And our help alert its barbecue and picnic season, of course, and that means bacteria and parasites are here to party, so we’re talking about food poisoning and the myths that we all get wrong. Our chief health editor dr. parks and Andy here to break it all down. Yeah you know, Carolyn told me that I was getting rid of all barbecue is now food poisoning is a common health problem. Yet there are many myths. People still believe one popular myth is that you’ll get sick right away and you can blame your last meal, but it all depends on what you get sick with. If you have staff Staphylococcus aureus, the the bacteria will make you sick within one to six hours. But if you get e.coli that can take up to eight days before you feel ill and norovirus can take anywhere between 12 and 48 hours to it because it be variable alright, so many people believe it can’t happen to them right. Yet we know it can absolutely day. So that’s another myth. The CDC tells us that actually one in six Americans get sick from food poisoning and 3,000 died of years for serious problem. Another very common myth is blaming the Mayo. Commercial mayonnaise has high acid content. So this may actually slow or prevent bacterial growth. People also believe that the fruit with the rind left on like watermelons our safety, but Listeria bacteria, can live on the rind of fruit and cause serious problems. So what about temperature? Is there a myth there to like warm potato salad, that’s right, Glenda, so it’s important not to ignore. What’S called the danger zone and Glenna, that’s the temperature between 40 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, any bacteria and food – that’s sitting out will grow much faster to help you avoid food poisoning. I got my prescription so number. One food should not sit out for more than two hours. However, this drops to one hour if the temperature soars to ninety degrees, Fahrenheit or higher, also, if you’re, not sure how long foods been sitting out in the heat, follow this simple rule right, if in doubt throw it out and also when you mix meal with foods, Like potatoes or pasta be sure to keep these dishes cool below 40 degrees, Fahrenheit also wash all produce notice all the time under clean running water. Even if you plan to cut or peel it, it’s the best way to remove bacteria safely, all right, so our food poisoning symptoms, always the same and people think this dave, but that’s another myth. Food poisoning symptoms are connected to the type of bacteria or virus or Paris. I you’ve been infected with so symptoms can include diarrhea, nausea vomiting. We know but may be different for each type of infection, just check with your doctor, alright doc. Thank you so much right on time.
