Abstract:

Have you ever gotten sick from something you ate? You might have had a foodborne illness. Careless handling can introduce germs into the food supply germs that can make us sick. Vegetables, eggs, meat, and even water can carry viruses and bacteria that upset our digestive system. Foodborne illnesses are in the news as people are warned of outbreaks and investigators work to find the sources and prevent future contamination. Headline Science uses news stories and everyday applications to explain the science behind foodborne illnesses.
