  • ...and I ate this burrito and I think I got food poisoning

  • That sucks, how long was the incubation period?

  • *confused* what??

  • Hey everyone, Trace here for DNews! My buddy Jared who runs the DNews social media pages

  • got food poisoning today, so we thought we'd pull back the curtain on foodborne illness.

  • People CALL it food poisoning, but the medical community call it foodborne illness, which

  • makes sense. You're not being poisoned by food, but infected by something that's living

  • on the food. Commonly, food poisoning is caused by bacteria, viruses, molds, toxins, parasites

  • or allergens.

  • They range from the fairly well known, E. Coli and Salmonella to the far less known

  • campylobacter, toxoplasma, listeria and clostridium perfringens (clostridEum per-fringe-ens).

  • According to the FDA, most foodborne illnesses go away on their own and don't have lasting

  • effects -- but there are those, like E. Coli O157:H7 which can cause kidney failure and

  • death if not treated properly. Not all e.coli is bad, by the way. Some e.coli is part of

  • your natural gut bacteria!

  • A number of things can result in food being "poisoned" or infected. Most often, according

  • to the Mayo Clinic, food poisoning comes from food that’s mishandled or not cooked properly.

  • Maybe it's left under the warmer too long, not refrigerated properly, handled by a person

  • who didn't wash their hands, or touched a surface that wasn't recently cleaned. Every

  • contaminant has an ideal condition, and they vary from bacteria to virus.

  • And though you might be thinking, YES! I was at that place around the corner and TOTALLY

  • got it from there, you might be wrong. Some of these foodborne illnesses can strike days

  • or weeks after exposure because it takes a while for the organism to replicate in your

  • body and strike -- this is the incubation period.

  • The most common pathogens, C. Perfringens, Salmonella and the Norovirus have short incubation

  • periods ranging from 6-72 hours. All three cause diarrhea, but while salmonella and norovirus

  • ALSO cause vomiting, c. perfringens doesn't! E.coli and campylobacter incubate for several

  • days before striking and both result in severe diarrhea containing blood, and vomiting. Toxoplasma

  • can incubate for weeks and produce no symptoms at all, and listeria can live in your body

  • from three to SEVENTY DAYS before showing flu-like symptoms! You could eat something

  • two weeks before Halloween and not feel it til Christmas!

  • Some cases of food poisoning or food borne illness are even mistaken for the flu, because

  • people can't remember when they ate at that dodgy deli. And again, most of the time, you'll

  • just get better on your own, thanks to the immune system. But you won't feel awesome.

  • These diseases cause diarrhea because they're inhibiting your body from absorbing nutrients

  • and water OR they're causing MORE water to be added into the bowel. This means your body

  • has to pass all that stuff out of your digestive system, and in a hurry.

  • If you're nerds, like us, you can look up your symptoms on foodsafety.gov

  • and know what you got, how long you've had it, and what probably caused it! It's, like,

  • really nerdy. Also -- drink lots of water, but NOT caffeine or dairy because your stomach

  • is already irritated, those will make it worse. Make sure you consume some broth or electrolyte

  • drink to keep some nutrients flowing too. And, speaking of flow, DON'T try and stop

  • the flow out yer butt with anti-diarrhea meds. You're body's doing it on purpose, you'll

  • just get in the way, literally. If you see blood, call a doctor. When was the last time

  • you got food poisoning? Where'd you get it?
