You can get poisoning if you eat at places that are not clean enough. I got food poisoning twice throughout my life. One was from the truck at my work place and one was at home. I pass out on both of those occasions. I had trouble breathing and my head was hurting. I was lucky to recover from it without going to the hospital. You have to watch where you eat and what you eat sometimes. Did you know that portable gas stove can be a hazard if the gas is on your food. For example, if you grill directly on top of the gas stove, a lot of gas will be on that piece of food and it’ll get inside of your body. Gas can be a hazard. You can have trouble breathing if you ingest food with gas in it.

Street Food

Street food is one type of food that you should avoid. It’s easy to get food poisoning from street vendors. The vendors don’t have a sink and they don’t wash their hands or food that often. The utensils can be dirty. You should avoid buying anything that is not boxed on the street. This is the case when you travel to a foreign country. Food from truck vendors can be unsanitary too.
