Default food poisoning

Hi, this has been on my mind for sometime now, and I wanted to ask you
all a few questions. I have read an article at food poisoning
http://medical-health-care-informati...d_Handling.asp

which says 'Food poisoning results when you eat foods contaminated by
harmful organisms, such as bacteria, parasites, or viruses. In the
United States, an estimated 76 million people get food poisoning each
year. 1
What are the symptoms and possible complications of food poisoning?
If you develop food poisoning after eating contaminated food, the first
symptoms will usually include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The time
it takes for symptoms to appear, the severity of the symptoms, and the
duration of the illness depend upon the infecting organism and your
overall health.'
How is food poisoning treated?
For most cases of food poisoning, treatment involves managing the
symptoms to avoid complications. You will need to replace fluids and
electrolytes lost through vomiting and diarrhea. If you have severe
dehydration that cannot be managed at home, you may need to be treated
in the hospital. Antidiarrheal medications are usually not recommended
and may make the condition worse. In rare cases, such as for botulism
and E. coli, immediate and intensive medical care is needed.

While it must be true, I wonder what you have to say about it. Do let
me know! Regards,
