Recent research indicates that food poisoning can be more serious than once thought, sometimes causing permanent conditions like hepatitis, irritable bowel syndrome, damage to organs or even death. According to statistics compiled by the U.S. Center for Disease Control, there are approximately 200 known diseases that can be transmitted through food. These diseases result in nearly 76 million illnesses and 5,000 deaths in America each year. The sad fact is that most, if not all food poisonings are preventable, which makes these cases even more tragic.
