    • When food or drinks are contaminated, food-borne diseases will occur. Food-borne diseases are also known as food poisoning.
    • Food-borne diseases are caused by the presence of harmful bacteria in the contaminated food or drinks.
    • Bacteria can cause infection directly in the intestine or release toxin (poisonous substances) in the bloodstream to cause infections.
    • When a person suffers food-borne diseases, he or she will show one or more of the following symptoms:
    1. fever
    2. diarrhoea
    3. vomiting
    4. dehydration
    5. stomach aches/cramps

    The symptoms of food-borne diseases may take several hours or days to develop because bacteria need to reproduce to sufficient numbers before they can induce serious infections.

    1. Keep the foodstuff in the refrigerators to slow down the reproduction of bacteria
    2. Practice good personal hygiene
