This One Vegan Wild Food Can Avert Food Poisoning
Food poisoning happens. It is a common, often mild, and possibly deadly illness, but can be averted. Food poisoning happens when food or drink is contaminated with bacteria. While The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports that 70 percent of food poisoning is caused by contaminated animal flesh, vegans and vegetarians are not immune. If you're wondering how to cure food poisoning fast, the strategy is to fight nature with nature. If your frequent restaurants for most of your meals, a natural and highly effective way to protect yourself and your children from food contamination, is to dose up on oregano.
How To Prevent Food Poisoning After Eating Spoiled Food
A news report published by the Center for Science in the Public Interest found that eating at restaurants doubles your chances of eating spoiled food and contracting food poisoning, compared to eating at home.
“Fresh produce, seafood, and packaged foods regulated by the Food and Drug Administration were responsible for more than twice as many solved outbreaks as meat and poultry products, which are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture” according to the report.
Additionally, the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 48 million people get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die from foodborne diseases each year in the United States. These are estimates for two major groups of foodborne illnesses – known pathogens and unspecified agents. To learn how to prevent food poisoning after eating spoiled food, look no further than your pantry.
Enter Oregano Oil.
Oregano is a highly potent natural antibiotic. Oregano is a medicinal anti-bacterial herb that high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals such potassium, calcium, iron, and magnesium. Oregano boasts potent antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties that are work to end colds, flu, viral infections, respiratory ailments, indigestion, stomach problems, and even PMS. Taken before dinner, oregano is also highly effective in preventing food poisoning, since oregano is known to remove poisons from the body.
Science Backs Oregano Up
In an Eastern European study, Polish Researchers investigated the antibacterial properties of oregano (Origanum heracleoticum L.) essential oil against clinical bacterial strains of Escherichia coli (E-coli) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa
). The antibacterial activity of oregano essential oil was investigated against 2 tested and 20 clinical bacterial strains of E-coli and 20 clinical strains of P. aeruginosa from patients with different clinical conditions. Susceptibility testing to antibiotics was carried out using disc-diffusion method.
Oregano Oil Active Against Bacteria
The results of experiments showed that the tested oil was active against all of the clinical strains from both bacteria, but strains of Escherichia coli were more sensitive to tested oil. Essential oil from Origanum heracleoticum L. inhibited the growth of Escherichia coli and P. aeruginosa clinical strains with different patterns of resistance.
The obtained outcomes will enable further investigations using oregano essential oil obtained from Origanum heracleoticum L. as alternative antibacterial remedies enhancing healing process in bacterial infections and as an effective means for the prevention of antibiotic-resistant strain development.
Take Oil Of Oregano Before Heading Out To Dinner
If cross-contamination or food poisoning is a concern of yours, take oil of oregano before dinner to avert an attack. Oil of oregano is available in capsules where health foods are sold. Should food poisoning occur, oil of oregano is safe to use liberally to take down symptoms, provided you’re able to keep it down.
Other Things You Can Do To Avert Food Poisoning
