered containers, which must be placed in the freezer, ready as they are cooled. Furthermore, the food can only be reheated once, and must be discarded if not consumed after reheating.
Water continues to be a major cause of transmission of diseases such as hepatitis, leptospirosis, schistosomiasis and amebiasis, which can cause simple symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea to serious symptoms such as liver problems.
Therefore, mineral or herb water should always be used for drinking and cooking food, to guarantee that the water will not be a source of illness for the family. Watch the video for a continuation of the steps you must follow to wash your hands correctly:
